The extension is great, the chickens approve of the new remodel and expansion, as a matter of fact they constantly squawk about an pool and jacuzzi now. Thank you.
Gives my 4 chickens just enough extra room that they don't feel cramped. Easy to assemble too.
We love this. It gives our chickens lots of room to run around, look for bugs and things to eat, etc. Even with the 9 ft coop + run, we were able to add this extension and still easily move it all around (we have the run handles as well). It was also pretty easy to set up.
As Mr Fox has been busy lately!! I'm keeping my chickens in unless I can supervise so this gives them some extra space which they love. It's now a 4 metre run, lots of space.
We bought our Cube two years ago. It has held up very well. It protected our chickens through several extended sub-zero cold snaps (we do not have the extra insulating blanket- the box itself plus the birds' body heat was perfectly sufficient). The run has kept our local foxes and coyotes from getting the flock. Best of all it is ZERO maintenance and every part cleans with a garden hose and a little scrubbing.
I really do love everything it does for us. Easy, good space, love cleaning it. Only 1 major problem for me. The wheels are so small i can't move it around the yard unless there is like 3 of us to do it. I wish i could figure out a way to get larger wheels, or logically if it came with bigger wheels.
Omlet Says: Hello there. We are sorry to hear that you have had some difficulty with moving the coop around your yard. It can be a little tricky on uneven ground, but you may find that the Eglu Run Handles will help with this. These are currently out of stock, but please let us know if you would like to place an order.
Best wishes, The Omlet Team
Got the Egglu and love it. Looks good. Took a few hours to assemble (got the extended run). Solid and the seals on the doors are high quality. Only wish there was a bigger hutch to hold more chicks.
We LOVE ALL of our Omlet products. So easy to use and so well made~!
This is my 3rd coop and by far the easiest to take care of. I have 3 hens and they like to free range but I needed to give them a bit more room in the run for the times I need to contain them. This works perfectly! You remove the front panel that has the door and add the extension then put the front panel back on. Now they have more room and it works great!
I really love this coop and wish I had bought this as my first coop. This is the fourth coop I have had. The others were wooden. Some fell apart, were no longer secure, and the last one couldn't be moved when we moved. I bought the longest run and can still move the coop by myself. Just watch the youtube video someone posted about how to do it.
For the cons: The food bowl seems... odd. Not user friendly. I don't use the food bowl but wish I had a second water bowl. I found the website confusing for the run. It's not as big as it appears online. 1 meter is counted under the coop space itself. I do wish this coop was more affordable. That's why it took so long to actually buy it. I just think while it's awesome, it's a bit overpriced. I noticed shipping went up after I purchased it.
It seems secure. I do close the nesting box and front door each night. Overall, it's sturdy, user friendly (minus the food bowl) and easy to move and definitely easier to keep clean.
