Easy to use - Graeme,

Good product but be careful using power drill adaptor as its very easy to snap the top off in hard ground

Keeps predators from flipping up the outside skirt - Amy, New York,

These have worked great and are thick plastic so they do not break easily. May take a bit more time to screw into the ground, but I don't need to get my mallet to hammer tent stakes any more. And there's a drill attachment to make screwing these in faster which I haven't used, but I bet it works great too. Keeps predators from digging under the zippi skirts by keeping the skirt pieces tight to the ground.

Beautiful and Convenient, But Not Perfect - Leah,

I want to give a completely honest review on the coop with 6' run, wheels, and handles. I'll start by saying I am quite happy with this, and would recommend it for someone with 3 or fewer birds. It is definitely not perfect though, and it will be up to each individual to decide if the pros outweigh the cons for them. My coop arrived with a couple plastic parts damaged (it was only shipped in a cardboard box with a couple pieces of cardboard to separate certain pieces), and the corner pieces of the run were missing. I noticed these issues at separate times, and customer service was excellent about getting back to me and making sure I received every part I needed. Things I love: -The coop is cute, and roomier than I thought. I am using it without the roosting bars, and my 3 Welsh Harlequin ducks fit in fraction of the space at night. I would even be comfortable with a 4th duck in there. -Once assembled, it is a practical design. The handles and wheels are a must-have. I move the coop and run 1-2x/day and the wheels and handles make it a quick 2-minute task. -The fact that the run is attached and moves as one piece with the coop is just great! -I appreciate that it came with feed/water troughs made to attach to the run. It makes moving it even more convenient. - The plastic is more durable than wood - especially with messy ducks - and is easy to spray off with a hose. - Did I mention it is cute?? Nobody can accuse me of having an ugly coop. - Even though it's a little tricky and time consuming to put together, it's a lifesaver if you aren't handy and are unable to build your own coop/run from scratch. Things I don't love: - Depending on where you live, I recommend taking some extra measures against predators. The back door opens up very easily with a turn of the knob, so I keep it more secure with a string tied from the job to a carabiner which I keep clipped to the run until I need to open the back door. I also added hardware cloth along the sides because certain predators where I live could absolutely try to pull a bird through the bars of the run. - Things just don't quite fit together right. The back door fits unevenly, and the parts of the run do not all fit properly. The run is assembled with plastic clips which easily come off with enough pressure. I had to resort to zip ties for a couple spots where it didnt fit well enough to use the clips even though I was following the clip placement exactly, and have found that if the ground is at all uneven or slanted, several of the clips are at risk of popping off where the pieces of the run try to separate, and I have had to reattach some and add extras around them for reinforcement. This is mainly a problem with the run skirt pieces. The manual for the coop itself shows what I think must be an old run design where each skirt/respective run panel is one solid piece, which would be a much more practical design, as it would be sturdier and have far fewer clips at risk of falling off. - You can pull it easily, but it seems to get stuck if you try to push it. The run skirts extend quite a ways under the edges of the coop where they are not secured to anything, and it seems like if you try to push the run/coop backward sometimes they get caught on the ground there if it is not perfectly even. I have somewhat fixed this issue by lifting the coop as little as possible while moving it. - While I feel like the coop is a fine size as long as you don't plan to leave your birds locked inside it all winter (there is also nowhere to put food or water in it) the run is comparatively small. If you aren't going to let your birds out in a larger area then I would recommend getting the run extensions. I got this with the intention to move it frequently and do not believe it is the type of run that should be left in one place. Overall I do really like this coop and run. It is the only pre-made design of its kind that I could find, and customer service is very responsive when needed. There are some issues such as the run skirts being separate pieces from the side panels (which I feel is a bit of a manufacturing shortcut), and there are some areas that are going to have to be checked frequently to make sure the clips aren't coming off. It seems rather expensive for what you get, but it was still worth it for me to get something already made and not have to figure out how to design it myself. If you are a handier person, you could make something similar with wood and hardware cloth for a fraction of the cost, but it probably wouldn't be as cute, and the sturdy bars of the run are definitely better than hardware cloth alone. I hope this review helps someone decide if it is right for them. I am glad I went with it. It is pretty much just what I was looking for, and I think there are pros and cons of every option out there. The cons of this are worth overlooking to me, but they still exist. I would recommend this to a friend, especially as a first set-up, but would also make sure the know exactly what they're getting into.

Omlet Says: Hi Leah, Thank you for this detailed feedback. We are always looking to improve our products so this will be very helpful for our Product Design team. In regards to the assembly of the run, it is indeed crucial to build everything on a flat ground, as this will ensure that all the panels fit together correctly. The back door also should be even. Usually, if it's not the case, readjusting the supports struts inside the coop should fix the issue. Don't hesitate to contact us by phone or by email for any further assistance. Yours, Omlet Customer Services team

Extra door ? Yes please! - Andrew,

We bought and fitted the first extra door about 5 weeks ago but have yet to fit the second one purchased . An ideal method of accessing the hens to feed, water or just physically move them, without compromising the inherent security afforded by the Omlet base. Not difficult to fit and well designed and easy to operate

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!

These are very excellent for pinning down the skirt

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!

Worth Every Penny!! - Micha, Colorado,

At first we thought these screws were expensive and unnecessary, but after weeks of arduously pulling up tent stakes to move the coop, I decided to purchase the screw pegs. They are a game changer for us and moving the coop is now super easy with the handy dandy drill attachment they include with the screws! I love these so much that I will also be taking a few camping from now on!

Straightforward assembly - Lawrie,

I bought this 2 weeks ago and fitted it within 2 hours. Easier to fit than the Mk1 and very secure. I'm sure it will be just as safe and long lasting. The "stable door " arrangement is a great improvement!
