Not the best of the Omlet coop range - Celia, Cambs,

I already have an Eglu Cube and a Classic. With an increase in my flock I needed more coop space and ideally without impinging on the footprint. Hence the decision to get a Go Up. The Cube is the best coop, a really deep nest box area and a droppings tray also deep enough to hold some sawdust and still be pulled out without difficulty. The Classic coop has a shallower droppings tray which is irritating and a space for nesting which takes sawdust or hay but is not very large. But it's adequate. Sadly the Go Up has been disappointing. While serving my need for 'off the ground coop', other features are less than adequate. The droppings tray is so shallow that it will only take a very thin layer of sawdust (and no additional newpaper lining) and when pulled out to clean will either pull the roost bars with it or will squash the droppings against the bars making more mess. The nest space is poor. It is extremely shallow and narrow. The shallowness prevents even a small amount of hay or sawdust eing contained ( the hens scatter it while settling down to lay) and the width is not adequate for my medium size hens. All in all I am disappointed but simply have to clean more each day than for the other coops. were I to be starting again and with a larger flock in mind I would have two Cubes on which can be attached the brilliant Autodoor. Having said all this, all Omlet products are made well and the ease of cleaning and reduction of parastites is excellent.

Omlet Says: Hi Celia, Thank you for your feedback. The Eglu Go coop has indeed been designed for smaller flocks, which is why you may notice the differences in dimensions in comparison to the Eglu Cube. We welcome feedback, so your remarks have been passed onto our Product Design team and they will be taken in account for future improvements. Yours, Omlet Customer Service team

Great - An Omleteer,

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!

They work well, but - Adam,

The problem is that the upper door cannot easily open wide because it hits the handle. This could be solved by fixing the handles lower down, but we did our best to follow th einadequate instructions.

Handles ideal for helping move the run - Sarah, Somerset,

I've literally just bought these, having thought about getting them for ages... My advice - don't wait, just buy them - they make moving the run around so much easier. They should come as standard with the housing to save backs! My only criticism is that the wing nut screws could have been a little longer in length to make the task a little easier, but clever DIY hubby managed it.

My hens love it - Elspeth,

I moved from a traditional wooden coop to eglu coop last month. I had problems with the wheel arms fitting properly and can only say Omlet went out of their way to resolve. They sent a variety of parts to solve the issue, all free of charge then arranged free collection of parts again. I haven’t totally resolved the issue but if I take out wheel bearings arms line up fine so I’m going for that solution. Having taken whole run apart and rebuilt 4 times trying to solve the problems I can say these runs are brilliantly designed, no part can be attached in the wrong way and they do come apart if you need to with no problems. I love the mobility of the run. Because it’s winter and wet I am moving my run weekly to prevent too much lawn damage. It’s so easy to clean lower tray, I just line with newspaper and use dog poo bag to pick up hen droppings. I have 3 medium to large hens and it’s just the right size. My hens used to lay all over garden and stables but now out of their own choice they all lay in coop. I’ve played about with best bedding a bit and now have a mixture of a little hay and straw in the nest area, it seems to bed in well and stay put, wood shavings and chips just seemed to blow and scatter everywhere. I would have loved to stretch to the bigger coop but for my household 3 eggs a day are more than enough. I would have liked the option of fitting electric door on the coop but not an option on the go up I see. I never closed coop door on my wooden run just the run door and wondered if hens would adapt which they have done fine. I hope the eglu will give me many years service.

QUALITY!! - Tim,

I bought one coop. Don't know who likes it best, me or the chickens. Bought 3 more coops and moved all my chickens from plywood and chicken wire coops to their Eglu coops. They all think they have died and gone to heaven. Coops are secure from predators, rain, cold, heat, wind; so easy to keep clean!

Delighted with my purchase - Helen,

Easy to clean, easy to move, totally dry and draught proof. It takes a little time to construct but I was doing it on my own. The instructions were good. My girls love it.

Easy to clean - An Omleteer,

This arrived quickly and the pull out, very lightweight poop tray at knee height is a lot easier than reaching down. I got it as I’m pregnant and can’t bend very far to clean them out anymore so needed something off the ground. It takes about 1/3 of the time to clean compared with my old wooden house on the floor with a pull out tray. Plus no mites and very easy to hose down if required. My only issue is that my silkies can’t navigate going up the ladder despite training with corn stuck to the ladder steps with honey and me placing them on there, so I’ve had to put a wooden ramp up to the door.
