I love love love the height and double-doors of this run. I won't lie, I didn't love putting it together (not because it was hard, just time-consuming), but if you just focus on one step at a time, you'll be done before you know it. The chickens love it too; we do allow them to free-range, but we leave the bottom door open so they can come and go as they please, which they do!
I'm a happy customer! I love the walk in aspect of this run, no need to hurt my back when it's time to clean out the run! The run itself is very secure, and the doors latch tightly to prevent predators. Highly recommend!
Totally love the walk in chicken run that attaches to the cube! I spent a day with a couple of very good friends putting it together which made fun!
This was easy to assemble (one of the few instruction videos online that was easy to follow), and it is a great addition to our coop with nine-foot run. It is so much easier to walk into the run to clean it. I highly recommend it!
I ordered a huge walk in cause i have three dogs and I knew my chickens would not free range. it is so easy and nice to put together i did it all b y myself, and I have been extending it two times, it will be soon 9 x 21 x 6. it is so beautiful also i nam having grapes wine climbing on it and jasmine on the other side ...
I am very happy with the purchase. The 6x6x6 came in 5 or 6 smaller packages that I could easily manage. Two of us put the run together in a few hours. The run is sturdy and attractive.

I’ve had an Eglu cube for six years and a basic run which have been brilliant and still look almost as good as new . I wanted to upgrade to a bigger enclosure so I could add in ducks! We went for a 2x3x2 model with connector to attach the house. Unexpectedly we found putting it together a bit of a nightmare . Partly because all the parts are green and laying it out on grass made it difficult to see all the bits and envisage the build. It’s also best to build it in position as lifting it part built is tricky. Once up though it looked fab and seems very secure.
We’ve pinned it down with heavy duty tent pegs and added a chicken swing which has got plenty of use!
All in all it’s an excellent run which I expect to look fab for many years to come. If I could deduct half a star for the building I would but the final product def deserves 5 stars!

This is a fine piece of design, pleasant on the eye, satisfying to assemble and (touch wood) proven so far to be fox-proof -- our local fox made one direct daylight assault and retired with aching teeth. Since then there has been no evidence of further attempts: the skirting is excellent at discouraging burrowing.
We started off with the standard low height run but decided to take the plunge and buy a full size one some time back. We have not been disappointed and would not go back as it totally changes the whole way we now keep chickens and all for the better. It’s great as you can easily enter the run through the full height door and do whatever you need to do without any concerns that the girls will get out. The fact that everything can be done standing up is a real bonus not to be underestimated.
I’d recommend getting the largest size you can accommodate (and afford) as the extra space is appreciated by all - owners and hens.
Assembly is relatively simple with easy to follow instructions and all the parts provided in clearly labelled packaging. We added a couple of heavy duty covers to provide shading which have impressively stayed put despite some very heavy gales.
