Great coop. Haven’t used it yet as chicks are still too small. Great instructions and easy to put together

Five years ago I brought home 3 baby chicks and they lived in the brooder in my garage while my husband built a coop. I looked at buying the Eglu then but Hubby was determined to build the coop himself.We are now building a new house and cannot take the old coop with us-I immediately ordered the Eglu.I can easily move it so the chickens get new grass to nibble on while I can clean the coop.The coop has been out in the rain but the chickens and their food stayed dry.I love everything about the Eglu! My chickens look happy as well.

I purchased the mobile coop to have an option for my chickens to take turns being able to move them around
On 1 1/2 acres right now I have them working in the garden getting it ready for spring. I love it and they do too! Very well built and top quality materials. I was able to put it together pretty much by myself with just a little help from the husband!!

We have had our Eglu MK II coop with the 9' run for about 2 months and have loved it. It was relatively easy to assemble - I would take their instructional advice and conduct the assembly on a flat surface with a helper, but one person can do it. It's very functional (great for the chickens) and easy to clean (great for me). Our chickens were walking into the run at dusk and into the coop itself at dark without encouragement by the second day. I haven't come up with the perfect solution to latching the run doors (the coop door is a no-brainer and the automatic open/close door accessory is handy), but the whole unit allows for a lot of flexibility in terms of how you add or subtract parts and features. All in all a great product!

Got it together. Now waiting on chicks! I am planing on 6 hens.

The Eglu Cube has been great! It's a bit pricey but I'm finding the convenience is worth it. I love the slide-out droppings tray and how easy it is to clean the whole coop. The hens are a small breed and the coop holds all twelve comfortably. They pile up together and there's still plenty space available. We've had some below freezing temps and the girls seem just fine. The space holds their body heat well. Moving it is a breeze and I can do it on my own. I like that the auto door fits it seamlessly. Two minor issues, though - 1) the steps leading into the coop are slick and my hens have a hard time gripping them, along with the interval being too widely spaced for short legs. Most of them leap from the ground to the top few steps and flap inside before losing footing. The other is the run door "lock". The pin that holds the run door shut is loose and easy to remove. In an area with nimble-fingered raccoons, like mine, these could potentially be inadequate. As a precaution, I've put locking carabiners on the door to make it more difficult for them. So glad to have this coop! I'd definitely get another one!

I purchased the Eglu Cube Large Chicken Coop and I am so happy that I did. The coop is so easy to clean. The chickens are safe with no chance of a predator attacking them when they are roosting with the door closed. My husband later purchased the automatic door for me. When a coyote was found in the yard, I have had no worries. The chickens have been safe. This coop is the best!

I bought this coop in August after spending years looking at them ! i had a windfall so decided to go for it. I am so glad I did.. It is very easy to keep clean, it comes up like new every time, despite getting muddy with the wet weather.. I clean the bars and tray every week or so with a small amount of disinfectant as well as some washing up liquid. I keep a special brush/sponge and bucket for chicken cleaning. Now the weather is cold I dry everything off with paper towel -in Summer it all dried in the sun.
A good tip from another Cube user is to put newspaper in the droppings tray every day. It is easy to roll up and put into the black bin. now the weather is cold I am putting more paper for a bit of insulation. i bought the cosy cover too and they seem fine.
Now they are in lockdown because of Bird Flu I give them a cabbage 'pinata' hung from the top of the run, which they love. It gives them some fresh food and excercise jumping up! Also on cold mornings they have some of their food mixed with hot water like a porridge and I add some tinned sweet corn or dried meal worms for a treat.
Great coop for an urban setting, easy to move and blends into the yard.
I wish I knew about Omlet when I bought my first coop. I bought this to replace a wooden coop I purchased for about half the price. This is more expensive but worth the money. Easy to clean, assemble, and it’s secure. This is definitely a high quality coop for a small flock.
