I have had the classic Eglu before,now hubby bought me,an Eglu go. A simple stylistic house,so very easy to keep clean,the hens love it and so do I !
If you are new to the fun of chicken keeping make sure you do some reading first. And speak to people who have already had/got chickens.
I bought an eglu because I knew that these products last ages and can be recycled afterwards. Plus they are SO much easier to clean than wooden coops. The dreaded spider mite loves wood. My friend told me that even after going round inside a wooden coop with a blowtorch the mites were still there!
I ordered my eglu during Lockdown MK1 and so it took a while to arrive (understandably). Then there was a delay managing to get the garden ready. So I didn’t get the coop erected til September and I’ve now had my girls 3 weeks (no eggs yet - come on girls! ).
The eglu was reasonably easy to erect with two of us. Our DIY skills are limited but we cooped! The run (2m) took about as long to erect and with the same level of difficulty. The instructions are ok and we did use them.
So would I recommend- YES, wholeheartedly, it makes chicken keeping a doddle.
We got this to move our 4 little chicks outside to the big run/coop area but still have segregation. it worked great. The omlet and 6ft run fit in the big run and we now open the little run so the little girls can do some exploring in the big run and start spending time with the bigger girls. The only thing they didn't seem to like was the floor in the omlet so we cut a piece of cardboard and then added the shavings. The smell of 4 ladies (we're hoping but we think on is a roo) is no longer in my house and everyone is enjoying the outdoors. Thank you
My family and I fell in love with Eglu after going for a neighborhood walk and seeing another family with an Eglu Go Up in their yard. We chatted and fell in love with it. Soon enough our Eglu setup arrived. We copied exactly what we had seen. We now have a Eglu Go Up on one side of our yard, and another Eglu Go 9’ run on the other side. Our chickens love running from one coop to their “day retreat” on the other side of the yard.
I only have 2 backyard chickens from the group I originally had so decided to downsize the massive coop to an Eglu and I can't believe I didn't do it sooner.
It is so easy to clean out and move around the yard. The 2 girls seem a lot happier in it too.
I'd say the best thing about it is how easy it is to keep clean. The slide out drawers are so convenient and hosing them down every day or 2 keeps away flies and the mites I could never get completely rid of in the large wooden coop.
Assembly wasn't too bad either. I did it alone in a couple of hours.
I'm 100% satisfied with the Eglu, I wish I had got it years ago.
We loved the first one so much, we bought another one. Wish we had one for our bunnies. Easy to clean. Pretty easy assembling but does take some time. Would recommend to anyone looking for coops. Well worth the money!!
Very good and sturdy coop. Easy to assemble (although the instructions arren't the easiest to figure out).
The run is sturdy and flexible so great for my 1-4 years old kids to lean on.
You will surely enjoy
I use this coop as a transition coop for new members of my flock, or as a chicken hospital if someone falls ill or needs to be separated. It is very easy to move around and super secure. Great also to use as another open nesting area for chickens looking for a good spot to lay in. A perfect companion coop to my larger Egle Cube.
We are very pleased with our new home for our quail. We can move it easily, daily, and they love being out on the grass. We made a cover to protect them at night which looks very smart !
Excellent product as is usual with Omlet. Only had the large version before but this small one is still really good. Like the design and the fact it is so easy to clean
