Four hours of wrestling with heavy bits and fiddly bits and it all went together. Other ingredients necessary include a little swearing and plenty of brute force and ignorance in places. There are some bits of rubber seal left over that aren't mentioned in the instructions though. Once together the Cube looks pretty good. I didn't get my chooks till a couple of weeks later so it got the chance to be rain and wind tested and has so far withstood some horrific downpours. With the chooks now in I can appreciate its easy enough to clean out being at waist height. I've had to shield one part of the run with tarp due to the awful weather we've been having so the birds have a little shelter. When it comes to moving it to another patch of ground I can see I'll struggle (looks to be at least a two person job). Overall I'm happy with it so far. *update* Our first ever egg has been laid today!! Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
I am new to chicken keeping this year and started out with a wooden hen house and run with three hens but now I have extended my flock to six hens so I decided to purchase a green Cube which is absolutely brilliant! It arrived flat packed and was very easy to assemble. I purchased two extensions to the run so there is plently of space for my chooks to run around. The cube is easy to clean and move about but two people are needed to move it and some handles at the rear would be useful. I have purchased a large clear tarpaulin which stretches right across the run and down the sides so they should keep nice and dry and snug throughout the winter. My chooks are very happy in their new home and very safe from Mr Fox!

The cube makes chicken keeping easy for all. My 9 year old son and I were able to build it in 1 hr 40 mins, which was very impressive.
It is very easy to clean out, a 10 minute job.
Best of all it is easy to move around the garden so the lawn is not being destroyed. Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
The standard run is too small for the number of chickens indicated by Omlet if they are kept in it all the time. I only have 4 and it is too crowded for them, resulting in bad pecking behaviour. The hens (ex-battery) haven't mastered the ladder so they fly out of the house and bang straight in to the cage. During the day they knock off the grub feeder.
On the plus side I have full confidence in the security of the hens against predators and the house is easy to keen clean and do the daily routines. Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
Excellent service. Everything arrived as planned and was quickly assembled and instructions given by a most competent and informative person. The chickens started laying eggs within an hour of arriving! No problems whatsoever - I would thoroughly recommend this method of looking after chickens to anyone.

Love it, love it, love it - It keeps my chickens safe from our local Mr Fox. It's so easy to clean (I have cleaned a lot of animal housing in my time and this is by far the easiest). I had no problems constructing my Eglu Cube and did most of it alone. All the pieces were there and went together well.
If there was a wish list I would ask for a handle on the 1 metre run extension to make it easier to move, as moving the complete unit is a two person job.
Oh and my chickens love it too! Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
Had the cube for just over a month now. We all love it.
Omlet came and set it up. The girls took to it really quickly and made it their home. It's easy to keep clean.
It's really well designed. In my opinion it's the best chicken house on the market. :) Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
Really pleased with the eglu cube so far, swift delivery and easy setup, the cube is movable but does require two people what ever the instructions say and could do with two handles on the actual eglu house for ease of movability, easy to clean, really low maintenance, chickens have taken to drinking out of the top of the nipple drinker and we have now moved drinker to the floor as the girls much prefer to dunk their heads in the water, so maybe a choice of drink dispensers should be on offer when buying the cube package but over all would give the product 4 out of 5.

I bought a cube with extension, my 3 chickens enjoy it and it is easy to clean... but it is certainly not easy to move (possibly due to the 1m extension). The nesting box also gets wet when it rains, so not great for the amount of money it costs. The rain covers are a bit pathetic too. However, it looks cool in my garden!
