I have the Omlet Go Up. It is a great coop. It took a couple hours to assemble but it was pretty straight forward. My neighbors bought a wood coop a couple months ago and it looks nice but it isn't holding up. That is why I decided to go with the Up and Go. It was a little more expensive but seems like it will last 5 times longer. It is also a lot easier to clean. We have the wheels attached so we can moved it to the garden in the fall for pest and weed control. I am very happy with my purchase.

I've had the Eglu Go Up for 3 days now. It was a little tricky to put together but now it's complete it is working brilliantly.
From my point of view it is super easy to clean. The hens (Silkies) aren't loving it just yet. Their previous coop had a solid floor with Easichick bedding and they're struggling to adjust to the plastic roosting bar floor. They all (4) try to squeeze into the nesting box area and only 3 of them fit so 1 hen has to draw the short straw and lay on the barred floor which doesn't look comfortable as she has been sitting beak to tail along the bar instead of wing to wing (if that makes sense). I think they find the plastic a bit slippery too.
Hoping they'll come to love it as much as I do in time.

I upgraded from an Eglu classic to an Eglu Go Up in February and can only say this has been an investment. It's easy to clean, no more bending down and removing fiddly keys etc. I keep four pekin bantams and the nest is big enough for 2 to share if they want to lay at the same time. The ladder grips are an excellent feature due to my girls feathered feet and they seem to be happier up off the ground, as the coop is raised no nasty rodents can burrow under the coop and the feeder is well covered to enable the girls to feed. I have even been able to plant herbs to benefit the girls around the coop and make it into a real feature of the garden, I wish I had bought it sooner. Love it!
Really pleased with this item so much so that we are thinking of adding more sections. Very straightforward to assemble. Clear instructions. Our only quibble was that the courier company would not give any indication of the time they might deliver the product. This would have been helpful.
everything came as ordered. seems like good quality. got it for 4 bantam chickens. hoping in 3 weeks I'll be able to put them out. then I can tell you more. Like the idea that it should be easy to clean. I think the only problem I'll have is getting them in the coop at night. that should be fun .
We had two home-made runs attached to Eglus in our old garden and planned to build new ones after we moved house. We purchased two 2M runs as a temporary solution while we moved as they were very easy to assemble, disassemble and transport (and I do mean really easy!) However now we've used them for a few weeks we're in no rush to build larger runs, these are ideal for our needs with two chickens happily roaming in each.
I have two minor gripes:
The shade supplied is very small. In order to provide some permanent shade and to protect the feeders from rain, I had to create some custom sized tarpaulins and attach using the Omlet supplied bungees.
The other issue is the access doors are small. They are perfectly adequate for accessing food and water, but if you need to delve a little further into the run (when the hens are cheeky and lay in the run!) it can be tricky to squeeze in.
But overall we are very pleased and would certainly purchase more should the need arise.
The instructions are easy to follow, so long as they are studied well first. It took us a lot longer to put up than the instruction suggested as our garden is not totally flat as the advert gardens are. I did find the clips fiddly to close at times though. But we love it. Makes putting the hens to bed, and getting the eggs so much easier than our other set up. We had a Go Up in a 6'x10' run ,so it was a tight fit. The set up we have now is great and I would recommend this but with the additional pet run
