I was downsizing my flock and chicken coop so decided to go for an Eglu go up. Positives are it is super easy to move around and clean, also with it being raised off the ground the chickens can sit below for some shelter. It also looks good and should last for a long time. A great extra that a feeder, water trough and some egg boxes come included. Only negative I have is that there are no true roosting bars for them to properly perch on.

Omlet Says: Hi Danielle,
Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We are glad to read your overall satisfaction about your coop. We would like to bring you some reassurance about our roosting bars.
The roosting bars provided in the coop are specially designed with a structured surface and rounded corners where the chickens will sleep comfortably at night.
Although they don’t look like traditional wooden perches, roosting bars are great for larger breeds who find it tricky to jump up to a raised perch, or recently rescued hens who don’t have the strength to flap, and the shape of the bars makes sure most of the droppings fall straight onto the slide out, easy clean tray underneath.
We stay at your disposal if you have any further questions.

i clean my Eglu go up once a week with brush and water, but still have white marks (urine?) which don't want to go. Any advise what to clean it with, so those white/gray marks go?

Omlet Says: Hi Eva,
Thank you for your message.
We would recommend you to use white distilled vinegar ; pour it into a spray bottle without watering it down. Spray the vinegar onto the moldy surface and leave it to sit for an hour. Finally, wipe the area clean with water and allow the surface to dry. Any smell from the vinegar should clear within a few hours.
We would not recommend to use bleach.

I have an Omlet Eglu and run so am familiar with the product. I would have preferred that the Go UP run panels to not have been in so many pieces. It makes the run less stable than the regular Omlet run.

So my rescue babies love this set up, easy to move and clean, looks good in the garden, only down side for me is having to twist to put the feeder and drinker in each morning, doesn’t feel good if you have any back issues. I think it’s just the way you have to hook the feeder onto the sloping bars, there’s no easy way of doing it, otherwise I cannot fault it.

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
