Great that our girls are now fox proof BUT given the cost of the Cube, it ought to be perfect by now. To my mind there are 4 main design faults:
1. No internal night perch - why ever not? Our girls end up sleeping in the nesting box which means that the eggs and they get covered in poo - not good
2. Not enough steps on the ladder - it must be easy to add one more, surely?
3. An external day perch would be excellent at the back of the run underneath the coup to ensure they could perch somewhere when locked in the run. This would give them a bit of comfort when the ground is wet.
4. The grub is great but the glug doesn't provide them with water quickly enough especially when the weather has been but. I've ended up abandoning it and hooking a water container up instead.
Overall, great for peace of mind from a safety point of view but still lots of improvements to be made on the design front. Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Purple
Omlet Says: Thanks for your review, we have now launched an updated version of the Eglu Cube which has solved all these issues.
I love the idea of the cube, it looks great, it is fantastic and easy to clean, and easy to access the birds and eggs. I have had problems with mites, and the plastic makes it very hard for them to hide and easy to treat. However I am disappointed how small it is for 10 birds. I am also slightly concerned it may be drafty in the winter- this may be how I put it together, but could not find a flatter surface in my garden to construct it.
It is a great hen house, but I would recomend no more than 8 birds, and definitely a 3m run. Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
The eglu cube is great. We bought it complete with 6 chickens who started laying the same day!
The guy who delivered was really helpful, he put the cube together and showed us how to hold the chickens and clip their wings. It's easy to clean and can be moved quickly with 2 people, it's a bit of a struggle on your own!
We have put a fence around the run so during the day the chickens can have a large area to run around in!
Would recommend the Eglu to anyone! Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
I have found the cube to work very well. The assembly instructions were easy to understand and I managed to put it together myself. My two chickens seem to like it very much and have had no trouble using the ladder. It has also been easy to clean.
Only down side has been my chickens seem to like using one end of their nest box as a toilet and not sure how to train them not to do this and instead to use the roosting area where the droppings trays are located! Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Purple
I love it and the chickens love it - easy to move and clean Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Purple
Excellent product chickens love it looks good works well.
But back end leaks in the rain one in the laying area one in the sleeping area one bracket didn't line up had to be drilled for bolt to fit.
Needs to be tweaked slightly to stop leaks.
But over all the cube is a really good product.
It's so easy to clean and well designed
Simple to put together I really enjoyed building it ready for the girls.
Exellent product glad I bought it. Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
The cube surpassed expectations. It looks good and is beautifully easy to keep clean. Its design is faultless. We seem to have four happy egg producing chickens. Wish we'd thought of it years ago. Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
Very pleased with the speed of delivery. Found it was easier to put together than I thought I would. So easy to clean, its great. The only reason I haven't given the cube full marks is that I am worried about how draughty it is going to be in the winter for my girls. I feel that the back panel could fit a bit snugger than it does, but otherwise I love it. Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
Safe practical and easy to clean, unhappy with fit of the back panel - large gaps which I will probably have to plug with something in the winter to stop the chickens getting frost bite. Review for: Eglu Cube Mk1 Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Green
I am really pleased with my Eglu Cube. My rehomed battery hens love it. They settled in really quickly and started laying immediately. It is easy to clean and to collect the eggs from. My children help out as it is so straightforward. I have spent a long time wondering whether I should get chickens and having finally decided I wish I had done so ages ago.
