We bought this to house our 4 chickens which were in an small old wooden coop.
This product is great for easy of access and cleaning, we have reduced our cleaning times by at least half with the pull out drawer and the plastic parts are so easy to wash down.
The chickens seem to be really enjoying their new space and perching bars in the run.
Thank you Omlet for a great design and ease of use. We would definitely recommend this product to anyone with chickens.

I was struggling so bad with keeping our coop clean! Now with our new coop it’s easy to keep the coop clean, the girls safe, and the eggs collected. One day I’ll have a huge walk in run from omlet with multiple coops. For now this is perfect. It held up under 2.5’ of snow and kept my girls warm enough no heater needed.

We love how easy this coop is to clean. We also love being able to move it around to give the chickens new bugs and grass.

Very happy. So easy to clean and move that I clean it out and move it daily. My chickens love it. Takes a while to put it together but it’s worth it. I did a review on YouTube. Zo’s HOMESTEAD ????????
Overall - Omlet Eglu Chicken Coop is a great product, built well, sturdy and comes with everything you will need. Satisfied Customer

I wish I could give this 3.5 stars. In fact, If this was already assembled, I’d likely give it 4-5 stars. But…
Although I knew it would need assembly, I wasn’t prepared for how much time it would take to put together the coop and 9 foot run. I lost track, but it probably took 8-12 hours, with a quarter of the time needing two people involved.
Another downside is that it’s hard to move on muddy or uneven ground. There are no handle bars to lift the run, so you have to grab the wire to move the whole thing. It works to do this, but I worry about how long the plastic joints will last if I move it everyday (which was the point of purchasing this.) Not having a way to lift the run in order to move the whole thing, seems like a significant flaw to me.
Aside from those significant issues, the coop itself seems super sturdy and very functional. It will be much easier to clean than my previous coops and I think my hens will be warmer through winter with this design. Also, a plus for me is that it all looks beautiful when it’s put together, which is very pleasing to me. The rain/sun shade works well and held up against 2 days of big rains and 30-40 mile/hr winds this week.
Overall I’m glad I made the purchase, but I’d hesitate to recommend to someone else without making sure they knew the cons.
P.S. I’d highly recommend getting a perch to put in the run. Without the perch, the run felt a little flimsy, but the perch really helped make the design more solid.

Omlet Says: Hi,
Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback with us.
This is very valuable and our Product Design Team is always open for improvements.
In regards to the ease of moving the coop around with the run, we do offer handles available to purchase, that you can see here.
They can be added on the end side of the run, which may be helpful in your case.
We remain at your disposal for any further information.

My husband and I got tired to trying to build our own coop out of materials that we had on hand and were a little hesitant about buying the Omlet due to it's price point. That's a lot of money for our chickens!! OMG. We absolutely love it and our chickens are so obviously happier now that they have this home. It was easy to assemble, the instructions were easy to follow and the total construction of it is so well thought out and wonderful. I'm surprised by how much I totally adore our Eglu and it's so worth it. No regrets on this purchase at all!

Great coop and run. I now have happy hens.
Delivered very quickly, this is a high quality product - we feel that our chickens are safe and enjoying their environment.
Assembly wasn't quite as simple as illustrated by the young lady in the video, who is working on a nice, clean, flat interior surface (and the paper instructions had a minor error). Even with the wheels option (which give one the ability to move this unit), it needs to be made outside and relatively close to its final destination (if you have gates to pass through, make certain you're on the right side of them!).
Everything works exactly as promised, although I'm wondering how long the doors to my enclosure will last on the plastic clip hinges provided (I have no spare ones to replace these once they eventually break/wear out).

I love this coop and my girls do too. My Maran, Alisha, struts up that ladder like she's a beauty queen. Given the price and availability of lumber, I consider the Eglu a bargain. I see myself having an Eglu village someday.

Every bit as good as I had hoped. Strong, lovely colour and the chickens are very happy. Easy to assemble, easy to clean and looks like red mite problems are all sorted. Bliss!
