I needed the help of my husband and kids to put it together, but now our girls have a very nice coop with an automatic door!
It’s easy to clean and keeps them warm and dry.

Have had my Cube since August now and have waited to test it out before reviewing. It was a huge amount of money to spend so I did masses of research but have to say it’s been worth every penny; I love, love my Eglu, and so do my 9 Bantams (you could fit at least 5 more in the cube but only if you have a large run or can free range them). I put the cube together on my own but I was so excited that I took my time. It was easy with the fab instructions and video available and nothing was missing - a great achievement given the number of parts.
The 3m run takes longer to assemble than the Cube but is fine snd is just about manoeuvrable around the garden with one person. I did find that with 9 hens the ground in run gets very quickly trashed so have since bought a 2m x 3m walk in run and then an extension snd am now about to invest in the Omlet fencing so that the girls can free range without trashing my flower beds! Once you have one Omlet product it is addictive. With hindsight I would not have bought the run extension and gone straight for the walk in run as it is quite tricky to try to crawl into the run to clean it etc and my one very minor gripe is that it would be great to have a run access door under the cube as well as at the other end fir ease of putting things into the run at that end too. I did purchase the kit ti put in a new door but have never used it as I got the walk in soon after. Fantastic product, nearly faultless company if only they were still manufactured in the UK. Great customer service. Thank you Omlet. Nearly forgot: one fabulous tip I got from the forum was to put a light inside the house; I did this on the second night snd all the girls went straight to bed!

I love this product. I've upgraded from the Go Up because I've got more chickens. Its robust, fox-proof and looks good in my garden. The chickens especially appreciate the sheltered area under the coop. I found it took longer than I expected to set-up but it is worth it for the extra features in particular the deeper droppings tray and the separate nest box area. I live in a windy place, and it is so solid it doesn't budge even in strong winds. Built to last and easy to clean. Only thing I would change is to consider using part recycled plastic to improve sustainability. Otherwise its awesome.

The cube is probably too big for my 2 bantam hens but chicken maths will kick in and it'll be great to add to the flock. Keeps them nice and warm (tested with a digital thermometer, stayed above zero when it was minus 1/2/3 outside. Easy to clean, open and collect eggs. Its feels safe for them. Only slight issue is rain dripping down through the door turner, but its only at the very front and is because I have a waterproof leading down to that area, Im sure it wouldn't be as bad if the coop was stand alone. I found it was easy to put together by myself, took a while with the stand but feels nice and sturdy. Love that I can add an auto door at a later date.

Oh how I love this coop! I upgraded from the Eglu to give my ladies more space (and perhaps sneak in a couple more) and I’m so impressed with it. It’s really big and incredibly sturdy. We set it up with the automatic door and the coop light and it’s so funny to watch them plodding towards the light at bedtime! There’s a lovely big laying area so they aren’t squabbling over it, and they seem to be warm and toasty at night. It’s so much more straightforward to clean out without having to stoop down. We have ours attached to the walk in run and it’s making chicken keeping an absolute pleasure.

This is my second Cube and third Omlet coop and they are perfect for living on an orchard. The coops themselves are really sturdy and have withstood wind, rain, storms and snow. They keep the chooks warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
They do take a while to put together but this again is testament to their sturdiness.
Omlet is my go to for all my chook related purchases.

Very well made and manufactured that does everything that is promised from opening the boxes, the clear and concise assembly instruction booklet. Most importantly the chickens love it while it keeps them safe and secure in a small domestic garden.
We love this coop. We had another coop prior because I was hesitant to spend this amount of money, BUT I totally regret that. I wish I had just gotten this coop to begin with. It was easy to put together and my girls love this coop. It's got a ton of space for my girls and after we moved them over, my oldest FINALLY started laying eggs. I'm even looking to get another extension and other accessories for them too.
The coop was easy to assemble and move around our yard! We originally assembled this with just the 6 foot run and then later added a walk-in run to give our chickens a larger protected space.
After a break from keeping chickens we were looking for a completely new setup for our new flock. We previously had a large wooden walk in chicken run and initially hesitated over the premium price associated with the Eglu cube.
We are thrilled with the product, it is very well designed and easy to assemble. I find cleaning the cube much easier than my old run and the looks mean it can be placed centrally within the garden without detracting from the surroundings.
