Canberra has just finished an extremely bitter Winter, down to minus 8 and quite a bit of snow but my "girls" have been very happy and productive through it all. Thoroughly recommend Eglu to anyone who cares about their productive friends. Peter Rudd Canberra
We are thrilled with our Eglu Go in purple!!! A friend had one in England when we visited and we badly wanted to bring one home with us, but we didnt have the room! It was great to find a supplier here in Oz!
With two little boys it is easy to keep clean and makes keeping chickens fun!!!! Thank you for bringing these wonderful coops to Australia!
Omlet Says: Fantastic!
We've had our Egly Go for about three months now. I really like it! Initially it was a bit of a faff to put together but since then we've had no problems. It's a decent size for the chickens if they need to be locked in (though usually given the run of the garden), and the plastic is really easy to keep clean; being able to remove the bottom tray from the coop is great.
Unfortunately we've found out the hard way that we do have foxes here, but when the gate on the run and the door to the coop are shut at night we've had no problems.
Finally, the cost is good - unusual to have something available cheaper in Australia than the UK!
This chicken coop has to be the easiest way to look after any animal! The chooks are safe and warm at night, and the whole thing is so easy to clean - just spray it out with a hose. There's no smell, it's compact and pretty, so I don't feel embarrassed having it in the back garden - not at all how I imagined keeping chickens would be!
Omlet Says: Perfect :)
Instead of spending lots of money on this product and then having to put ugly chicken wire on it i would like it see have smaller holes so snakes cant get in other then this it is a great product
Love it! It was ( I thought) expensive. But, crikey, has made my life so much easier. Money totally well spent. My Annie is so much safer from Mr Big Bad Fox (although knowing how persistent they are I never get complacent) and SO much easier to keep her house clean!! Amazing how many people I speak to now have got an Eglu too! We have the Eglu Go and would highly recommend. Delivery always prompt too.
Easy to use and clean. Great delivery and installation.
It works, it is solid and moves as one piece to keep the grass fresh. lying straight on the grass I move it about once a week and the grass grows back in spring and summer. I'll be setting up a winter solution on wood chips. I'm told chickens prefer going up to roost but they seems perfectly happy with this ground level product. It is well made, easy to clean and I feel confident to leave the coop door open because the anti-fox run is so solid - this means I am not tied daily to looking after the hens and can go away for the weekend after making sure they have adequate supplies. I lay newspaper on the bottom tray and change it every three days with three hens. Put this in the compost bin with cardboard your junk mail and, grass clippings to make hot and quick compost. I hose down the top tray once a week. At most, all of this is 30 minutes maintenance a week to keep the hens healthy and happy and to keep me in eggs. I bought a cheap tarp and bungee set to give extra bad weather protection and shade depending on forecast. All a bit pricey in the short term but will last an age and will keep the hens safe without constant attention.
Looks smart, easy to clean and the girls are very happy to head off to bed in the evening. I feel confident they are safe, sound and comfortable.
