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.

We like the coop, easy to set up, clean and use. The chickens are very safe in this coop and seem to take to it easily. Great purchase on our part. Review for: Eglu Cube Large Chicken Coop with Accessories - Leaf Green

I purchased the Eglu Cube after researching the internet for a coop that would take up minimal space and provide all the safety feature chickens would need and be hassle free. This coop does not fail and checks all the boxes in my chicken coop wish list. My three favorite features are the wheels which allow the coop to be relocated in less than a minute with minimal effort, efficiency with cleaning the poop board and the automatic door opener.
Areas for improvement:
Smaller Fence Opening:
I installed hardwire clothe to the fence by using zip ties. This was added because the original fence spacing can still be accessed by small rodents.
I'm a photo reader/instruction follower however some wording, especially for key information would have helped me during the construction phase. Having access to the YouTube videos was a nice touch though
One screw was not properly drilled into a hex nut. When attempting to unscrew, the hex nut started turning resulting in screw sticking out and no way to unscrew the misaligned screw. I've used a drill and even plyers to unscrew it without success. Review for: Eglu Cube Large Chicken Coop with 9ft Run and Wheels Package - Leaf Green

The wait period is a bit long but my girls seem happy with their first coop Review for: Eglu Cube Large Chicken Coop with 9ft Run and Wheels Package - Purple

We have had our four rescue chickens for a few months now and I have mixed feelings about the coop. It’s very easy to clean which is the big selling point, it only takes me about 5 minutes a day.
Negative is that it doesn’t have room for perches, which are beneficial for chickens as they don’t sleep in their poop, and it means bullied chickens can escape from the rest.
It was tricky to put together, I do feel that Omlet could have made it easier by attaching some bits for you!
It’s very expensive and if I were doing it again, I would probably buy a cheaper one! Review for: Eglu Cube Mk2 with Wheels and Accessories - Leaf Green

Thank you very much for your message. Your feedback has been passed on to our product design team, they will have a look at further improvement possibilities.
Regarding the presence of perches, the Eglu Cube already includes rounded roosting bars for your chickens at night. For the day time, you can always add one of our perches in the run.
In order to assist you with the construction, we provide in addition of the instruction manual useful videos on our website, giving you step-by-step instructions. Don't hesitate to contact us as well, by phone or by email, if you need further assistance.

Of all the many chicken coops I researched, yours stood out as the most well thought out design. I love the predator skirt, great idea! Our chickens are so happy to have greenery to nibble all day long and we're happy not to have a dead spot in our lawn, and although that's true of any mobile coop, yours is more lightweight and even weakling me can move it, which is great! I would tweak a couple of little things though if I could. My husband turned the wheel handles from pointing in and down to out and up. This helps it not drag on the ground when we try to move it. If the wheels were a little larger and/or if the construction was tighter it would be alot easier to move on uneven ground. I wish I would have gotten the handles, that would have made moving it easier as well. If the cover was a few inches longer to cover the whole length of the extension piece then on hot days they would have more shade and they would get less wet on rainy days. The little plastic clips break very easily so we had to use some zip ties. Overall though we're happy and are enjoying chickens again for the first time in many years!

The Eglu Cube is a great little coop. Love the secure plastic sleeping quarters and easy access nesting box. It is surprisingly sturdy and the wire enclosure plus skirt really seems like it could deter predators. Assembly was not a whole lot of fun - it took half the garage and almost a week, but you don’t need a lot of skill or tools, just perseverance. Adding the wheels is a necessity if you wish to move the Eglu anywhere, the whole contraption is too big and heavy to move unless there are multiple people to lift and pull. The optional handles are also needed, as there isn’t really much to hold onto when trying to wheel it to a new grass area. The girls seem very happy in their new home, two Easter eggers, two Cuckoo Marans and a Salmon Faverolle all appear quite pleased to peck grass and enjoy fresh air, and they learned to put themselves inside to bed the first night. Overall it is an attractive and compact hen home for the small flock owner! Review for: Eglu Cube Large Chicken Coop with 6ft Run and Wheels Package - Leaf Green

The enclosed run provides great peace of mind for the safety of my chicks. I've also used the run for other young animals as they are introduced to the farm while the chicks are roosting inside the coop. I love that the whole thing is light enough for me to move around myself. The handles are on back-order right now, but will make moving it even easier when they arrive. I'm very happy with my Eglu Coop! Review for: Eglu Cube Large Chicken Coop with 6ft Run and Wheels Package - Purple
This is a great little run except for two features that might get your chickens killed:
1) The mesh is large enough that a raccoon can get their hands inside and grab a chicken.
2) the knobs to open the nesting box and main coop area can be manipulated by a racoon.
The main issue is that this is a coop built in the UK (I think) which is a place that does not have racoons. I STRONGLY sugest that Eglu make a US model with a 1/2" mesh size and knobs that can be secured. I ended up covering the whole thing in machine cloth (1/2") and riveting hasps to both the main coop opening and the nesting box opening. If you are not willing to do these extra steps, than take a pass on this coop. Review for: Eglu Cube Large Chicken Coop with 9ft Run and Wheels Package - Leaf Green

We love this coop mainly because it's so easy to keep clean! I couldn't give it 5 stars because the door to the run is off and doesn't quite line up right, making it not so simple to open and close. The double brackets show strain because the alignment is off, I just hope they don't break. Review for: Eglu Cube Large Chicken Coop with 9ft Run and Wheels Package - Leaf Green
