Purchased the Eglu Cube with 3m run. Currently have 4 bantams living in luxury. Not sure that I would want many more chooks living in it - perhaps 6 at the most. Took me a couple of days of on and off effort to construct the cube and run largely on my own. Definitely better if you can find someone to help you put it together. The chooks are very happy and settled very quickly. It is an expensive chook house, and you could probably buy a lifetime of eggs for the same price, but if you are keen to keep your own hens and have some cash to play with, the Eglu Cube is an excellent choice. Easy to keep clean, mites won't infest the timber because there isn't any, weather proof, fox proof, and easy to manouver around the garden.
The Cube came well packed as usual.The only real difficulty I had was putting it all together.I employed a man to do this for me and unfortunately he made a mess of it by not following the instructions which he said were difficult.I had to then ask someone else to come,he did it well even after undoing some of the previous work.and he said that it wasn't the easiest job he'd had.Now all up and in use and definitely an improvement on the old Go,I especially like the separate nest boxes as the hens can no longer sleep on the nest.My only personal complaint is the the food box has sharp edges around the openings which make it painful to carry.I do feel that the coop is made better than the earlier ones.
I purchased this after using 2 wooden hutches (which had started to rot after less than 4 years). I love it. It is so easy to clean and I can move it if necessary on my own. The chickens seems so much happier. I wish I had bought one when I first had chickens.
I was worried about plastic but it's so much cleaner than wood!
The ladder is a bit steep and the steps would benefit from being wider! The laying area should be detachable because it still gets dirty even if they don't sleep in it!
We battled with moving a homemade chicken house/run for a few months before I threw in the towel and purchased the Eglu Cube. It happened just when the ban on keeping birds outside happened before Christmas so it was timely that I could move them daily around our garden in their run. It's a clever piece of engineering. It's not quite as easy as it looks in the promotional video to actually move as the handles are low so you have to bend and shove (to overcome ruts in grass) but that aside it works fine. The food and water containers work well and the birds seem happy in their new house!
We bought and Eglu Cube and put it together on a very cold January day. I love the unit. It's easy to use, easy to clean and my 4 girls are warm and dry. I can give 5 stars for the unit without reservation. I posted four our of five stars because the run assembly took four hours and the enclosed clips were fiddley and really difficult to use. We ended up reinforcing the run assembly with standard zip ties. I think if it was assembled with zip ties to begin with it WOD have gone much faster. Over all very satisfied though.
Fantastic addition to our yard. Very easy to clean, the girls love it!
Purchased my new Eglu cube a few weeks ago..all ready and waiting for the arrival of my hens (delays due to bird flu virus)
It has stood in the garden with every weather condition thrown at it from ice ,wind,freezing rain and sun and it still looks bright and is completely dry inside.. I have always had wooden houses and this was something of a considered purchase but I am thrilled with the whole design ,and I know my girls will love it when they come in March..
Extremely happy with the Eglu Cube with 3M run and wheels - it is sturdy and very easy to clean and looks good.
