We kept looking for a hutch for our bunny Mr Chippy. We kept coming back to the Eglu Hutch with a 2m run. We are delighted with the purchase and so is Mr Chippy. He would be able to come in the house but it was a risky business with a dog, cat and a puppy. He still comes in but he seems very happy with his hutch. He will bounce up to you for a pat but bounce back into his hutch when he's had enough. It was well worth the investment and we are very happy with the Hutch.
As we are not very hands on we goggled and found a very good you tube video on how to put this together It took a while but we were very pleased with result.
We use it for 3 medium size lop bunnies they seem very happy with their new home.
From a humans point of view it’s very pleasing to look at in the garden easy to clean out.
You have to make sure the hutch is on level ground or the back door sticks won’t open very well how many people have really level lawns well we don’t!
I find the hutch too small to shut at night so leave it open as my bunnies like to play and come out at night natural for bunnies to do.
So won’t shut the door anyway but it handy to shut bunnies in run when cleaning.
In the very cold winter months my lops live indoors.
So won’t be using it all year round.
I do not use the inside hay rack or water bottle as it gets in the way and you can’t see if the water runs out .
All in all I’m very happy with the run and hutch and we plan to get the adjoining tunnels too So our bunnies can run & play.
This is the most well thought out animal enclosure that I have seen. Every pain point I've experienced with other hutches has been addressed. My rabbits are so much happier and healthier since we moved to the omlet rabbit hutch.
I have saved heaps on food and litter since making the switch and my animals have a better quality of life. Wish I had purchased the omlet hutch sooner.
Jinja Rabbit lives loose in the garden, and had access to a hutch if she wanted to shelter. Typically the wooden hutch was rotting and not very cosy when the weather is bad. Jinja liked to chew it too! She really needed something better as we are having wetter and windier weather nowadays.The Eglu Go hutch is perfect for her to hop in and out of whenever she wants to and she seems to like it, often just sitting in the doorway. The only problem really is that there isn't enough room to put a litter tray in the house if the rabbit uses one.....which she does.
The hutch was not too difficult to put together, with the help of the utube video. It would have been easier with 2 people though.The run was a nightmare, and I almost wished I hadn't bought it, as I only really need to shut Jinja in when I go away. The clips are easy to put on, but difficult to get off when you have made a mistake! I couldn't get the hang of the double clips at all!
Overall....a great buy and looks good in the garden too
As we expected the quality of the product is great. The only negative is buying the 3 meter run did add complexity in the installation as there was no clear instructions on installing it and we only worked it out by doing a google search. My recommendation to Omlet is please number each part so that it is clear which part goes ware especially for the run. What was 2 hours took 4 hours due to lack of clear instructions. The rear door does also catch a bit when opening.
Arrived before date first given which was good. Good condition and fairly easy to make up. Very pleased
Misty and Lola absolutely love it! Very happy bunnies.
As with other reviews, it is certainly quite tricky to build. The instructions are not great and a little imagination is required to assemble the run.
The web site photo does not show the run connectors which makes it all look very neat, the reality is that the run is covered in little plastic connectors!
The run is permanently attached to the hutch. We had planned to regularly disconnect the run in order to take the hutch to grand parents to look after the rabbit during holidays. This is far from easy.
The run being fully enclosed and fox proof is great, but it does make catching your rabbit very difficult! Access to the run through the door is quite limited and hard on the knees!
Other than that it looks very stylish and everybody is suitably impressed :-)
Ordered the ego hutch, as we have had a wodden hutch but both rabbits have chewed through it. It is a great hutch rabbits love it.
