After keeping hens in my garden for many years I finally decided to push the boat out and buy an eglu cube, I saw one close up in a school yard in Torquay when attending a wedding that was using the building, so I had plenty of time to inspect it. Then I added some hens from the BHWT which included an Omlet brochure which did the extra kick to buy. Here in Herefordshire I have red mite problem with nest sites in the nooks and crannies of the wooden coops. I am hoping that with DE and clean bed straw this will not be a problem with the Cube. So far so good, I like all the doors and safety features. A fox only has to be lucky once to get your birds but we have to protect our luck every day. I am hoping that the large outlay will repay even after years of other runs and expense over the next few years in the cube. I am using this 4metre run and cube as a hen tractor to prepare the soil for vegetable growing by means of moving the run aroun a large garden and orchard
I bought my Eglu Cube Mk 2 several months ago. I had 3 bantams at the time. Mandy and her friends had a very old Eglu Classic. When I introduced two Light Sussex bantams they were very stupid and insisted on sleeping in the walk-in run. Mandy, the only original bantam left, decided to join them. They slept in the run (which is covered) all winter. Even when it was -5!
I wanted to introduce more to my flock and bought the cube. The girls wouldn't go in that either! I moved them to the Classic, in the Classic run. They agreed to go in the coop at night! I got myself 3 Pekins who all went into their Eglu Cube from the first night!
Now they are all integrated, and 5 of them trot up the ladder to bed each night. I'm still having to pick Mildred up and put her inside, but hopefully she'll get the hang of it soon.
I love the Cube! It took us a day to put it together and attach it to the walk-in run. It's easy to clean out and is warm and dry. I still have my original Classic as an isolation wing.
As a chicken novice the web site is a superb education. The product arrived on time and is both attractive and practical. A thoroughly pleasant and efficient experience from start to finish.
Really pleased with my cube - was finding my old coop difficult to clean but with the cube it's so easy
My Pekin bantam took a few days of being 'persuaded' out each morning but soon got used to it
Absolutely love this new Eagle cube. I have 6 hens. I can easily clean and move it around the garden! The service was very good, everything arrived quick. I wish I’d bought it as my first coop! I would definitely recommend!
Absolutely love this new hen house, wish I’d bought it years ago! I have 6 hens who have taken to it straight away, they even got the hang of the ladder on the first go. The nest box is great and I now get clean eggs and everything is easy to access and having wheels I can easily move it around the garden! It’s great knowing they are safe locked in the run if I’m out, otherwise my girls have access to the garden. The service was very good, everything arrived quick and customer services were helpful. I would definitely recommend!
Fabulous service, from ordering, packaging and delivery of a high quality product. My hens are very happy in their new home
This is our second omlet and the cube is a much better product all round. Our ladies are very happy. And no more soiled eggs thanks to a desperate compartment that can be closed off when laying is over for the day.
Very happy with my Eglu Cube. I thought there was a mistake when I managed to have a next day delivery slot. My son and I put it together with out any problems other than the sun going down, I hadn't read the bit that said how long to allow!
I've thought about having an Eglu for two years but this summers red mite infestation was too much. I hate using chemicals/insecticides around my hens so I took the plunge and I'm really pleased. The hens took to it straight away. The wheels make it movable and they are currently scarifying my lawn. My only small criticism is it would be nice if it had some sort of handles to lift and steady the run end when moving it. I was wary about the ultra modern design in my country garden but it looks great so all in all I'm very pleased.
I appreciate a well thought out product. I was going for an easy to clean, safe, insulated and easy to move coop. Safety and sanitation were high on my list. Thanks for thinking outside the box Omlet.
