The cube was very easy to build and all the pieces are good quality.

I bought this coop in the spring of 2020, and absolutely, positively LOVE it! It currently houses 4 medium sized hens, and likely 2-3 more medium sized hens this coming summer. It is so easy to move, clean, and fits well into the style of your yard.
I bought the 6’ run originally, and then a 3’ extender for the run as I like my girls to have more space than recommended. If I get 2-3 more, my preference would be to get the larger walk in run as well.
The predator proofing is proving to be excellent, as we have various birds of prey, fox, skunks, weasels, badgers and cougars nearby who haven’t even attempted a break in.
The girls love their nest box and always lay in it, and the roost area is spacious and comfortable in both Montana summer and winter months.
Even when I expand to a slightly larger flock that will require a larger coop set up, I will always keep this coop as a “back up” to nurse sick or keep broody hens, as well as to introduce new members to my existing flock!
I also want to give a shout out to Omlet’s customer support- they are awesome! I ordered the “Extreme Temperature Jacket” and it wasn’t set to be dispatched until Feb of 2021, and upon emailing them my concern as Montana winters can be harsh and sudden, they promptly shipped it and it arrived in September 2020 as I had hoped.
Excellent coop, excellent company.

I have 4 mini's - a Mom and her 3 foster babies from the feed store. They aren't accepted into my large coop with the 5 big girls so they were living in a large dog crate covered in a horse blanket out in the run-in shed with the horse and donkeys (this is where she decided to go broody). With winter coming to OK, I wanted them in something more secure, warmer and portable. This genius coop answered all my needs.
It took my daughter and I about 6 hours to put it together. Easy to follow directions, but it is painstaking and you need to be exact. Don't assume that you can go out of order...you can not.
The 6' of run is ridiculously sturdy when it is moved, and after about 5" of rain, it has been moved a lot. Not because the rain comes in, the coop and the included cover keeps the girls dry from incoming rain well, but our ground is saturated. Neither my cats nor the dogs can get under the run skirt to bother the girls while they are inside the coop, which means that they are also safe from the coyote that run rampant in my area.
My only complaint is that the included food pan, while large, deep and covered, is a bit too deep for my little girls to get all the way into so I have to keep it very full so they can reach it. It would be nice if you offered a more shallow pan for the smaller breeds.
I have bragged about this coop to everyone I know. While I live on 40 acres and my girls are all free range during the day and only coop at night, I have told all of my suburb and city dwelling friends that this is their answer to having chickens in their backyards. The cost is only slightly above what can be bought at the local feed store and includes the run. The engineering is above and beyond anything else on the market - and you can't beat the shipping cost!

I absolutely LOVE my Eglu Cube! I check for eggs several times a day and the doors provide such easy access. I clean the coop every week and it takes me less than 5 minutes! My chickens love their spacious and sturdy home!
I thought it was ridiculous to spend so much money on a coop set up but we’ve had it for less than a week and I can already say it’s worth every penny.
I go to bed every night knowing my flock is safe, I wake up every morning to clean the coop, which only takes me 5 minutes. I can move it with ease and it looks pretty good in my urban backyard. The flock loves it too. They know they are living in style!
