Although I only have 3 girls i feel happier that they have the extra space for when we can't let them free range.
A well made product, however by the time you have extended the run another 2m, it makes the whole thing very difficult to move + therefore very difficult to clean.
Also, can't really place anything interesting for the hens inside, perches etc, as you can't lift the run over them.
Hens get bored so still free ranging at the mo and looking for another solution!
This is a great addition to the eglu and was very easy to fit. The chicks love the extra room. The only downside was that my delivery instructions were not followed and this caused some problems. The product itself is great though.
Very easy to fit, especially with the fab new clips. My girls seem very happy with it also!
It's really good! Adds space and makes me feel more better about leaving them in the run for part of the day.. Great little buy even though you can make your own extension it won't be as good as the real thing!
Same quality as the rest of the original run but because of the size it does feel a bit more flimsy. Functions as it should!
We have a lot of foxes in our area and this has been great to give our girls a bit of extra space.
Hi Omelet, Can you put a side door on these runs? Having a door right at the end of the run makes it impossible to clean the chicken run. Our chicken run is fix to a specific spot as we do not have the luxury of space. Thanks v much! Pei
I bought this as our chickens stay in the run permanently. The extra space makes the run significantly more spacious and it's a good value addition to the eglu. As it's straight and the other pieces of the run are angled, it's a bit of a fiddle to get a good fit, and we did find that we needed to anchor the run to the ground with stones. A few more clips would have been helpful too. But all in all I'm very pleased with this product.
An ideal way to give the hens more space but still hang on to the excellent Eglu.
