Have had wooden arks for years but decided to treat myself and new chickens to an eglu as the ark needed repair. It took quite a while to put together esp the run but it is really good. The cleaning arrangements at the back with the pull out trays are particularly good. The skirt around it has stopped the rats burrowing in!!!
Excellent service and item - happy chickens so happy us.
I purchased a conversion kit for my eglu go, It was fairly simple to fit and took time but the instructions were clear.
MY chooks took it like a duck to water ! I now have foiled the rodents chances of a dry night s sleep under my previous eglu go house over the winter months.
Have wanted to convert my Go to a Go Up for some time but did not have room to attach the run to my WIR. So we just bought the frame and a steel mesh panel from you and converted it ourselves!! Works a treat and I no longer have to crawl on my hands and knees!
We low the Eglu Go Up.
It took a while for our girls to get used to their new ladder but now they are climbing up there with no problem. Gives more space in the run as they are able to shelter underneath.
All in all very pleased.
The frame and ladder were fairly easy to assemble. The directions are very good. I was able to attach my Eglu Go Chicken House that I have had and used for 4 years (and is still in good shape). My only concern is that my large hen (8lbs at least) doesn't seem to be able or willing to climb the ladder. It has only been a couple of days so I'm hoping she will eventually learn how to do it. The price is high (especially with shipping) for me, but I am not a carpenter and I have found all the Omlet products I have purchased to be of very good quality.
Ideal makes access very easy
Having had a wooden ark previously decided to go for omlet for easy cleaning and maintenance ! Brilliant on that front, very quick to clean out! !
Girls Sussed out the steps up straight away but one still insists on throwing herself off the top rung and lands with a splat coming down in the morning!
Love the door, easy to shut them in at night!
Run was slightly complicated to put together, hubby was in charge of construction and the number of pieces did seem to make the job harder than maybe it need to be!!
Regardless of that will probably get the extension to give them more space soon!!!
Love the colour...brightens up the garden and makes me smile!!!
Would definitely recommend ( and have done to friends!!!) looking forward to the eggs arriving now!!!
I purchased my go up before our winter. We have very snowy winters. I live in the Northeast US and before the up I saw rodent evidence under my go. I got the no more road and evidence my girls love being up off of the ground and very little snow got into their coop. Love love love!
