I wanted this coop and this one only because of the easy cleaning and the plastic that makes it so much better for hygiene, and I am so glad I chose it. I even ordered another one to get more chickens.
its easy to put together and the walkin even more I did it by myself . it's the easiest way to have chickens without all the fastidious cleaning that goes with it ! and the pink color is wonderful under my bougainvillea
Worth every penny. The attention to detail and precise engineering makes this a wonderful product. It keeps hens safe and warm/cool whilst allowing human intervention to be easy and trouble free. Collecting eggs, cleaning and securing the door are all very clever designs to make live easier . Highly recommended.
After weeks of endless researching of a quality simple coop, I finally found the Omlet cube. At first, I was intrigued by the "turn key" readiness to get a coop together that I felt confident in protecting my hens. After it arrived, and a few hours of assembly, it turned out to be just that. It is a solid, simple, and impenetrable coop, with the front door closed of course. I couldn't be happier and my chicks love it. Trust me, save yourself the headache of trying to find the best solution of housing for your chickens, make the investment, and you'll never regret your decision.
wonderful product. We like it so much we have ordered two more! An excellent option for the backyard chicken keeper. Allows you to keep chickens in a clean, odor free manner. Assembly is easy and maintenance is simple!
Easy to clean, smart looking unit. Very safe and secure for our chickens as we live in a rural location. It took much longer to assemble than instruction booklet indicated.
I'm an (almost) first time chicken keeper, and I wanted something that meets their needs, is easy to clean and moveable. The Eglu is brilliant and ticks all the boxes (apart from the cost!). It's one less star than because I feel guilty buying something made of non recycled plastic. Warning - it did take me forever to assemble although the instructions are clear and it's so well thought out. I think the handles should be included as I bought these later and they have made it so much easier to move about. Would it be possible to design in a hook to tuck the automatic door cable behind? But thanks Omlet - it's easy clean design gives me more time to enjoy my new chooks.
Omlet Says: Hi Penny, thank you for your review. Our Eglu Cube will last for years and years and at the end of its life can be 100% recycled. We’re sorry that it took you longer than our time stated, could you please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if there was any part of the process you had an issue with? I have passed on your recommendation of a hook to tuck the cable to our product design team. Kind regards, Omlet.
I’m the mother of 4 standard sized chickens living in the city. I wanted a coop that was low maintenance and durable for the girls. I looked at several wood coops but was not thrilled with the quality and unfinished interiors. I was also worried about mites and the inability to clean properly. This coop is well laid out, uses quality materials and is the answer to everything I need! We were able to put it together and wheel it into place. I am a very satisfied customer.
Great product - infinitely better than the well built wooden hen houses we've had in the past. We've had our Eglu Cube for 17 months now so can say that it's great whatever the weather. It's so easy to keep clean (even when there's mud all about) and its height off the ground is perfect for getting eggs out, for cleaning and for the hens to shelter under/make dust baths. We've added the automatic door and other Eglu products, so our girls are as happy as we are! It took us a while to buy owing to the initial cost, but it's worth every penny!
Very please with our new Eglu, I was quite time consuming to put together and would have been difficult on ones own but the instructions generally clear. Our 3 new pullets settled in quickly, learnt to use the ladder and 'go to bed' unaided. The removeable dropping tray is a really useful feature making keeping the Eglu clean very easy. The only improvement I would make would be to add some handles to make wheeling it about easier. Otherwise very well designed and constructed.
I upgraded from a classic Eglu to the Cube, as I had increased my stock of hens. Arrived in well marked boxes, but the building manual could have been a bit clearer, more step-by-step instructions (to avoid the rooky mistakes - using the wrong screws/hinges etc.), but does have good pictures and we did eventually finish making the Cube and run. I felt that the run was more complicated than it needed to be also, it would be better produced in less joining pieces (as in the Eglu run). Also, I would say that the basic two metre model, needs to have an extra half meter or metre added as standard, as my hens (not having been used to using a ladder) fly down the ladder and hit the end of the run.
Saying this, I love the Cube as it is easy to clean out at a sensible height. I would buy Omlet products in preference to wooden hen houses every time, as the hens live more healthily - my girls have never had any mites or leg scales. Quite an expensive initial outlay, but they are worth every pound, as I know that my girls are safe from predators at night and that they are living in the best hen houses money can buy.
