Best on the market, but the design could be improved - Emma,

Bought two of these hutches a few years ago and have LOTS of experience using them. The best you can get on the market in terms of keeping piggies warm and giving them lots of nice space and a lasting product, much better than wood, but.... a few gripes! 1. Each little piece of the run has to be attached by dozens and dozens of plastic clickable attachments, which hurt your fingers after a couple of hours of assembly (yes, it will take you an afternoon especially anything bigger than the 1 metre run). The floor of the run comes as a nicely pre-assembled piece, why can't the rest come like that (I assume because none of the rest of the run is square...)? It all feels a little flimsy when you move the run (and hutch because they can't be detached from each other) around the garden to give piggies fresh grass and this can only really be done by two people, otherwise you have to drag the whole thing across the grass and it's heavy! 2. There is no quick release button to detach the hutch from the run, which I just assumed would be standard. This causes a few problems (related to the point above), one of them being that poop and straw get caught in the area just outside the hutch door where it meets the run and the ONLY way you can get rid of this (it goes solid with the piggies feet treading on it all the time) is by crawling into the hutch yourself (cobwebs n all!) and out into the run, easier said than done for some people! 3. The removable base of the hutch doesn't *quite* fit into the top of a wheelie bin, which is absolutely maddening because it means you have to remove the dirty bedding by hand first then chuck the rest into the green wheelie bin and some always spills on top of me (eew). It would just have required a bit more forethought from the designer to make this the perfect size to get into the top of the bin and help all of us owners out. 4. The back door sometime sticks and is difficult to get into place to lock, we can't work out why this is. 5. Nothing is SQUARE!!! I assume this is done on purpose to stop people buying products that aren't Eglu related, but it's quite a drag. If you want to enlarge your piggies property by adding runs that have straight edges, forget it. The Eglu has slanting edges everywhere. We've had so many escapees over the years as they sneak out of the little gaps that are created where the edges of the runs don't meet. 6. If your piggy refuses to return to its hutch (where you can lock it in and catch it from the back door) it will be almost impossible to catch him or her because there's only one door into the run from the front. Unless of course you climb into the run itself. 7. Piggies really dislike walking on the mesh floor, I think it hurts their tiny paws. They always seem to plan their route across to avoid stepping on the wire. I realise this is because rabbits dig, but guinea pigs don't so there's no need for a wire floor... Having said all that, this is the best you can get on the market, I just wish it was better / more simply designed.

Omlet Says: Hi Emma, Thank you for taking the time to share this detailed review. We welcome feedback, so this has been passed on to our Product Design team for them to take into consideration when making any changes to the design and future products. One recommendation that we would give if you wished to have another point of access nearer to the hutch front door would be to add an extra door on the run. More information related to this product can be found here. The issue that you described related to the back door being sticky sounds unusual. Don't hesitate to provide us with more details and photos by email to allow us to try to understand what is happening and resolve this issue with you. In addition, there should not be little gaps as the edges of the run should meet and be secured using the clips, so we would be able to look into this with you as well if you'd like. Finally, to make the ground more confortable, we would recommend ensuring that the underfloor mesh is well buried into the ground. Otherwise, you have the possibility to switch the underfloor mesh for our anti-tunnel skirt. If this possibility would interest you, please contact us and we can assist you with ordering it. Yours, The Omlet Customer Services team


I do like it but - Hannah,

Just received this and it was a nightmare to construct. I remained positive even though hubby was determined to send it back. Once constructed, the hutch and run are sturdy. The whole thing has a quality feel about it. My main gripe is access once the piggies are in. As I don’t possess go go gadget arms, I find it incredibly difficult to move things around or indeed retrieve the piggies from the run. Why, when you spend £350 on a cage, should you expect to pay out again to have another access door. I feel that a second access door should be as standard. That said, overall, I think this is a nice environment for guinea pigs.

Sturdy, however litter gets caught in the track where the base slides in and out - Alison,

We really like the Eglu Go, however it is difficult to reach in and clear the litter/bedding from the far corners of the internal area. This results in the base not always going in far enough, which prevents the back from being able to be closed properly. Everything else is great.

Omlet Says: Hi Alison, Thank you for your feedback, it has been passed on to our Product Design team. One recommendation that we could make would be adding a blanket on top of the tray, as this could reduce the amount of litter going into the corners. Trying different types of litter could also help. The tray has been designed to be entirely removable, which should also ease the cleaning of the hutch. Don't hesitate to contact us should you have any additional questions.

Spare hutch and run - Deirdre,

I bought this as I was unexpectedly getting two new bunnies and I already had two in my walk in Omlet run. I needed to keep the pairs separate but wanted something as big as possible for two rabbits. I used it for a week for this purpose, then one of my other rabbits had to spend time at the vets and recuperating indoors. I decided to split my big run for the others and then let my little one in the Eglu once he was a little better. Now everybody is in the big run and the Eglu is kind of obsolete at the moment. I will definitely use the hutch in the winter and work out where the run works best. The four metres and hutch is long and is murder to clean out unless you like tunnelling on your elbows! I want to buy a second door but they're out of stock. We'll, they're not really out of stock because they're available with the runs as a package. And I don't feel confident cutting a section out to apply the self fit door. At some point I'll probably run a tunnel from the Omlet to the Eglu run and use it as an extension or a spare. For everyday use and cleaning it's just too low unless you buy extra doors for access. I would opt for the walk in run every time. Can't fault that.

Mixed Feelings - Lisa,

I bought this a few weeks ago for our two new guinea pigs. We have a fair amount of wildlife in our garden so I was searching for something that was 'predator / fox' proof. In hindsight, I believe I focused too much on this element and not enough on some other important considerations. Eg. once the house is closed, its completely dark in there.. theres no happy medium its either all or nothing interms of door open or closed. The ability to move the pen around the garden is tricky and the house is really damaging on the grass. Im sure the wheels and handle would help with that somewhat but it still is heavy on the grass. In hindsight, I wish we'd have bought a static hutch and a moveable run for the garden.

Omlet Says: Hi Lisa, Thank you for your feedback. We would like to reassure you in regards to the darkness in the hutch. Guinea pigs are entirely comfortable in complete darkness and appreciate to have a place to hide.These rodents are adept at navigating subterranean networks of tunnels or dense undergrowth and are highly reliant on touch, smell, sound and memory to navigate their hutch in the dark. The hutch and its run can be moved with the help of the wheels, so we would highly recommend for you to add these to your hutch if you are planning to move the structure often. When moving the hutch, it won't be as near to the grass, which should prevent the damage to your grass. If you would prefer to have a separate run, it is possible with our Zippi Run range , availablehere. These runs can also be connected to your existing hutch and run with our Zippi tunnels . Don't hesitate to contact us for any further information. Kind Regards, Clémence, Omlet Customer Services team


So easy to use! - Mel,

I am so pleased I took the plunge and went for this hutch/run combo. It ticks all the boxes for us - coco and haze have the freedom to run in and out all day without me having to worry about them.. we just open the hatch in the morning and shut it last thing at night. The hutch is so easy to clean with the removable tray. The free sun shade is great as it not only protects from sun but also from the rain so I find the girls in the run grazing even when it’s raining. I love that it’s on the floor so I can relax when my boys want to stroke and play with their Guinea pigs and I don’t have to worry about them falling out of their hutch. Cage is easy to manoeuvre onto fresh grass. I just use a dustpan and brush to sweep up the droppings on the grass. A stress free hutch and animal life for us!

Great home - Gary, Yorkshire,

Brought as we have an exposed garden and wanted a home that would last multiple pets. The cage is a bit of a fiddle to build but secure. I wish the double clips were available to buy more of. Easy to clean. The main door can be a bit difficult to open and shut when on longer grass but can't work out why

Sturdy BIG hutch - Alleena, NSW,

I bought one of these to replace the old wooden style hutch for our Guinea Pigs to go inside an existing cage. It was easy to put together and MUCH sturdier than the previous wooden ones. Will definitely buy another one as we have the boys and girls separated

Great hutch - Morag,

Excellent product, my piggies love it! I did find it tricky to build though, some of the instructions were a bit unclear but it is a fabulous product once constructed.
