The walk in run was reasonably easy to assemble. It took my husband and I a couple of hours to build. The walk in run connected well to the existing 2m run on my Eglu Go. It looks great in the garden and my four chickens love the extra space. They look so much happier in the new run and since having it two of them have started laying. Thank you Omlet!
I was really pleased to see this option added to the range as I have wanted to give my 2 girls more space for a while. I constructed it on my own in about 2.5 hours and then attached it to extended eglu run. The door is big enough to fit through if you want to move anything around in the run (I have perches and a hanging fruit holder). It blends into the garden well.
Does the job. It's a tad fiddly to put together and will be a hassle to move, but that apart it's an excellent product. Tacked on to my old Eglu classic and run, it gives the birdies much-needed extra space, with security.
We are absolutely delighted with the new walk in Run. It was very easy to assemble, as we had already downloaded the on line instructions. We now have the ability to isolate our girls if necessary and they have loads of space if they need to stay in their run all day. The stable door is very useful for putting treats in without the girls dashing out, and they have lots of equipment (tree branches and a couple of bushes) to entertain them.
So glad I went for this size (6x9) it is so spacious and a delight to sit in with the chooks even on a rainy day. The girls got very spooked when it was being built so after it was finished I took a chair in and had the four of them fall asleep on my lap and on their gang hut (converted kennel), (photos to follow). The Classic is attached on the outside with their original tunnel attached to the other side to give them even more space to range when I am not at home. No more bending and twisting to get the glugs/grubs into the tunnel. Very sturdy and secure and not at all intrusive in my garden. Well done Omlet...keep up the good work.
We have had an Eglu hen house on wheels for ages and with it the run extensions. That set up has worked well but we now need more space for growing things in the garden and so the new walk in run completely fits the bill. It wasn't too hard to attach the new run and we dug a trench all round beforehand and had the whole thing set up quite quickly. We've now added some chicken enrichment to our new run - logs for the girls to perch on - which they really like, and of course they are now totally secure. With the stable type walk in door it's also easy for people to feed them without fear of a hen escape!
