Great for Flat Ground Backyard Chooks

First up: Appletons are great to deal with! We got the Eglu Go Up with an extra metre of enclosure and covers so that both bits have shade or rain cover. We were thinking: ready-made "chicken-tractor". Not quite, but we're happy with it as an attractive flat lawn home for our small flock. Coop is easy to clean, plus with the double-skin walls muffle night time noise while keeping our chooks cosy. Great to quarantine lively new flock arrivals, too. Some design improvement for better access to some areas is possible, which we'll share with Appletons in email. Loving fresh eggs and the sweet chookie characters. They sure get a kick out of flitting from the top of the stairs out of their coop into the run area. Enjoy!

Eglu up chicken coop

It is a good quality coop and enclosure. Very neat. It was a bit fiddly to put together and some details were not on the instructions.

Eglu Go Up

Overall, really happy with the purchase. The coop arrived well packaged and was relatively simple to put together. The most tricky part was the run and took the longest to figure out especially all those clips. We also needed to obtain extra cable ties. We followed videos on youtube rather than using the instructions booklet which was complicated. My young chicks took a few days to figure out how to go up and down the ladder but they are happily settled in now. Will have to see how the egg-laying goes as currently, they sleep and poop mostly in the nesting area. I also added the run extension as otherwise, the run area is too small for adult chickens if they cannot be let out daily. With the run extension, the coop is a bit tricky to move and its best to have 2 people for it. Cleaning is pretty easy due to the smooth plastic surface. It's great that everything can be hosed down. The coop is also very cosy for the chicks; they fall asleep very quickly. What is missing is more protection from the elements; the sun cover is too small and not really protective, I'm using a larger cloth. I will also need to buy the rain cover eventually.

Eglu Go Up

We love our Eglu Go Up with extension and so do our chooks. So easy to move around weekly and also very easy to clean. Keeps our chooks snug at night.

The Omlet Eglu Go UP chicken coop is perfect for families looking to keep a
small flock of chickens in a town or country garden.

The perfect raised mobile chicken coop for a flock of up to 4 hens

Raised Up for Easy Access

The Eglu Go UP is the perfect solution if you want a small flock of chickens in your garden. This movable chicken house is suitable for up to 4 small to medium sized chickens, such as Pekin bantams and Brown Shavers, or 2-3 larger breeds, like Orpingtons. The Eglu Go UP has all the benefits of the Eglu Go, but at a convenient, raised height. Your hens will love roosting up off the ground and laying in the private nest area, while you will appreciate not having to bend down to collect eggs or clean the coop, making chicken keeping even more of a delight!

Easy to Clean 

Cleaning your Eglu Go UP Chicken Coop is quick and easy, and it will only take you a few minutes a week to keep it in great condition. The removable plastic roosting bars are carefully designed to allow all the droppings to fall through onto the tray underneath. This can then be removed and emptied straight into the compost bin (chicken droppings make brilliant fertilizer for your plants). All the smooth surfaces are made from a high density waterproof polymer which you can pressure wash to get your chickens’ coop spotlessly clean in less than 5 minutes. The Eglu Go UP is designed for zero maintenance.
Unlike wooden housing, you will never need to paint or re-roof your Eglu - saving you time and money.

A Comfortable Temperature All Year Round

Eglu coops are used by chicken keepers all over the world from New Zealand,to Canada and everywhere in between. Why? Because they provide protection from all types of weather extremes. The Eglu Go UP keeps your hens warm in winter. It has a unique twin-wall insulation system that works in a similar way to double glazing in your house, by trapping a pocket of air between two surfaces. This is an extremely effective way of insulating the coop, making sure the body heat from your chickens has nowhere to go! In summer the same insulation will keep your chickens cool, and the draught-free ventilation system has been designed to keep fresh air circulating in the coop at all times, without air blowing directly over the roosting and nesting area.

Easy to Move

Although you can choose to keep your Eglu chicken coop in one place, you may want to move it around the garden regularly, to allow your grass to recover, and give hens a new patch of lawn to nibble at. Using the easy foot operated wheel mechanism, one person will be able to simply push or pull the Eglu Go UP around on their own. 
Optional Eglu Run Handles are available and can be purchased separately to make moving even easier.

Spacious, Predator-Proof Run

The standard 2m chicken run is made from strong steel weld mesh, virtually impossible for predators to break. This means that when you are out and about, you can be sure that your chickens are safe. A unique anti-tunnel skirt sits flat on the ground and prevents animals from digging in, and the dark green coating will blend into your garden beautifully. 

Extendable Run and Easy to Connect to a Large Walk-In Run

You can extend the predator proof run at any time with run extension packs in approximately 1m long sections, made of the same strong steel weld mesh as the Eglu run. You can use the extra space to add fun treat dispensing toys, like the Peck Toy or Caddi Treat Holder. Another popular option for providing your hens with secure space to exercise is to connect your coop to a Walk-In Chicken Run. These extremely popular runs offer the benefit of added height so you can go into the run and hang out with your hens. It’s a great solution if you are not able to let your chickens free range in the garden during the day. The dark green mesh will also blend in beautifully, so that the chickens’ home can be a natural part of the garden. You can even accessorise your run with a traditional wooden perch, or modern Chicken Swing!

Add a 1m Run Extension

Top and Bottom Run Door Work Independently

The Eglu Go UP has a convenient, and practical stable-style door at the end of the run. The top and bottom open independently of each other, and both have run pins to secure them in an open or closed position. Open both doors when you want to allow your chickens out in the garden or to get full access to the run, or keep the bottom door closed if you want to do a quick feeder and drinker refill without your hens escaping.

Fresh Eggs

One of the best things about being a chicken keeper is the fresh eggs your hens will provide you with every day; without a doubt the best eggs you will ever taste! Your hens will sleep snugly on the perfectly rounded roosting bars and they’ll love the integrated nesting box in the Eglu Go UP. You can fill the nest with bedding and look forward every morning to collecting eggs by opening the large door at the back.

Ergonomic Ladder Grips Help Smaller and Rescued Chickens

The new and improved ladder design has larger, non-slip rungs that your chickens will find comfortable to grip in all seasons. The durable, all-weather grips simply clip on to the rungs of the Eglu Go UP ladder to provide a large non-slip surface. The grips are especially useful for older, less agile chickens, or for young hens who are perhaps using the ladder for the first time, but will be appreciated by chickens of all ages. The Eglu Ladder Grips have been a standard feature of the Eglu Go UP chicken coop since July 2020 and are fully compatible with all Eglu Go UP coops bought before this date.

Happy Chickens

Your hens will love living in the Eglu Go Up chicken coop. They'll be able to pop up and down the ladder as they please, keeping nice and snug when it's time to sleep, and having privacy when they want to lay an egg. If you choose the Eglu Go UP with chicken run, your hens will be able to roam around during the day, safe from dogs, and you can let them have a wander around the whole garden when you're there to watch. With a house like this, all the other chickens in town will be filled with henvy!

Free Extras

The Eglu Go UP is the perfect coop for the experienced and first time chicken keeper. You get lots of free extras with your Eglu Go UP! An innovative no-spill feeder and drinker that are designed to hang neatly to the run, maximising floor area and protecting food from rain come with every Eglu Go UP. They are also dishwasher proof, making cleaning super easy. The biggest reward of an Eglu chicken coop, of course, are the free eggs you'll be treated to every morning. Nothing beats that! You will receive 10 Omlet Egg Boxes, suitable for storing your eggs or giving away four at a time to family and friends.
If you choose an Eglu Go UP with a run, you’ll also receive a summer shade that can be attached to the run to protect your hens from wind and rain. It's very handy in the summer too, to keep your girls protected from the midday sun. Please note this shade will not last long as is not UV treated.

Use Chicken Astroturf for Clean Eggs

We have been trialling these nest liners for a while now in our Omlet Eglu Go Up Chicken Coop and they work extremely well. Thumbs up all round from both the hens and us! 👍🐔🥚
We have seen no broken eggs since using the nest liners. Hens sometimes kick wood shavings out the nest bowl especially when fluffing around to lay. With the chicken astroturf eggs are laid directly on top. Eggs stay nice and clean ready for collecting. 😊

Care and Maintenance
Omlet strives to make the world's best pet products. You should note that some components are made from metal and the coating may need maintenance over time. Regular care and maintenance is important to increase the life of your Omlet Chicken Run. We recommend regular rinsing with potable water especially if you live in an area or suburb that is coastal or prone to sea breezes or salty air. If rust spots do develop, then you should repair them to give your chicken run the best chance of staying well maintained. Omlet Green Touch Up Paint is available for purchase in a handy 20ml bottle.
