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.

A simple design that is practical and easy to use. The chickens seem happy and are fascinating to watch. Cleaning is made easy by the clever way that the cube comes apart. Feeders and water dispenser are designed to fit onto the run and again are simple to maintain. In summary, very pleased with our purchase especially the egges which have started coming daily now the hens have been here a week! Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
This is a great product. The size and shape is really good allowing it to fit in quite tight places, while still allowing easy access for cleaning and egg removal. It was a little tight to put together and the roof could have been a better fit, but it is water tight and looks fantastic. It is really easy to clean and the chickens love it. The run fits really nicely to it and it seems really secure. The colour is lush, it looks really good in the garden. I have major chicken envy from all my friends and the kids think it was well worth loosing some toys to make space for it all. The accessories are great to, it all adds to the great look and functional design. Brilliant. Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Purple
I was very pleased with the cube and so were my newly acquired ex-battery hens. They worked out straight away (somehow !!) where to find their provisions, where to sleep and where to lay but were a bit unsure of the ladder. They plucked up courage to try it after a couple of days but now (after a week) they ignore it altogether preferring to just jump in and out. My husband did have to make a couple of minor alterations during assembly to create a perfect fit for all the parts. Thanks! Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
Our cube was assembled by a chap called George, who was friendly, informative and most efficient. He was able to offer helpful hints and tips regarding the care of our hens. We had a couple of problems, those being a small tear in the canopy and the coating on the door pegs, but both where replaced within days - thank you.
The only thing that I would liked to have changed was the 'hand' of the door to the run. It would have been useful if this was interchangeable or a hand could have been specified at time of order? Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
Great idea but could do with some refinements! Very tiny door to run makes it virtually impossible to encourage chickens up the ladder for the first few nights and/or to reach additional food and water containers in run (mine don't like the Grub and Glug).
Not possible to put cube and run against a wall or fence for added rain/wind protection (or just for convenience in a smaller garden) as you need access to the rear to remove trays to clean, access to one side to get to nesting box, the opposite side for the handle to close the cube door and the front for the chickens to get in and out of the run. Would be much better if the handle for the sliding door was the same side as nesting box and door to the run was placed at the rear, under the cube. It is such a tiny door it would easily fit.
Have just ordered the wind/winter shades to add some protection but the wind shade only fits one panel beneath the cube (not all three) and the winter one covers top and one side. Would like to see a waterproof cover added that at least covers the area underneath the cube, to rear and both sides, to provide protection on those days when it just doesn't stop raining.

It lives up to all expectations. Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
I had serious doubts about spending a lot of money on a chicken house and especially one i hadn't even seen! However, I can't rate the cube highly enough. I've had it for two weeks now and my four girls love it. I got the extension too as otherwise i felt it would be far too cramped for them. I would not put anymore hens in there. On Sat it took me 6 mins to clean thoroughly - i clean out the poo trays every other day and i line the trays with newspapers so the job takes me about 30 seconds. My girls are VERY happy, as am I. Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
I simply adore the quality and design of this, the Rolls Royce of hen hotels. The Cube was easily assembled by me and my 18 month old son (who surprisingly wasn't that much help) in about 90 mins. We collected the girls on Friday and Hermione laid our first egg on Sunday, which really was the best Mothers Day present I've ever had! Both my children love the new arrivals and I would highly recommend this product to anyone who has ever thought of grabbing a bit of the good life for themselves. The girls love going up to bed in the evening and I can sleep tight in the knowledge that they are warm and safely tucked up too. Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Purple
The cube is a brilliant piece of kit. The chickens love it - we love it and everyone who has come to visit us loves it.
The only thing that would make it better would be if the run section could easily unclip from the cube to make cleaning the front of the cube and the steps much easier. Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
Well, after considerable thought we have decided to keep bantams again and after looking at an appropriate residence for said bantys, we selected the Eglu in a fetching shade of blue. Today was the day for construction! And I have to say that the instructions were crystal clear and after a couple of hours (including tea breaks and time to stand back and admire my handiwork!) the Eglu was finished! EXCELLENT!! The only criticism I could say was that there were a couple of really tight bolt hole alignments which resulted in a bit of huffing and puffing....other than that, a superb house for the bantys !! Keep up the good work! Keith and Janet Winmill Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
