I used this as an extra house and run for our chickens after they had a chick earlier in the year who was unable to use the ladder of the eglu cube for some time.
I am delighted with our purchase and have kept it as extra accomodationfor using in another part of the garden or for emergency use should I need to separate any of the girls. It is well made, looks good and I feel confident that the chickens are safe and secure.
They love it & so do I!
I have had an eglu classic with standard run for about 8 years and have always been thrilled with it. Really easy to keep the coop & nest box clean, so when we moved house and had more space we didn't hesitate to enlarge our chicken empire with a large walk in run. The team at Omlet were really helpful with advice on which connecter piece we needed to attach our eglu classic to the new run & all went together with no trouble. Needless to say, as most chicken owners will understand, after a few weeks of our 3 original Girls; Sam, Merry & Pippin living in the lap of luxury with what must have seemed like acres of space, we decided to add another eglu classic & connecter panel along with another 3 girls! We have also acquired an Eglu Go as an extra coop for their free range run/ isolation wing!. Again the Omlet team have been great with advising me which pieces I needed to make it into the Go Up with the frame and wheels. Brilliant by the way, so much easier to clean out at hip height! Also spares of roosting tray with nest box and the top to food tray( otherwise my girls thoroughly enjoy dancing in their food.)all in all, Omlet products are great, easy to clean, move around if necessary & extremely hard wearing. The team are always helpful, chatty & polite when I ring. My only bug bear is the website doesn't list all products available, the roosting bars/ nest box & top to feeder for the eglu go we're on a 'hidden' page I was informed by staff and the cost of postage has nigh on tripled in the last year! Combine this with who ever they are now using for delivery appear to be unable to comprehend the number of packages they are supposed to be delivering, if you do get the correct number, the boxes are broken & battered, we had one delivery that had split the feed bags, not great 20kg of feed all over our porch! So, Omlet, fantastic products, seriously brilliant & I will when we move to our small holding be looking to purchase at least 1 eglu cube, But please please please tweek your website & sort out your delivery issues .
Looks fab very excited to get my quails in and get it up and running ! X
I have a need to isolate two of my chickens this product is the right size and very sturdy with a great eye on security.
Cinnamon, Clove and Nutmeg have been enjoying their new home for two months. They are very happy and so am I, it only takes 30mins to clean their home.
Excellent product so far, chicks seem to like it.
After much deliberation over the years we took the decision to buy the Eglu Classic with 2m run. Why did we not buy one from the outset when we started keeping chickens 7 years ago! It looks good, the girls love it and it is so easy to clean. Expensive but worth every penny.
I've owned my Eglu Classics for 10 years now, and they are fantastic in every way! So easy to move and clean, and visitors admire their appealing design. They hold up magnificently in the harsh winters in upstate New York, and we just love them!
I hope there isn't a time limit for reviews! I bought my Eglu in 2003. I was living in Ireland at the time and about to enter the world of chicken owning. Now I have hens, turkeys, ducks and geese and live in France, and my faithful Eglu is still in permanent use. As well as all the above-mentioned varieties of fowl, it's also housed rabbits, guinea-pigs and kittens at assorted times over the years!
The Eglu is superbly made, every bit of it. Even after two international shippings and 13 years of being exposed to every weather condition from 40 degrees Celsius in summer to minus 20 in winter with plenty of plain awul weather thrown in between those extremes, everything from the clips upwards is still in good condition. I count my Eglu amongst the very best things I ever invested in. It's safe, sturdy, practical and ingeniously designed, and at this rate it will be handed down from generation to generation for many years to come!
In a nutshell, Eglus are awesome.
