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 inside of the large chicken run of the Eglu Cube with a flock of backyard hens 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 your eggs every morning is a daily delight and the Eggport on the side of the 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!

More chickens means more eggs and the Eglu Cube has a spacious yet private nesting booth where up to 3 chickens at a time can lay in comfort. The 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.

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.

The 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.

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.

With the wheels attached simply press down with your foot on the operating levers and push them into the resting notches to raise the chicken run off the ground, then push or pull the hen house into its new position.

A purple Eglu Cube chicken house in a well kept backyard Chickens make a wonderful addition to your backyard

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.

A very good bit of kit - Tony, Hampshire,

A little pricey but ultimately you get what you pay for. Very well constructed and very pleased with the product that has been in use for a month. Provided it lasts it will be a very good investment. Although there is no door at the rear of the run beneath the Eglu, access can be gained by closing the door and removing the rear panel, perch panel and tray. The chickens did tumble rather undignified down the ladder when the door was opened after their first night in the Eglu; however, within 48 hours they had mastered the art of going up and down the ladder. With the previous wooden coop they were used to just jumping in and out.

- Cheryl,

We love our Eglu Cube. It is very solid and well made. The chooks also love their new home.

Worth every penny! - Molly,

My main concerns when purchasing a coop were ventilation, winter warmth and ease of cleaning. After owning this coop for a full hot summer and an unually cold Pennsylvania winter i can say it has been excellent. This coop is so easy to keep clean! The fact that it is actually clean as well as virtually odor free after cleaning is awesome! My chickens are happy and healthy! I love the portability the wheeled base provides. I am very satisfied with my purchase and intend to expand my flock this spring..

Excellent product - Jennifer,

It makes all the difference to be able to move the run so easily.1 small issue is that the run door catches are not as strong and easy to use as the door catch on our old eglu run.

Great Chicken Coop - Jim,

I live in an area surrounded by forests...I've lost chickens to snakes, raccoons, opossums, hawks, foxes and other predators. I've had my two hens in the Eglu Cube Mk2 now for months without any problems. The coop has survived a hurricane (tied it down). I like the engineering and the strength of the coop. Although tedious to put together, I highly recommend, to any backyard chicken owner. The coop will save you a lot of grief...and money (in the long run) while providing an easy on the eyes design that will be a compliment to most any back garden.
