Excellent product - John,

Everything is excellent except the ladder to the Eglu My girls had great difficulty using it, so they flew to the top and flew out of the coop in the morning. I’ve had a wooden ramp with slats for their feet to grasp made and they’re much happier. Would love it if you had a ramp rather than a ladder

Omlet Says: Thanks for leaving us a review John! Occasionally some chickens do struggle with the ladder. We usually suggest encouraging them up and down it with treats as an incentive, slowly but surely they tend to get the hang of it. Glad to hear you've found an alternative that suits you though!


Great Product but expensive and not built for the Australian climate - Dale, QLD,

Finished building my Eglu Cube with 4m run a few days before Christmas, along with the Omlet Autodoor. My three chickens took to it immediately and no problems with the ladder and roosting. I only needed to keep them locked in the run for 2 days as they learnt quickly where to roost and where to lay the eggs. After spending a few weeks with the product, these are the Pros and Cons as I see them (bearing in mind I live in Northern Australia where it's very hot and very humid in the summer and fairly mild in the winter). PROS: *Plastic product, so reduces the risk of large mite infestations *Easy to clean - takes all of 5 minutes *Limited ongoing maintenance - wood rots very quickly in wet Australian summers, even if it's been coated *Fairly easy to put together with the instruction manual and youtube video, just a little tedious *Can move the coop fairly easily around the garden if necessary. A big positive for me as I can easily wheel into the garage if a cyclone is threatening *Materials seem fairly sturdy, so should hold up well *Fairly predator proof. Although foxes aren't really an issue in my area, they are a big issues in other parts of Australia and the skirting should help keep them out. Main predator in my area would be sizeable pythons. *The Autodoor works a treat and takes a matter of minutes to install. I also got the coop light which comes in handy as it helps the chickens find their roosting spot and settle in for the night as well as checking on the girls at night if needed. *Girls seem to be very happy with their new coop as they weren't really enjoying roosting in their old wooden coop, preferring to roost on the roof (although I couldn't see any evidence of mites). CONS: *Omlet being a UK company, the coop is probably built moreso for UK conditions rather than the summers we experience here in Australia. Omlet claim the coop stays cool in summer, but I imagine it's been tested in a British summer. I have found the coop to be too hot, so have removed the back panel and fitted my own mesh panel with flyscreen attached to allow for much more breeze to blow through and ventilate the coop. It should be enough to keep the snakes out, but if you lived in a fox prone area my quick and dirty mesh panel won't do the job. The chickens are still panting after this alteration, however it's better than it was. I will reinstall the back panel in the winter when temperatures are more comfortable. *The plastic clips supplied to put the run together won't last a terribly long time in ongoing Australian summers. I suspect they will turn brittle and snap, so would recommend getting some mesh clips to install along with the plastic clips so if the clips snap when trying to move the coop, you won't have the whole run falling apart. *Omlet claim up to 6 large chicken or 10 bantam chickens. This would be a bit of a stretch for Australian climate as chickens prefer a little more space between them during summer as it's too hot to cuddled up together. I wouldn't be having more than 4 medium to large chickens if you want them to remain somewhat comfortable on a hot summer night. *Expensive. The coop isn't cheap and is somewhat overpriced despite it being a great product. With the Cube, 4m run and Autodoor it amounted to $2026.15 including a $300+ delivery fee. Is it worth paying all that money? Well, that would be up to the individual. For me, it's probably worth it in the time saved with ongoing maintenance, cleaning and replacement of wooden coops. I would say it's probably a couple of hundred dollars overpriced, though. All in all I am happy with my purchase, however if you live in a climate with very hot summers, then you may need to make some alterations as despite making my own alterations, the chickens are still panting at night (which is basically unavoidable in Aussie summers regardless).

A good buy - Teresa, New South Wales,

I got x2 1M run extensions for my Eglu Cube. This makes the whole thing about 4M long and gives my 7 hens much more room. It's pretty unwieldy to move though, so I attached plastic piping (with dowel inside to stiffen it) down each side of the coop, to use as handles, which works quite well.
