Really difficult to get the food in - Helen, BERKS,

I got one of these with my new Eglu cube and it's no easier to get the food in than the last model. I carry food around in a large plastic jug and it's impossible to pour food into without spilling it. Granted, the food stays dry in there but that's no good if the food won't go into it! You have to unhook it, lay it on its back and then hook it back on. That's no fun in the rain and when you have four henhouses to replenish. I've bought four of the new drinkers instead.

Ok - Sile, Cambs,

I bought this for just two hens. One is happy to use it, the other doesn't like to, she seems fearful to put her head inside and therefore not be able to see around. It would be better less deep.

The feeder is too deep - Nancy, Cambs,

Pros: convenient, easy to hang on chicken cage, keeps food clean and dry. Cons: the container is too deep and the adult chickens (RIR, and BSL) can’t or will not get the food from the bottom of the feeder. I am using plastic containers in the bottom of the feeder to raise the food level. It is not the best solution but it keeps from wasting a lot of food.

Omlet Says: Hi Nancy, Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your Eglu Cube feeder. We are sorry about what you described regarding the depth of the feeder. In your case, you might want to try to install in on the ground, to see if that makes any difference maybe. Chickens might need some time to adjust to the feeder as well. Nevertheless, your feedback has been transferred to our product design team who will look for further improvements. We stay at your disposal if you wish to forward anything else to us. Best Regards, Clemence Omlet Customer Service team


Fine, but watch overfilling - Rooster, Cambs,

I have one of these as well as the one that comes with the Eglu GoUp, and I only use the one that came with the GoUp any more. I have 5 hens, and if it has 1 1/2 days worth of food, they flick it out of the feeder and it goes on the ground. After a few days, it's a lot of wasted feed. Might be fine as long as you don't overfill, but even when I don't I still get flicked food.

Your feedback has been passed on to our product design team who will study further improvements on this product. In the meantime, if you encounter that issue with your chickens, it is indeed a good advice to not overfill the feeder. We stay at your disposal for any further information.

Not perfect - Jill, Essex,

This feeder attaches securely to the mesh wall and keeps the food dry. But after a few months of use I have identified a few problems: it's quite big and it's impossible to make sure the oldest food is consumed first as you just top it up on top of the oldest food; it is extremely difficult to clip and unclip to empty and clean (Omlet promised me a replacement one in case mine was faulty but this has failed to materialise); and finally, my girls now have damaged feathers on their chests because the edge of the feeder when they put their heads in and out is abrasive. I wondered what was causing it and have now worked it out.
Review for: Feeder for Eglu Go - Leaf Green

Omlet Says: Good afternoon Jill, Thank you for your feedback, we value all reviews as this helps better our product for the future. I am sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your feeder, I would be more than happy to send you a replacement feeder, perhaps the Cube feeder would be more appropriate for you as the edges have been rounded and there is not a lid, which would remove the risk of your chickens damaging their feathers? Please let me know if this would be of benefit to you. Many thanks, Omlet


feed drinker - Alex, Suffolk,

unfortunately had to stop using it because chickens nocked off the grub feeder twice, luckily i was around and could go in and re hang it. sorry but wouldn't buy it again :(
Review for: Feeder Drinker Stand - Eglu Classic & Eglu Cube


The girls won't use it - Andy, Chessire,

Well, it looks like a good idea and they both used to peck at drops on the bottom of the glug but they simply won't drink from the nipples. We showed them how it worked, Suki seemed to work out how it worked but Daphne didn't. We added the old glug back in and they drank like they'd been in the desert. We tried this for a week and it was like some sort of CIA deprivation torture - each time we brought another water source in they drank and drink and drank. Daphne even tried to stretch to drink from the top! So now its almost at ground level and they do drink from the top. As far as our girls are concerned a big thumbs down.

Super glug - An Omleteer,

My chickens dont know how to use it so still only drink from the normal glug, they try to fly and sit on the edge of this.
Review for: Eglu Cube Waterer - Purple


Super glug - An Omleteer,

I bought the super glug thinking my chooks would eventually be learning to use this but i was wrong. We ended up having to lower it down the bars so they could drink from the top, so i regrete buying this product and sould have bought the more simple "glug". The only good side to it is that there it holds alot more water than the ordinary glug,but i don't think it was worth £12.99!
