I am so happy I chose to buy the Eglu Cube for my chickens. I had searched for the perfect coop for months and even considered building my own. I was looking for something that would be easy to clean, well insulated and could be moved around the yard, to limit the damage to our lawn. I stumbled across the Eglu online and had never seen anything like it in the U.S. The assembly was not too difficult, and there were videos online for visual learners like myself. Once the chicks moved in I knew I had made the right decision. It is so easy to clean and move around the yard. I have happy, healthy chickens, that have been well insulated from the elements during the winter. I have had many inquiries about the Eglu Cube from friends and neighbors. Without hesitation I tell them it is money well spent. A perfect coop for an urban flock.
The coop is amazing. But you don't need the run if you also have the fence. Things that would make the coop better would be to have an automatic opener for the outside door & the inside laying door too.
I bought the eglu cube 3 months ago and it is a great product. its super easy to clean with the slide out dropping trays, especially with a pressure washer it only takes me 5 minsto clean out, And the eggport door is super handy to keep the nest box clean ( and saves money ). Also it is really easy to move around the garden. but i found if you are going up a hill it can be a little more challenging, but its usually fine. overall a really good product and worth every penny
My other half brought my girls the Eglu with the 2m run as a Christmas present as the local rats or Red mites had put pay to the last three homes the girls have had.
It took us about 5 hours altogether to essemble it as we kept stopping for hot Chocolate breaks, as you do in the cold. All the parts were there and it fitted together pretty well. We had the same problem with the run clips as other reviewers had mentioned so I did resort to cable tying as well.
We are very happy with the end result and so far so are the girls.
This is my 3rd Omlet chicken house having got fedup with badly made wooden houses and red mite! I like being able to stop hens sleeping in nestbox overnight (clean eggs) and ease of cleaning and being able to hose houses out. Fairly straight forward to construct on my own ( in my 70s) Only problem is getting hens to leave their overcrowded wooden house and move into the Cube! Some hens don't know how well off they are!
In process of putting together the cube, looks lovely & I’m sure my girls will love it just one issue, we purchased the cube without the run as we have a large run, my issue is where do you hang the water & food pots. I was expecting to have some sort of wire fence piece under the cube to hang them on. A little bit disappointed as this is not the case.
As a soon to be first time chicken owner there was never any doubt that I’d have anything other than an Eglu Cube for my first flock of girls. And I couldn’t be happier with my decision - neither could my chicks! It only took them one night before they got the hang of going up to bed on their own; they love it so much they sometimes pop up during the day if they fancy a change of scene! Stylish, easy to put together, it makes me smile every time I catch sight of it through the window! Thank you, Omlet.
My Eglu Cube arrived and on putting it together at the final stage I discovered a part missing. It was just before Christmas but there was an immediate response to my email, followed by a swift discussion and the arrival of the part only a few days later together with some toys as compensation. The Eglu itself is a sturdy and entirely practical affair but the real point of this review is to compliment Eglu on their charming, personal and efficient aftercare which has left me with a warm feeling about the company.
Bought as spares to make cleaning each day easier and quicker. We have been very happy with the cube and the hens seem happy too...
So far I am loving this Eglu, it took a while for me to put together, but mostly because I put it together in stages as I was very busy. Once I got it together it has been great. My chickens realize it keeps them safe and will hang out inside the run even at times when they have the option to run around and free range. I think the real test will be taking apart the run for when we move. But I am pretty sure it won't be hard at all.
