5 Out of 5 Stars (Based on 19 reviews)
We purchased this coop about 9 months ago and it's terrific. Works well, cleans easily and will never "rot" like wood. Highly recommended! While initially more expensive than a coop built from scrap materials, the Eglu will last far longer, look better and be easier to clean. Safer for the chickens, too! The low run requires a fair amount of bending over when you want to replace wood chips there, so we're planning to build a longer, taller, enclosed and covered run which will be drier in rainy Seattle.

My 6 ladies have been in their Eglu cube with the extended run for about 6 months now, since they were 3 months old. They love it, I love it, and it's held up perfectly. We have moved the whole shebang around the yard about 5 or 6 times, always successfully. It's easy to keep really clean - with the one caveat that you have to bend down pretty far to get into the pen in order to rake out the end under the coop. If I had tons of money, I'd put the coop part into a human-height run, to make it easier to clear. But the coop itself just washes out with a hose, as do the perches. All in all, I'm delighted. It's well worth the cost to me to be able to get it so clean. I can't imagine that you could get a wood coop anywhere near as clean.
In 30 minutes this morning, I dumped the papers in the poo trays, took a hose to the whole coop, moved the coop to a new spot, replaced the papers, and gave the girls food and fresh water. It could not get any easier. Other people talk about deep litter, mite powders, stinky litter, vermin... I'm not industrious enough to manage a system that nasty. This is easy easy easy, and healthier for my hens.
Love my eglu!

My cube arrived a couple of months ago. My girls love it and so do I. Extremely easy to clean and move around when you want to change the scenery, just pop the wheels down and push. It looks fantastic and makes hen care a breeze. My girls are safe from all critters including the local mountain lion that snoops around.
I bought this Eglu almost a year ago. I find it to be everything promised. I find it very easy to clean. And best of all, It has kept the "girls" safe from the raccoons.
