With the avian flu lockdown we have given our chooks a large extended covered run for scratching around which we let them into the part of the day. I have fitted the little door for the ‘go’ run into the side wall of our big walk in run to allow the chickens backwards and forwards between these two runs -it does the job really well.

This works really well as it gives you the ability to have a door at the end for access to feeders but also a door at the side to enable access to the Eglu door to encourage reluctant ducks when they don’t think it’s bedtime yet????
Very happy with this. Nothing to do with Eglu run though .. .just makes fantastic badger gate set into the wire fence!
If you intend to use the 2M run with an Eglu Go an additional door panel is a necessity IMO.
I have placed mine adjacent to the coop, making cleaning of the front of the house easy and improving access to the smaller half of the run.
Very please with my Eglu Go and attached run, so easy to clean. I purchased the clear cover which i have on all the time, it give excellent shelter from wind and rain. I also bought an extra door, so i have one on the side and one at the end for easier access.
I think the run is supposed to fit just over the front top of the Eglu, but i can't keep it attached it always moves slightly apart, but don't think this will cause any problems
An intrinsic problem with the run supplied with the Go is the difficulty of reaching the other end of the run from the one entrance. The chooks seem to have a knack for piling up the chippings in the Eglu doorway so the door jams and it's very difficult to get in to clear it out. We've found this extra panel with door to be an excellent solution. Although it's described as 'End panel with Door' it fits into the sides as well, and having replaced the side panel nearest the Go with this one, we now have access at both ends of the run.
This is a great idea - it's not only young fit people people who want to keep hens and anything which makes access easier is going to be a hit with those of us who are getting a bit creaky! I wish I had something similar for our Eglu Cube, too.
These extra door panels are fantastic. I have one door on each side, one at the Go end, one at the other end. This means that I can get into everywhere very easilt. I wish I'd bought a second additional door at the same time (to save on postage). to put at the end. This is great for the chooks as they can have multiple exits and entrances. It's great for me, as I use my Go mainly for chicks, and having multiple access points makes it less easy for the chicks to hide at the other end of the run from the door.
Omlet should offer additional panels as part of the buying process and, if they are replacing panels (rather than extras, if you see what I mean) they could perhaps be offered at a cheaper price. I will no doubt be adding another one to my basket next time I make an Omlet purchase.
I bought an end panel with door and a plain panel to extend my run, I have managed to source some mesh of same to make a roof panel. I will send you some pictures. The house is good for three hens but the run does need an extra metre.
Overall a great product and your service is friendly and helpful. Many thanks.
