I love it the mobility and light weight. I have been using it as a way to clear new garden beds of grass and weeds as well as fertilizing the soil. Besides the chickens are never short on bugs and are entertained with their new surroundings.
Does what it says on the tin. Easy to fit - managed it on my own in a couple of hours but if I'd had help it would have been a lot quicker! Nothing wrong with the product, but having the extra 1m on the Eglu Go Up does make it harder to move around the garden (but that's because I have a small new build type garden and the strength of a kitten.... :-)
It was easy and quite quick to extend our existing run and it’s great for them to have more space when we are not around. Really pleased
We built our coop with te extension fist because we wanted to give our new chickies the room to move freely. I think it gives them as much inside room whilst still giving the full protection from the outside predators. Where we live, a hawk (and has) come to swoop in even while we are outside in the yard.
When we got our basic Go Up we realised that the area of run would only be about 2 sq.m. and a run extension would give the hens 50% more space. The extension kit was an obvious choice, despite the fact that we could have made something cheaply from chicken wire. The Go Up Run Extension is not cheap, but it is a good quality item and fits perfectly to the basic Go Up run. We had no trouble fitting it, and I would absolutely recommend it without reservation.
We found that the sides could flex a little more than we wanted, so we cut a length of wood to fit, cut notches at each end, and fitted it as a perch in the mid point of the run. This really braces the whole thing, and the girls spend a lot of time up on the perch, watching the world go by.
We have no criticism about the extension, and it is well worth the investment. Our only difficulty is getting inside to clean the run, but we will train our children to do this chore....... !
Bought this as unfortunately can’t let my girls out to run freely unless I’m in the garden to supervise. Makes a big difference to the area they have to run around in and quite simple to put together
Fab. The girls love it. Especially the new swing!
Only drawback we've come across is that the girls sometimes sleep in the nest - this can lead to early-morning eggs getting dirty. The little side door is a great addition|!
Very pleased with product , unfortunately no chickens yet due to bird flu but we are hoping to purchase at the end of February ,warrens and novo browns . I will send photos when available . Thank you
Easy to fit and I can still move my run single handed. Totally fox proof so far (there are even paw prints on the back of the house). Basic run is far to small for my three, this is more of an essential than an extra.
