Eglu go up run extension
20 April 2022
Bought this coop and extended run I have previously owned both a classic eglu and a cube . Good points are it’s fab too move around on its wheels giving my girls fresh ground to dig in ,easy to clean and better for me to be able to get in to feed and water containers .The design is good but have to say prefer the classic eglu moulded shape it’s seems softer not such sharp looking corners better quality of plastic .It’s a-shame that the classic shape couldn’t have been adapted to be raised up on wheels .The nest box in the go up is very shallow girls don’t like it and will lay on the bars where as the classic was round and deeper almost cuddling them as they lay .I have silkies and the ladder has been a nightmare they refused to use it I have spent 2 weeks having to put them to bed and get them out so I have had to widen with a lid off a large storage box and cover in carpet and put that over the ladder they now put them selves to bed and come down whether they will ever get used to it I don’t know .The feeder is ok but the lid is a real fiddle to put on and get off so I have given up and left it off plus silkies have a Pom Pom on their heads and won’t put their heads in to feed .On reflection I should have stayed with the classic eglu but it’s hard to move around so I will stick with the eglu go up for that reason and may be not have silkies again

Not the best of the Omlet coop range
12 March 2022
I already have an Eglu Cube and a Classic. With an increase in my flock I needed more coop space and ideally without impinging on the footprint. Hence the decision to get a Go Up. The Cube is the best coop, a really deep nest box area and a droppings tray also deep enough to hold some sawdust and still be pulled out without difficulty. The Classic coop has a shallower droppings tray which is irritating and a space for nesting which takes sawdust or hay but is not very large. But it's adequate. Sadly the Go Up has been disappointing. While serving my need for 'off the ground coop', other features are less than adequate. The droppings tray is so shallow that it will only take a very thin layer of sawdust (and no additional newpaper lining) and when pulled out to clean will either pull the roost bars with it or will squash the droppings against the bars making more mess. The nest space is poor. It is extremely shallow and narrow. The shallowness prevents even a small amount of hay or sawdust eing contained ( the hens scatter it while settling down to lay) and the width is not adequate for my medium size hens. All in all I am disappointed but simply have to clean more each day than for the other coops. were I to be starting again and with a larger flock in mind I would have two Cubes on which can be attached the brilliant Autodoor. Having said all this, all Omlet products are made well and the ease of cleaning and reduction of parastites is excellent. Review for: Eglu Go UP Chicken Coop with Accessories - Leaf Green

Thank you for your feedback.
The Eglu Go coop has indeed been designed for smaller flocks, which is why you may notice the differences in dimensions in comparison to the Eglu Cube.
We welcome feedback, so your remarks have been passed onto our Product Design team and they will be taken in account for future improvements.

Not rodents proof
18 November 2021
The run was easy to install and it seems sturdy enough; however the run is not rat and mice proof. The gaps between the bars is big enough for rats to go through. So if you have problems with rodents in your area, I don't recommend you to buy this run. Review for: 6ft Run for Eglu Go UP with Shade

Difficult to assemble
12 September 2021
I have basically given up on trying to get the coop and run assembled. I bought another coop. I thought this coop was for 3-4 chickens. It seems much too small. I haven’t gotten my chickens yet. Review for: Eglu Go UP Chicken Coop with 6ft Run and Wheels Package - Leaf Green

Eglu Go up
28 August 2021
I bought an Eglu Cube last year for 4 hens. It's a great product seems well made and well designed. My flock grew, didn't fit in the Cube, so I thought I'd add a Go Up. I have 2 complaints about it. The first is that the nest space is quite shallow. Tje birds don't care, but the nesting material is lost a minute or 2 after they get in. My second complaint is that the Eglu line isn't modularized. It would be great to save a little space and all the birds in a flock bigger than 3 could roost together. birds could Review for: Eglu Go UP Chicken Coop with 6ft Run Package - Leaf Green

Overall pleased - not as solid or well finished as classic eglu
8 March 2019
Not my first eglu and had high hopes having been impressed with my two previous classic eglus. Needed something bigger and went for the Go Up. Easy to put together and pleased with how the run and house fit together but disappointed with how rickety it feels e.g. the rear door misaligns easily preventing closure and also isn’t hinged so falls off easily especially if my son opens it. Also disappointed by marketing pictures that don’t more honestly show the prominent white casting dots on the side. Only visible from different angles and photos. I had to call up as I thought it was a rogue batch and was redirected to further pictures that do indeed show it. We have four bantums in ours and they seem happy in it but struggle to locate nest box as it is quite open and the straw can get knocked out. They also struggle with the ladder for some reason.

This is a very good setup. My problem is that , being made in China, it is way overpriced. If I was rating on customer service only I would give 5 stars as customer service is the best. Review for: Eglu Go UP Chicken Coop with 6ft Run and Wheels Package - Purple
Not convinced yet
15 November 2016
When I unpacked the house of my Eglu the feeder was broken and I had the wrong number of screws. I called and these were re-sent promptly. I unpacked the wheels and frame on the weekend and there was a small plastic stopper for the wheels missing. Three things wrong in my order was disappointing, considering the price of the product I expected everything to be present. I was surprised how long it took to put together, the run especially seemed a bit of an unnecessarily lengthy process to clip it all together, surely there is a simpler way to make it? I bought it because my wooden one is falling apart. So far the chicks seem happy enough but I'm yet to be convinced that it's worth the extra money compared to my old wooden one. If it's still working well in 5 years I'll write a more positive review! On the plus side think it will be easy to clean, and to move with the wheels.

Not too bad
19 October 2016
Good product, however I am.a little confused as to how such a simple looking product appeared so complicated to make and assemble, I was expecting an item that had no internal crevices for mites to harbour in during the day but this has lots of gaps between the inner and outer casings. With a little thought and redesign this could be made so much simpler and cheaper than it has been.(think little tykes playhouses) However it is well made and seems that it will do what it says on the box and last for many years to come, chickens like to roost at night so the lack of perches inside seems a little strange for such a well reviewed product?

So far so good awaiting arrival of chickens.
Parcel with coop arrived safe with all the bits.
More difficult and time consuming to assemble than envisaged feel the run attached could be made simpler... too many bits.
