We are first time chicken keepers and wanted a coop that was easy to maintain and to access so that my little boy could help to look after our ladies. We chose an Eglu Go in purple - it looks bright and cheery in the garden, can be blasted off in a jiffy with the jet wash and doesn't require the maintenance of keeping red mite at bay like a traditional wooden house would. We bought the 2 metre run to attach to it, which is plenty of room for the ladies for a couple of hours until they go free ranging for the day. It is well made, sturdy and most importantly, fox proof. A brilliant product, I think I just might need another one for some more hens.... :)
Fantastic set up for newbie chicken keepers like myself! I opted for the delivery and set up service, purely for time saving peace of mind! It is easy to keep clean, and my chickens soon settled in, and laid us an egg, getting to us!
This is the second home for our chicken & truthfully, we should have splurged on this the first time. Our chicken was so happy instantly after the move. We're happy too as much easier to clean & allow to roam while protecting from foxes etc.
I had wanted to get an Eglu to replace our old wooden run for a while. When it arrived I was a bit apprehensive about putting it together, but I can honestly say it was a dream to assemble - really easy and possible for me to do on my own despite the interruptions of chickens, children and dog. The coop is really easy to use on a daily basis, and very easy to clean, and the feeding and water containers are much better than the traditional type we had been using as they don't tip or spill. Our two bantams are refusing to lay in it at the moment, but apart from that seem very happy with their new home, and I am delighted with it! It is a good size for a small garden. I am spoilt now and would not go back to the old wooden style coop and run.
Me and my two chickens love there new home. Will be getting two new friends soon.
When I won this it was like a dream come true. It is well made and so easy to clean. Its that good that when I got it my 3 girls actually slept together for the first time and still do to this day. My eldest chicken wouldn't let the 2 new girls sleep in her house so had to build a temporary one. So it just goes to show not only people love ❤ the coop, chickens do too
Once assembled the eglu go is fantastic! It looks good and is the coop is easy to clean. Our chickens love it and we love watching them enjoying their new home.
However, it does need a few improvements in my opinion:
1. The run doesn't easily attach to the coop because of the curved roof, as a result we have slightly scratched the coop trying to put it together.
2. The door to the run is very small! This is mostly a problem when I go in at night to poo pick, I have to try and squeeze through the hole to get to the end of the run (and I'm very petite). I can see it being a real pain in about 6 months time when I have to clean out the whole of the run floor.
The human's love it, the chicken's look like they love it! thanks for a great produce but a little too pricy.
Our girls like the Eglu, and there is plenty of space in the Eglu and run for them to plock about. The Eglu is very easy to maintain - you can remove the tray easily for cleaning purposes. We also purchased the full length cover to keep the run free of rain. Construction takes a little while but is straightforward.
I found the instruction booklet a little confusing, so it took me quite a while to get started on the assembly of the house. However once I worked out which side panel was which and which way round it went... it was pretty straightforward to put together. Give me a piece of furniture to self assemble any day! The run was easy enough to do and the 3 pheasants I have in there are happy enough. It is a very useful addition to my chicken/pheasant paraphernalia. Easy enough to move and use and I like the way the tray can be removed for easy cleaning and how easy it is to open and shut the door...I will be using it for my youngsters in the future.
