Verified Reviews for Eglu Cube Feeder - PurpleBack to Product
Great product! But...the opening is very narrow. Not for roosters or hens with large combs - Shellsbells,
This is a great product and I don't regret purchasing it at all, however I cannot use it for my roosters because their larger combs prevent them from getting their heads into the small opening. The hens seem ok with it, but for the roosters, I had to go a different direction. I understand that most folks only have hens, but for the few who do keep a rooster or two around, this product isn't great for them. I love the protection from the weather, but a larger opening would make this product perfection. :)

Love this feeder - Sophie, Berkshire,
This came as standard with my Eglu Cube and I must admit that I really didn't use it to start with. But I've been using it full-time since investing in a walk-in run for "flockdown", and even my runner duck (who thinks she's a chicken - don't ask!) uses it. Reduces waste hugely (I used to scatter their food) and keeps their layers pellets dry even when the rain is torrential. Cleans pretty easily with a dish brush. I'd definitely recommend these.

Really difficult to get the food in - Helen,
I got one of these with my new Eglu cube and it's no easier to get the food in than the last model. I carry food around in a large plastic jug and it's impossible to pour food into without spilling it. Granted, the food stays dry in there but that's no good if the food won't go into it! You have to unhook it, lay it on its back and then hook it back on. That's no fun in the rain and when you have four henhouses to replenish. I've bought four of the new drinkers instead.

Great rain-proof feeder - South, South Carolina,
I was looking for a rain-proof feeder that hooked onto the fence for a while and couldn't find anything. I came across these and they were just what I was needing. I use them for free choice kelp and oyster shell for my ducks. The ducks can fit their heads inside to get the supplements, and the supplements have not gotten wet even in heavy rain.

Excellent feeder but takes absolutely ages for delivery! - Jason,
Although I got a feeder with the Eglu Cube I purchased I wanted a second feeder for oyster shell. Products are great but I think I could have taken delivery of a custom build car faster than my order being delivered! If you want any Omlet products be prepared for a very long wait!

Best feeder ever - Lizrh, Worcestershire,
I've had chickens and bantams for a few years and get fed up when their round feeders get rained on and the food gets wet and horrid. I've been so pleased with this feeder hanging on the pen wire as the rain - and snow -has not got in, and I've used it for a month. Great design - looks as though it will last too.

I love these feeders - Alexis,
Perfect shape and size - fill it up and it lasts ages - still keeps the food clean and dry - amazing - my girls love it
Great product - Lorraine, Hampshire,
My rescue hens are very happy with their new feeder. As they are intensely interested in anything new in their run, it took them about 5 seconds to eat from it. Really pleased that the design keeps the food dry and difficult for the hens to scatter about.
Excellent - Jasmine,
The feeder is great. Light weight but sturdy, comes off easily to clean and empty, I wasn’t sure my runner ducks would use it but they do and it cuts down on mess. And it looks good.
