Now they don’t escape! - Cathy,

The taller run means I can clean them out better

I love my Eglu! - Victoria, Powys,

I bought this nearly 2 years ago, and yes I wanted to give a true review in all seasons and conditions. Firstly its a lovely thing to look at and so easy to clean, it's easy to move around and I had a little trouble with a wheel, customer services immediately sent me not one but a new pair, no quibble. The chickens are warm inside in winter and cool in the summer. I have kept 4 large hens inside and there was good room for them. I love the fox proof (and it really is) skirt around the bottom of the run, we have had numerous fox kills here even with electric fencing but no way with this run!

Brilliant! - David, Notts,

I started keeping hens about 10 years ago, and as I love working with wood I built a lovely coop for my flock. However, as time went on i began to have issues with redmite, and this has become a constant battle. My wooden coop, although lovely to look at, was actually a haven for mites.... the shiplap timber etc gave them so many places to hide, and of course it was a nightmare to keep clean. I recently decided enough was enough and decided to take the plunge and buy and eglu go up. On arrival, unpacking the plastic parts from the boxes if im honest i wondered if i had done the right thing... however, set up was easy and once it was assembled and the hens were safely tucked up in bed i realized what a great bit of kit it is! I cant believe Ive struggled to keep a wooden coop clean all these years.... the eglu is so easy! Have to say within the space of a few days im totally sold, and only wish Id bought one years ago. The old wooden coop is going on the bonfire!

Love! - Amanda, Oklahoma,

The purple is adorable. We purchased for our smaller breeds and it is the sweetest little chicken chateau.

Eglu go up run extension - Nicole,

Bought this coop and extended run I have previously owned both a classic eglu and a cube . Good points are it’s fab too move around on its wheels giving my girls fresh ground to dig in ,easy to clean and better for me to be able to get in to feed and water containers .The design is good but have to say prefer the classic eglu moulded shape it’s seems softer not such sharp looking corners better quality of plastic .It’s a-shame that the classic shape couldn’t have been adapted to be raised up on wheels .The nest box in the go up is very shallow girls don’t like it and will lay on the bars where as the classic was round and deeper almost cuddling them as they lay .I have silkies and the ladder has been a nightmare they refused to use it I have spent 2 weeks having to put them to bed and get them out so I have had to widen with a lid off a large storage box and cover in carpet and put that over the ladder they now put them selves to bed and come down whether they will ever get used to it I don’t know .The feeder is ok but the lid is a real fiddle to put on and get off so I have given up and left it off plus silkies have a Pom Pom on their heads and won’t put their heads in to feed .On reflection I should have stayed with the classic eglu but it’s hard to move around so I will stick with the eglu go up for that reason and may be not have silkies again

This Coop is the Way to GO! - Dory, North Carolina,

We bought this Eglu Go to add to our flock. We know that it will be the perfect home for our new additions this spring. The ease in cleaning these coops is the number one reason why I will never buy another brand. The insulated sides will keep the girls warm and toasty in the winter and cool in the summer heat. The chooks love it almost as much as I do!

Not rodents proof - Estefania, Illinois,

The run was easy to install and it seems sturdy enough; however the run is not rat and mice proof. The gaps between the bars is big enough for rats to go through. So if you have problems with rodents in your area, I don't recommend you to buy this run.

Best thing since sliced bread and an interesting little Condensation Factoid - Dawn,

This coop has been the answer to my dreams - all the descriptions are accurate. As the weather here in the East of England cools, I noticed some condensation on the interior roof, so made a ritual of taking some kitchen towel to use during my cleaning routine in the mornings. I then put the extreme weather blanket on in anticipation of colder weather - and - hey presto - no condensation. We have had frosty mornings, no snow yet, but still no condensation - wonderful

Best little coop - Jennifer, Kansas,

I have had for a few weeks now. I got the coop and no run as I put it in my large run. I got because my prefab wood one I bought in the spring was already falling apart and leaky. I was worried about winter. No longer worried as the coop has been noticeably warmer during cold mornings. My hens took right to it and is so much easier to clean. I put together myself. Will upgrade as I grow my flock.

Nice coop for small chickens - Danielle, Down,

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. Yours, The Omlet Customer Service Team
