FAQs

We can get your order to you within two days from our Utah or Tennessee distribution facility. We use UPS and FedEx to ship orders and you will receive an email with tracking links once the order has been dispatched.

Your Eglu Cube comes in three boxes, labelled A to C, to be built in alphabetical order. The run and wheels come in additional boxes. Our ‘How to build’ videos will guide you through. It’s a big coop and may take some time, so invite your friends and order pizza in. The result is well worth it!

The Eglu Cube has twin wall insulation that works in a similar way to a flask. The coop retains the heat produced by your chickens to keep them warm in winter, and stops the cold air from penetrating the walls.

Similarly, the insulation will keep the coop cool in the heat. In combination with excellent draft-free ventilation that circulates fresh air throughout the Eglu Cube.

An Extreme Weather Cover is a great addition to add extra protection to your setup for very cold weather. This purpose designed chicken coop cover is filled with a heat trapping recycled material.

For over 15 years, our chicken coops have safeguarded America’s backyard flocks with unmatched protection against predators like hawks, raccoons, coyotes, bobcats and bears.

During this time the Eglu Cube has been updated and improved to be even more resistant to persistent predators like raccoons. The lower half of the run has a smaller mesh pitch, perfectly gauged to prevent raccoon hands from reaching in. All Eglu Cubes now also come with two-step push and twist door locks on the back door and egg port to stop nifty fingers opening the coop.

There is no need to add a hardware cloth to your Eglu Cube.

The size of run you need depends on how many chickens you have, what chickens you have (breed/size/personality), and how much they are allowed to roam free outside the run. Always aim to give your chickens as much space as you can, either by letting them free range in the garden or backyard or by getting a bigger Walk in run attached to the run of your coop. If you're not able to extend further, try moving the coop and run as often as possible or changing the soil or wood chips regularly. If you're having difficulty deciding what run size to get, feel free to contact our customer service team who will be happy to help!

While the Eglu Cube doesn’t have traditional wooden perches, it has specially designed roosting bars with a structured surface and rounded corners where the chickens will sleep comfortably at night.

Roosting bars allow the chickens to grip onto something while they sleep, which makes them feel safe and comfortable. As they climb up into the Cube to roost, they also get the reinforced feeling of being off the ground. 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 removable tray underneath.

The Eglu Cube house is suitable for chicks over the age of 12 weeks. We recommend you remove the roosting bars from inside the coop until the chicks are big enough to perch and walk across the bars safely. The Eglu run is not suitable for chicks under the age of 12 weeks without supervision due to risk of escape and predators. Chicks may struggle with the ladder to begin with while they are small, so you may wish to lift them in and out of the coop yourself, or convert the ladder to a ramp. You should use plenty of bedding in the coop to keep the chicks warm, and change the bedding every few days.

If for any reason you’re unhappy with your Eglu Cube, you can return it to us for a full refund within 180 days if it’s dismantled and packed up in boxes for a courier to collect.

Our worry-free warranty covers free repairs and replacement parts for up to 10 years of your Eglu’s long life, should you experience any defects in the materials or workmanship.

The metal chicken runs are designed to be used outdoors for years to come. However, we recommend that you check the run regularly for signs of corrosion, especially if you live somewhere with extreme weather conditions or close to the sea. Corrosion will occur if the coating has been scratched or scraped for example. If you do see some, remove any loose rust and touch up with a weather resistant paint. If you have covers on your run and experience heavy snowfall it's advised you clear the snow off the roof to avoid the panels being damaged from the weight.

If you buy your Eglu Cube with a run, the Autodoor comes with an integrated mounting bracket to fit the control panel on the mesh of the run. If you buy an Eglu Cube without a run, you will receive a different bracket, so that you can fit the control panel to the side of the Cube house. This bracket can be bought separately here.
Although it might take chickens a few days to get the hang of the ladder, the new and improved ladder grips make sure all chickens will soon have no trouble walking up and down it. If your chickens are having difficulties, or show no interest in using the ladder, place treats on the rungs to encourage them up into the coop.
The partition door can be closed at night if you have a hen who likes to frequent the nest box and make its messy. However, if this is not a problem for you and your hens stay on the roosting bars, the partition door can be kept open.
You don't need to add hay to the roosting bars or droppings tray as they are super easy to wash clean without. However, you should place bedding in the nest box.
Yes, that won’t be a problem. If you want to keep your chicken coop on a slope or in a particularly bumpy area of your garden, we would recommend fastening the run with the Omlet Screw Pegs. These are super easy to just twist into the lawn, thus removing any gaps under the skirt where chickens could possibly escape or predators could get in.
We have not tested the Cube with cats or rabbits so cannot recommend how safe it will be for these pets. Certain features, such as the ladder for rabbits, won't be suitable.
The Eggport door is placed on the left side (when looking at the Cube from the rear door) and cannot be moved.
No, you can move your Eglu Cube without the handles. However, if you have a run that is longer than 3 metres, or if you intend to move it by yourself most of the time, the handles will make it noticeably easier. Please note that the Eglu Run Handles don't come as standard and will have to be purchased separately.
That will be possible, but we do not provide any connection kits for this. If you want to connect your Eglu Cube (with or without run) to your chicken enclosure, we recommend speaking to a DIY specialist to make sure it's done safely.
The stable style run door will need to be placed at the end of the run. If you want easier access to other parts of the run, you can add a Run Door Self Fit Kit at various places on the run.
The Wheel Arm Track Guard fits in the space where the wheel arm moves across to lock when you lift the coop to move it. The wheel arm goes through the comb-like guard, but it prevents any overly curious chickens to put their head through this space. The Wheel Arm Track Guard is included in all Eglu Cube and Eglu Go UP run boxes as standard from July 2021, and if you have an older coop you can buy it here.

Eglu Cube® - Large Chicken Coops with Runs
Indestructible
Candice, Oregon,
I bought this system - the cube with large walk in run - to keep my babies safe from the many many predators we have living in the forest. I didn't even imagine a tree would fall on it! TWICE!! We've had bad storms and twice very large trees have fallen directly on to the cube and run. I heard it both times from in my cabin - it was LOUD! I ran outside and both times NO DAMAGE. No dents on the cube or the run. Not even scratches or bent wire. NOTHING. I will never have another system. As soon as I can afford it, I'm purchasing the Pro. Don't even think twice about investing in this wonderful coop and runs!!
