4.5 Out of 5 Stars (Based on 65 reviews)
I purchased my go up before our winter. We have very snowy winters. I live in the Northeast US and before the up I saw rodent evidence under my go. I got the no more road and evidence my girls love being up off of the ground and very little snow got into their coop. Love love love!

I am very pleased with the wheel set
It took longer to put up than stated because I was on my own. Good quality materials. I was thinking of purchasing an extra metre run, but I am a bit hesitant because I think it might be a bit unstable ( sort of bendy) with the extra weight, I would need to talk to someone first. Once up it was very easy to move which was the main reason for buying it.
Makes for such easy cleaning and mobile, had been looking at getting chickens for over a year, when this product came out it swung my decision - i got some!
We are happy that our chickens are secure in this run. It is unweildy to move and could do with something to keep the run rigid. We would also like perches in the run. However we are happy enough to buy another extension should we need it.
I was really looking forward to my eglu arriveing, it gradually arrived over the course of about a week, but I didnt realise that having paid all that money I would have to build it, Im sorry but I found it very tedious. Also after being locked down in it for 4 days the chickens decamped to there other house I think they find the ladder uncomfortable to walk down and the ribbed nature of the base of the eglu uncomfortable. I thought that I would be able to move the eglu around easily but this requires 3 people and the structure of the run is not very robust.however I will try again to like the eglu
An excellent product …. enables me to move the eglu and run every couple of days without having to rely on anyone.
Having the eglu off the ground also gives the hens extra space and a snug area in which to shelter from adverse weather conditons!
Bought this with the 1m extension back in march. Delivery time from order was approximately 1 month but we were told of this with in a day or two of the order which was fine.
The gentleman who delivered it was professional and assembled it efficiently. He gave us a brief talk over how to handle and look after the three cooks we also bought and then left us to it. Whole thing took approximately 1.5hrs.
The coop is lovely and easy to clean. We ended up getting a Walk in run as although they say you can fit 3 in the Up and run, it was a bit cramped and difficult to clean. It was especially hard trying to get hold of the chickens at first as you can't really get inside the run. The WIR has made it much easier and more sociable.
The chickens have been fantastic but it has been a steep learning curve and its amazing how much you can spend on trying to keep them happy and healthy. They also poo FAR more than I ever expected.
We've settled into a good cleaning routine of cleaning the bars twice a week and then giving the whole thing a good clear out once a month. Whilst you can just slide the bottom drawer out to empty the droppings, my chickens don't seem to understand that their poo is supposed to drop between the bars. We end up scrubbing both the tray and the bars at each clean.
If I were to buy again then I would probably buy the Cube rather than the UP as it has a separate nesting area (the hens like to poo in their nesting box which means the eggs need a good clean) and Im already wishing I had more room for a few more hens. It really is addictive!
My entire package has been a great success, the chickens are producing four eggs now after just five weeks. They seem very happy and i try to let them go free range when I am able to supervise them. Unfortunately we are inundated with foxes and we have red kites so are not safe untended.
