Good coop, shame no auto door - Victoria,

I already have a Go Up and my ladies needed a little more space so I bought this little coop. I assumed it would have an automatic door available as I thought the one omlet make is universal. Sadly this is not the case and there is not one for this coop. This is why k have only given three stars. It’s quite a big deal regarding the safety of my chickens. I hope there is one made soon.

Needs space behind - Jenny,

I bought the Eglu because the wooden coop had become infested with red mite in crevices where the usual spray hadn't reached. The Eglu should minimise the risk of another infestation. It does have nooks & crannies but the outside is very smooth and I'll be spraying the outside. It appears possible to dismantle completely if necessary and the smooth surfaces can easily be cleaned and disinfected. The information does mention the need for an 80cm gap behind but there needs to be a bigger space than this behind the coop, for handling both the roosting tray and the droppings tray separately. The old wooden coop was never smelly because the droppings fell onto hay with sawdust underneath. The Eglu can be very smelly in the morning because the droppings can land on the plastic roosting bars. For daily cleaning I'm using sawdust and for the deeper routine cleaning I've used water and a soft scrubbing brush. The plastic doesn't dry quickly by itself but does dry easily with a towel. The insulation provided by the double walls was effective in the recent record heatwave, when the coop remained relatively cool. I'm confident that it will provide adequate protection in winter. However, for those rare hot summer nights, I couldn't see a designed way of increasing the ventilation, so I opened the doors slightly. The run is secure so this wasn't a problem. My six bantams used to take ages to settle at night because they wanted to snuggle up AND perch. The bedtime routine involved snuggling up until they pushed each other off the perch! The level roosting bars allow them to snuggle without faliing and bedtime is peaceful.

Beautiful coop, difficult to assemble - Jackie,

The coop itself is stunning and so is the run post assembly. However, the coop and the run were full of factory defects we had to fix ourselves. The bar in the center was so large, my husband had to bend it to make it work with the coop. Also, one of the first screws while assembling the coop had to be dremeled because it simply did not fit in the hole it was supposed to screw into. We chose to not send the coop back because it was time sensitive that we had the coop ready for our chickens. Regardless I would recommend it to my friends but I just feel disappointed and a little depressed about it.

Love it - BUT! - Yvonne,

I'm glad that I bought my Eglu Go, but stupidly hadn't realised that it's not quite as easy to clean out as shown! I have put hay on the white tray to make my girls comfortable, most of which falls through into the droppings tray below making it not as simple to clean as described. However, overall I'm pleased - easier to clean than my old wooden coop and more importantly my rescue hens seem to like it.

Over rated - Vicki,

I received my Eglu Go 2 weeks ago and it was downhill since. Spent 2 days trying to get it constructed until I realized it wasn't me. They sent 2 "left" pieces for the front of the run and another piece that was bent. I received the correct pieces about a week later. I didn't get the wheel kit but it's not too difficult to move a few feet to give the girls a new area to forage. The feed and water containers are difficult to get to and I must get on my 66 year old knees to change them out. The cover for the feed dish is hard to snap on, then you can't snap it off, so I had to leave it off then it rained!! I feel the coop and run are too small, also the bedding winds up between the rungs in the coop leaving the nest bare. There is a sun shade included but guess what...sometimes it rains and that sun shade is not nearly big enough to keep them dry.. I covered the run with a clear shower curtain using clothes pins! And why is the sun shade in a dark color? Shouldn't it be a light color to reflect the sun? especially in NC...just saying. I'm getting a different coop next week and this is going back. It's over rated and over priced. The best features are being predator proof and plastic.

Omlet Says: Hi Vicki, Thank you for taking the time to review your Omlet product. We are sorry to read that some parts that were sent to you initially were incorrect. Depending on when you contact us, and how long shipping takes, it can indeed sometimes take a few days until you receive the replacements required. Nevertheless, we can always assist you with this sort of query. We understand that the run of the Eglu Go might not be suitable for everyone. This is why we offer alternatives, such as the Eglu Go UP, which is the elevated version of the Eglu Go, as well as Walk-In runs, offering a larger and higher space. All the dimensions of our coops are indicated on our website, allowing our customers to make an informed decision when navigating our website. The coop should be used mainly for your chickens to rest at night, and we recommend to let them roam outside of their coop during the day. More bedding can be added inside the coop in order to make sure that there is always some in the nesting area. As its name indicates, the sun shade provided is mainly designed to provide some shade for your chickens from the sun. If you are looking for different types of covers, including transparent ones, we would recommend you to have a look at our range of run covers, available on our website. Nevertheless, your comments have been passed on to our Product Design team and they will be reviewed for further improvements. We remain at your disposal for any further information. Best Regards, Omlet Customer Services team


Awesome! - Susan, Alabama,

This thing was put together by my husband, alone. It took him several hours and he said every box had directions and they all varies slightly so he had to undo what he built a few times. I also do not like the fees and water bins. They are too big and deep for smaller chickens. The smaller chickens can perch on the one without a cover and poop in it. So I don’t use those. Other than those issues, this item is amazing and worth every penny. I am so glad we purchased this. Easy to clean and easy to care for my chickens.

Great chicken coop - Danielle,

I have wanted an eglu chicken coop for a few years. But I felt that they were expensive. I recently needed a new coop and run. I found the price was comparable to the equivalent size wooden coop and run. But the quality and ease of build far exceeds the wooden coops.
