The slide out dropping tray makes cleaning simple The slide out dropping tray makes cleaning simple

The Eglu Cube makes light work of the weekly clean. Inside chickens have a large roosting area fitted with a slatted floor. All the droppings fall through the slats onto the new larger slide out dropping tray, which can then be simply emptied onto the compost heap. Remove the back panel and you can also remove the nesting box, roosting bars and partition for cleaning. In less than 5 minutes (Watch our video) you can have your chickens coop spotlessly clean.

The Eglu Cube is low maintenance too. Unlike wooden housing, you do not need to treat your Eglu Cube - saving you time and money. Made from energy efficient polymers using modern construction techniques, the Eglu Cube will last for years and at the end of its life can be 100% recycled.

The run is made of steel weld mesh and has a unique anti-tunnel skirt to keep your hens safe The run is made of steel weld mesh and has a unique anti-tunnel skirt to keep your hens safe

The Eglu Cube is a really secure chicken house. The 6ft run is made from strong steel weld mesh, impossible for predators to break. A unique anti-tunnel skirt sits flat on the ground and prevents animals from digging in. The run has spacious vertical sides and gives your chickens plenty of room. The Eglu can be positioned on grass or any other surface such as wood chippings or rough ground where the chickens can rummage.

The unique tunnel-proof panels have been proven in rigorous testing to be predator resistant. The run means that when you are out and about you can be sure that your chickens are safe. The dark green PPE coating is fused to the metal wires ensuring an extremely durable finish that looks great. The standard 6ft run is suitable for up to 6 chickens. The run can be extended in approx 3ft lengths to suit your requirements allowing you to keep up to 10 chickens.

Collect fresh eggs using the Eggport

Collecting Eggs using the Eggport

Collecting your eggs every morning is a daily delight and the Eggport on the side of the new Eglu Cube means it couldn’t be any more convenient. You can get up to 12 eggs per week from 2 hens so if you have a large flock you’ll have plenty of eggs for cakes, Sunday brunch and Omlets!

A snug nest box with sliding door

More chickens means more eggs and the new Eglu Cube has a spacious yet private nesting booth where up to 3 chickens at a time can lay in comfort. The new partition has a sliding door that you can use to close the nest at night to stop hens roosting in there.

A spacious and comfortable interior

The roosting bars are designed for maximum comfort for your hens when they are perching at night. Unlike houses with a single roosting bar there’s no danger of injury for larger, older or recovering hens from jumping up or down from the perch. In addition the roosting bars let all the droppings fall through to the tray underneath keeping the floor that the hens walk on cleaner. The bars can also be simply lifted out for cleaning.

Letting your chickens out in the morning or securing the new Eglu Cube at night couldn’t be simpler. Using the handle on top of the Cube you simply lift and twist to open and close the door in one convenient motion. The action of pushing the handle down locks the door. No fiddly catches or bolts that don't line up.

When your Omlet Auto Door arrives all you need to do is attach it with four bolts. Sign up for the newsletter to be the first to hear about it.

A stable style run door lets you top-up food and drink or let your chickens out to free-range A stable style run door lets you top-up food and drink or let your chickens out to free-range

The new Eglu Cube run has a stable-style door. The top and bottom open independently from one another, and both have run pins to secure them into a closed or open position. Keep the bottom door closed when you open the top door so that you can refill the feeder and drinker without your hens nipping out and into the garden. Open the bottom door when you want to let your hens out to have some free ranging time.

Add run extensions to your Eglu Cube to give your hens more space Add run extensions to your Eglu Cube to give your hens more space.

You can give your chickens even more space by adding a run extension to your Eglu Cube. It is made of the same strong steel weld mesh with a durable coating and anti tunnel skirting. Each extension comes as three panels - two sides and a roof as well as a support arch made of coated steel tube. Each run extension adds approximately 3ft to the length of the run. Alternatively you can give your chickens even more secure space with one of Omlet’s matching and very popular Walk in Runs.

The Eglu Cube chicken house in a garden. Chickens make a wonderful addition to your garden.

Ideally your garden should have a fence all the way round. This will prevent your chickens from wandering into the neighbours garden and, more importantly, ensure that all the eggs are laid on your side of the fence! The fence should be about 1.5m (5ft) high.

If you do not have grass, it is possible to keep a couple of chickens but you must provide them with a layer of wood chippings to rummage about in as this will give them the right type of surface underfoot.

Fantastic - Terese,

Grandchildren love their new eglu Cube and looking after their chickens.

Fantastic Coop - definitely worth investing in - Kasia,

I have tried home made wooden coops, Rubbermaid plastic type large shed just like on you tube which I modified to suit and a metal walk in shed. It took me 2 years to finally decide to buy the Eglu. By far, this Eglu Cube Mk 2 (no run, no wheels) has been the best coop so far. I've had it about 5 weeks now. I have 8 chickens (4 Australorps, 1 Isa Brown, 2 Hyline Browns, 1 Aurucana) The set up took a while (2 1/2 hours) and it helps to have 2 people but not impossible with one person. The only CON I found is in the set up. You have to take your time and be precise with screwing in the screws. I almost finished and got to my second last screw installing the square metal roof plate which joins the 2 roof panels together, when the screw burred and now it's stuck. Can't get screw out or further in. There are 4 screw holes in this roof plate, so I managed to get 3 screws in successfully and 1 quarter of the way in. I contacted Omlet Australia who contacted Omlet UK who said it was my user error burring the screw and that it won't affect the water seal or functionality of the coop. They said there is a thick rubber seal that sits between the 2 roof panels and as long as you have most of the screws in, it will still be ok. I did a water test and put a couple of buckets over the roof from the outside to check for leaks and surprisingly it is water tight. Whilst I'm not happy about having a burred screw, there is nothing I can do about it. So please take your time to line up your panels and screws before you screw them in and go slow and gentle. Other than the small hiccup with my burred screw during set up, everything about this coop is amazing. It is very easy and quick to clean, the poo just drops down through the slats no problem, I haven't found it to get stuck on the slats. The chickens look comfortable sitting on the slats. The nest area is great, enough room for 3 chickens at a time and I have seen 3 in there comfortably. I haven't had to use the sliding nest door as my chickens don't sleep in the nest luckily but it's good that there is a door if needed. I was worried there would't be enough room for all my chickens inside as they are all full size and the inside area does look small, but all 8 chickens sleep comfortably inside huddled together for warmth and there is still room for 2 more chickens which would be squishy but still enough room for them to turn or move around to get comfortable, but I wouldn't put any more than 10. I'm actually very surprised for the size that it is actually enough room. The ladder is great and the chickens haven't had problems going up/down, even my Aurucana who has deformed feet has no problem using the ladder. The functionality and use of this coop is very user friendly. Checking for eggs is so easy and removing the poo tray or the back panel is easy too and makes cleaning a breeze. I just hose it down and if it's cold I'll wipe it dry, otherwise leave to air dry before putting tray back in. My chickens took about 1 day to get used to going into it. I did have to put them inside myself the first night, but I think that would be for any coop. After that they took to it no problem. They seem to be very happy and comfortable. I think it's warm enough in the colder weather and I sometimes close the door when it gets windy at night. The main door is easy to open/close. I'll be waiting to see how the Cube performs in hot weather but I think there is enough ventilation in there. Siting it in the shade during hot weather will help. Overall, I am very very satisfied with the Cube and the customer service and think it's money well spent even though it cost me $919 (including delivery NSW to Melbourne VIC) It was delivered overnight which I was impressed with. This Cube could just win on the fact of how super easy it is to maintain and clean as cleaning the coop is the main and most important and frustrating part of keeping chickens.

Fantastic! - Mark, New South Wales,

We have been procrastinating on having chickens for years, and on finally making the decision to extend our family with 6 chickens, we got the Eglu Cube. We are now 2 weeks in and are extremely happy. Our chickens are only 6 weeks old, and already have organised themselves nicely. They put themselves to bed at night, climbing up the ladder at sunset, and we can easily close the door and "tuck them in". Cleaning has also been a breeze. The thing I like the most is that we have moved the Cube a few times already to different parts of the yard, so the girls get access to different parts of the garden when we cant be there, and no one spot will end up completely bare of grass. Thank you for such a wonderful product. We are looking forward to the next few months as they grow, and to our first eggs.

Pleased so far - Nihad,

I've noticed there are no reviews for the new Cube, so here goes! For many years, we've happily used the Eglu Classic and Eglu Go, but decided it was time for an upgrade. Our new addition is far more spacious than the other 2, and being raised, will undoubtedly be easier on the back to clean and retrieve eggs. The Cube takes significantly longer to put together - but that only adds to the sense of accomplishment at the end! Instructions are generally quite good, and thankfully, a few extra screws, clips, etc are included. The build quality far exceeds that of the Eglu Go, but falls just short of the seemingly indestructible Eglu Classic. We've always had issues with hens sleeping in the laying area, so the sliding door preventing access at night is very welcome. And I can't describe how excited I am about the automatic door opener due out in spring! The height of the run is perfect for young children to walk around in - and even a determined adult if you mind your head (and feet at the threshold). I was disappointed to find no accessories specifically for the new Cube available at launch - namely, the various run covers and winter jacket. I've gone with run covers designed for the original Cube, which obviously work, but extend further down the sides than they would on the original. Overall though, we're very happy with the product. Just waiting for our new hens to move in, but I'm sure they'll agree.

My chickens live better than I do! - Mark,

Overall we are very happy with the Cube, which was an upgrade from our Go UP necessitated by a slight population explosion among our hens. The accommodation is cosy, secure and relatively easy to maintain. Positioning on flat ground appears to be important in order for the roof to fit properly and I my hens would appreciate something to cover the non-stick surface of the ladder runs but aside from that the chooks are very happy. Well recommended!
