Eglu Go Chicken Coop
Design your coop
A Complete Chicken House Package
The Eglu Go Chicken Coop is the simple, stylish, straightforward way to start keeping chickens. It is designed for you to keep up to 4 medium hens like the Gingernut Ranger or 2-3 larger breeds such as Brahmas and Buff Orpintons. The small chicken coop kit comes complete with everything you need to get started. It has plastic roosting bars and a discreet nesting area which can be filled with straw or shredded paper to make a comfortable nest for your chickens. The freshly laid eggs can be plucked from the nest simply by opening the door at the back and can be served with some buttery soldiers in a matter of minutes - delicious!
You'll find keeping your Eglu Go Chicken Coop in tip-top condition a breeze thanks to its innovative slide-out dropping tray and wipe clean surfaces. Made from energy efficient polymers, it's a hygienic home for your hens that will last for years and at the end of its life can be 100% recycled.
Easy To Clean Plastic Chicken Coop
The Eglu Go is quick and easy to clean with a slide out tray for collecting droppings and a large door at the back which allows easy access to the roosting bars and nesting area. Simply slide the droppings tray out and empty into the compost bin - they will make a wonderful fertilizer for your plants. The Eglu’s smooth plastic surfaces can be washed with a hose – no difficult corners or absorbent materials, or give it a deep clean quickly with a pressure washer. Unlike wooden housing, you do not need to treat your Eglu.
The Fox Resistant Chicken Run!
The optional (yet recommended) standard 2m run is made from strong steel weld mesh, virtually impossible for predators to break. A unique anti-tunnel skirt sits flat on the ground and prevents animals from digging in. The run has spacious vertical sides and gives your chickens plenty of room. You can extend the run in 1m sections if you wish. These small chicken coops can be positioned on grass or any other surface such as wood chippings or rough ground where the chickens can rummage.
Changeable Door Position
The new run design means you can now position the door on either the side or the end panels. This is useful if you want to fit the Eglu Go into a spot where accessing the run would be more convenient from the side. You can use the door to let your chickens out and they will enjoy roaming around your backyard looking for slugs and other tasty morsels.
The Eglu Go luxury chicken house has a single large door at the back, which you can open to reveal the roosting bars, nesting area and dropping tray.
Nest Box and Roosting Bars
The Eglu has roosting bars for your chickens to perch at night and a discreet nesting box which can be filled with straw, shredded paper or wood shavings.
Easy Operable Front Door
Let your chickens out in the morning and shut them away at night using the front door. Easy to use, and perfect when you want to keep your chickens out in the run while you clean the inside of your Eglu or collect those freshly laid eggs!
Keep Your Chickens Warm in Winter
The insulated plastic chicken coop is specially designed to keep your chickens warm in winter. The Eglu has a unique twin-wall insulation system which works in a similar way to double glazing trapping a pocket of air which provides a very effective means of insulating the house.
...And Cool in Summer
In summer your chickens will be kept cool by the Eglu's draught-free ventilation system, carefully designed to avoid air blowing directly over the roosting area whilst allowing fresh air to circulate.

How much space do I need to keep chickens?
Ideally your backyard should have a fence all the way round. This will prevent your chickens from wandering into the neighbour's backyard and, more importantly, ensure that all the eggs are laid on your side of the fence! The fence should be about 1.5m (5ft) high.
If you do not have grass, it is possible to keep a couple of chickens but you must provide them with a layer of wood chippings to rummage about in as this will give them the right type of surface underfoot.

Frequently Asked Questions
While the strong materials and thought out design makes it extremely hard for predators to get to your pets, no coop is 100% predator proof. Check the coop and run regularly to make sure all features are working as intended, including latches, doors and run clips.
If you live in an area with lots of predators, you might want to consider adding additional protection to the run. Keep on top of egg collecting and control rodents to minimise the risk of attracting snakes and lizards. If you've seen possums or other particularly dexterous animals around your yard, it's also a good idea to find a way to secure doors and latches with extra locks to stop them getting to your flock.
The metal chicken runs are designed to be used outdoors for years to come. However, we recommend that you check the run regularly for signs of corrosion, especially if you live somewhere with extreme weather conditions or close to the sea. Corrosion will occur if the coating has been scratched or scraped for example. If you do see some, remove any loose rust and touch up with a weather resistant paint. If you have covers on your run and experience heavy snowfall it's advised you clear the snow off the roof to avoid the panels being damaged from the weight.
While the Eglu Go does not have traditional wooden perches, it does have specially designed perches with a structured surface and rounded corners for the chickens to sleep comfortably on at night.
Roosting bars allow the chickens to grip onto something while they sleep, which makes them feel safe and comfortable. Although they don’t look like traditional wooden perches, roosting bars are great for larger breeds who find it tricky to jump up to a raised perch, or recently rescued hens who don’t have the strength to flap, and the shape of the bars makes sure most of the droppings fall straight onto the slide out, easy clean tray underneath.
