Not as good as the reviews make out!

I already have the Eglu Cube and I have been really pleased with how easy it is to clean and maintain. I had a couple of hens that needed a home so bought the Eglu Go. I am so disappointed at how many eggs get broken due to there being no real space/depth to the laying nest area. I have had the Go for about a year now. I have tried everything from filling the whole floor with straw to keep the eggs safe but all the straw gets really messy, no matter how often its changed and still the eggs get broken. The depth of the nest area needs to be deeper so it can be filled properly. A softer landing for the Hen to lay - they stand to deliver! Hence lots of broken eggs. The mud also gets straight into the hen house and laying area, especially with such damp weather we have. No amount of cover keeps the area dry. I have opted to put the hens on rubber chippings and they are now successfully mud free! Just the problem of the broken eggs. So I now take both the trays out and let the hens lay on the soft weed suppressant membrane. Luckily they haven't started to eat the eggs deliberately. Cleaning is a real fiddle as there are too many places for dirt to collect as its hollow construction is made from 2 sides screwed together allowing lots of areas for insects and slugs underneath to hide! So if your thinking of making a purchase and you really want hens then think about the cube- off the ground, less mud in the hen house, great laying area separate from the roosting area, easy to clean - absolutely perfect! The Go will be made redundant. Review for: Eglu Go Chicken Coop with 2m Run Package - Leaf Green
