This is great it holds my 6 chickens comfortably. It is easy to keep clean and sanitary. The wheels allow me to roll it about the yard every few days to keep the chickens with new bugs and grass to eat. The only thing I would add is a 4 inch wide perch inside the coop. We just took a 2xx4 and added short legs and they love to sleep on the perch. This would be a great addition for omelet to build in a plastic 4 inch wide perch that is removable. Excellent product and so happy with the purchase.

It was a pain to assemble. The snap closures don't hold it together tight so the panels wiggle against each other. My thumbs were raw from opening and closing all the snaps. Our run came damaged. The green coating chipped in several places because they were not wrapped individually. Needles to say disappointed for the price. Not enough to send it back though. Wish customer service would call back.

I have found the cube easy to clean. As I have postioned it permanently on a concrete base, it is not so easy to rake over the wood chippings and am considering changing to gravel, which was suggested by the chap who delivered the chickens as this can be hosed down. This seems a good solution as, whilst we are at home, the chickens roam free so will have the best of both worlds. Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
Brilliant product, exceptionally easy to clean with the added benefit of no red mites. This product is far superior than all the traditional arks/houses I have researched and I am so glad I chose this to house my precious hens. They manage the ladder and roost perfectly on the plastic perches although I know friends who have bantams have a little problem negotiating the ladder. My only reservation is the Super Glugs, bought an extra one only to find my hens do not get enough water and will have to source an alternative product. At the moment having to resort to an ice-cream container to stop them dying of thirst! Delivery driver was a bit of a scrooge not wanting to hand over the "included" items but luckily we knew to what we were entitled and managed to get him to give these to us after prompting. Buy an Eglu Cube, you will never regret it!!! Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
Finally got round to giving my opinion on the cube and extended run which I have now had for four weeks. I would fully recommend to anyone thinking of purchasing having myself looked at all the other options before taking the plunge. Delivery on time. Easy to assemble and to date no leaks. Living in Cumbria where it rains all the time if there was going to be any it would have happened by now. It has been well worth the initial outlay as it is very easy to clean and maintain. The chickens have now become part of the family and my two terriers seem to have accepted the new editions. Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
I ordered my Eglu cube and was given an earliest delivery date of nearly 3 weeks time - given that I had chosen the normal green I found this a tad disappointing. I was especially irritated when, having arranged my day off work to receive the cube, Omlets couriers actually delivered it the day before. I enjoyed constructing my cube but did have to play about with it to get the gaps even around the body. To date have had no issues with leaks, however my girls really don't like the ladder and the claim that the cube is easily maneuvered is not correct unless there is a second person involved. On the whole though I think the product is very funky, if a trifle expensive, and would recommend it to others who want to have an aesthetic chicken coup in their garden.

We bought the cube at the Ideal Home show. I was attracted to it by the simplicity, good looks, and the ease of keeping clean. We were contacted as promised by phone, and the order arrived by post, at the allotted time. All the pieces were there, and it was very simple to put together, with easy to follow. The cube is now assembled in our garden, and looks great. Now all we need is the chickens to put in it! We are really pleased and would thoroughly recommend the omlet cube.

Based on only a week's experience so far, I think the cube is excellent. My 3 hens took to it immediately and seem very content mooching around in there.
However, I do think that the ladder is really badly designed, and needs more rungs, closer together, and maybe even to reach nearer to the floor. Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
Overall a very easy to clean and maintain hen house, the fact that the hens have to roost on the slat floor means our 4 hens all end up piling into the nesting area though - very messy or requires eviction later on. If there was a way of having a raised perch this would possibly enhance roosting options I think.
The couriers that are used for delivery are rubbish. Nothing ever arrives when it is scehduled (I have made two orders, cube and run extension). Dump them now! Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
I am really pleased with the cube - it gives my chooks plenty of roosting/laying room and is really easy to keep clean.
I felt that the spaces between the rungs on the ladder were too big for my bantams and made an enclosed wooden one which hooks on. I like the original idea of it not reaching the floor as it deters mice etc.
As weasels are a problem where I live I have covered the run in a smaller gauge green wire and secured with tie wraps and tent pegs. Whilst this was time consuming and cost about £40 I feel it was well worth the extra effort. Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
Having been really happy with my green eglu for nearly a year I felt it was about time to upgrade. Roy delivered my funky new cube and assembled it in time for my new arrivals. I have now expanded from 3 Omlet chickens (sadly Gladys passed away quite soon) to 8 mixed variety birds. Only thing I would say is that I really liked being able to completely take the eglu apart to clean - and am struugling with the best way to go about the same procedure with the cube - any suggestions would be gratefully received.

We can't fault the product its ease of use, and the design is excellent. The delivery was on time, the man who brought it was helpful & knowledgeable. The first egg arrived within an hour of the driver leaving. The after sales service has been good and supportive. When one of the hens appeared to be a bit off colour, an e-mail to 'Barbara' was quickly answered with helpful advice and reassurance. A telephone advice line would have complemented the information provided electronically, and allowed easier discussion of signs and symptoms.
