I bought this about a month ago. Delivery was speedy. My order was sent separately (was kept informed) coop and run was told could come early pegs would be later. Which is great. Didn't need 2 people to build. The run is a little flimsy and felt it wasn't going to be reliable but it's withheld snow and 3 chickens so I'm happy. Would be nice to be able to shut off the nest. It is more expensive than the rest but the coop is great!
The reviewer has 2-4 Wyandottes pets
Love this little coop! It is just perfect for my three hens. I do wish that it came with a partition and nesting bed inside the coop, though. I have had to construct one on my own so the girls can have privacy as they lay eggs.
We got this to move our 4 little chicks outside to the big run/coop area but still have segregation. it worked great. The omlet and 6ft run fit in the big run and we now open the little run so the little girls can do some exploring in the big run and start spending time with the bigger girls. The only thing they didn't seem to like was the floor in the omlet so we cut a piece of cardboard and then added the shavings. The smell of 4 ladies (we're hoping but we think on is a roo) is no longer in my house and everyone is enjoying the outdoors. Thank you
We are loving it! The chickens do also! The only thing we would suggest is some louvres in the back door for more circulation. We got a solar fan and that does the trick
This is an excellent coop; we've had ours 6 years now and it's still in very good condition. Easy to clean and maintain. My only constructive criticism is I wish Omlet would (please!!!) design a piece of sloping connecting kit that allowed you to convert it to the 'UP' (so coop raised off ground level) WITHOUT having to ditch the already expensive ground-floor level 3-meter run we have. I would definitely invest in buying the 'UP' Frame if it came with some 'connector' that made it compatible with the ground-level existing run. Having said all that, the 'GO' is excellent and well worth the initial outlay in my opinion. All of our chickens who have previously, and those who are still living in it, seem very happy and healthy.
Omlet Says: Hi Clare, thank you for your review. I have taken your feedback and have passed it onto our product design team. Please stay tuned to our social media or newsletter to be informed if we launch this concept. Kind regards, Omlet
We have a hen who lost the use of her feet when she was just beginning to lay eggs. She sort of walks on her legs, and we needed a small coop to keep her separated from her flock, some of whom were continuously pecking her neck. She was unable to get up the ramp of the small ramp we tried first, so we purchased this one because she can get in and out as no ramp is needed.
The only negative for this coop is that an automatic door is not available. We have an automatic door on our large coop, and it greatly relieves the anxiety of not locking them up on time, or letting them out at sunrise. But the convenience is now pretty much negated by the need to get our hurt girl locked up and opened up.
We would be so grateful if we could get an automatic door for this coop.
I love the Omlet Go. Easy to assemble and such a doddle to clean it. Only takes five minutes. The run is good too but I had 2 sets of instructions for putting it together. One set with Go instructions and another in run box. Unfortunately I used the the first and I think the run has been changed since they were written. The other instructions were the right ones. I could have saved a lot of time if I'd had the correct instructions or a note explaining.
I absolutely love this chicken coop. It sturdy and well built, provides total protection, is easy to clean and is almost the perfect coop for our silkies. The only complaint I have is the nest box. It is too shallow, and curved so keeping bedding in the nesting area is nearly impossible. Aside from that, we love our coop!
It took a little longer than I thought it would to build, mostly because the ceiling of the run won't slot into the house, as easily as it looks in the instructions. That said we've made it work and the chickens love their home. I'm glad we chose green over purple in the end too. The eglu is great and so easy to maintain.
Our Eglu Go is now 2 years old and still looks brand new. We used to have guinea pigs in it but recently converted it for chickens with the simple, yet highly effective, integrated nesting box and roosting bar set (just £20). We've added an extra 1-metre extension and have the whole thing on hardwood chippings. The hens took to it from Day One and seem very happy. Its easy to clean. We sprinkle the Bokashi Bran (available from Omlet) on their layers pellets and on the droppings tray, which almost completely eliminates the odour and firms up droppings for easy removal into the compost bins. Happy hens, happy me!
My only (constructive) criticism is that I wish Omlet would produce a 'connection kit' (following the slope of the ladder) to allow me to convert this 'Go' to a 'Go UP', using my existing run. The only thing stopping me is the sheer cost of replacing all that perfectly good ground-level run to the taller UP runs. Come on Omlet; please make conversion simpler and cheaper, than I'd do it - and many other customers I reckon.
