The Eglu Cube is the perfect large chicken coop for all chicken keepers. Quick to clean, with a slide-out dropping tray and smooth hygienic surfaces, this chicken house effortlessly accommodates up to 6 large hens or up to 10 bantams. Like all Omlet’s chicken coops, your chickens will be happy and safe in the spacious, heavy-duty steel run. Omlet’s unique anti-tunnel skirt gives peace of mind that nothing can tunnel in and the dark green coating blends in beautifully with your garden. Puncture-proof wheels make moving the Eglu Cube easy and you can fit Omlet’s Automatic Door Opener for ultimate convenience. The twin-wall insulation keeps your hens comfortable all year round, and with options to extend the run and connect to a Walk-in Run, it’s no wonder the Eglu Cube is Omlet’s best selling and most advanced chicken coop. Watch the video and get ready to find out how good a chicken coop can be.
Great set up once it’s put together, reviews I read all said that it’s a big job and yes it is, no exaggeration there. It’s just roomy enough for our girls, they were used to a big coop so a bit of adjustment but they have figured it all out except for the ladder, we used our old one to get them to go in and out, the plan is to remove it and see if they will use the one it comes with which is quite different to what they are used to. Might consider the auto door in the future as I can see that would make life easier again. Otherwise it’s great, we got the extra metre extension and the heavy duty weather cover too, which was a good decision.
I will be honest it is a hassle to put together but once up it is easy to move. Recommend a run extension if you want six hens, any more I think is too many. The artificial grass for the neat area is also good, and the waterer and feeder is great. The service is very good also
My only regret about the Eglu Cube is not buying it earlier! It did take longer than expected to put it all together, but it was more complicated as I got the automatic door and the light as extra features. The run was the slowest part of the construction, making sure we had it correct. A tip for anyone putting it together - do the cable ties last, as if you go wrong and need to undo anything, those don't make it easy! It took several nights to train my chickens to use the new coop, they were very upset the first night but by night 4 they were happily putting themselves to bed in it despite having full access to their old coop. I have since turned off the light as they don't seem to need it and I think it uses the batteries up faster, but I was glad to have it for the first couple of nights so I could see what was going on inside the coop. I lined the poop tray with newspaper under some wood shavings and the whole lot simply slides off into the compost bin. What a huge time saver!
Thanks to Fionna for the great service and answering all my questions too!
We bought the Eagle Cube and a large walk-in run. The Cube was very easy to assemble. The bottom level of the run is little time consuming and 2 people is definitely an advantage - highly recommend watching the You-tube videos which make the instruction book easier to understand. The rest of the run is easier once the bottom is done.
The run is great - no more food theft by other birds, no predation risk but I can walk in to top up feed, or just open the top of the gate to toss in scraps and treats. The Cube is a delight - so easy to clean you actually want to clean it (!) and so much easier to put my manured wood chips from under the roosting bars into the compost! One of my chooks has to be coaxed out she loves it so much!
Not inexpensive but worth it - I highly recommend the Cube and the run!
Overall it is a great unit, very easy to clean and maintain. It took a bit longer than anticipated to assemble and the chickens have taken some time to adjust to their new home. We have found the ladder is the hardest for some of the chickens to negotiate so made another wooden one to help the older girls get into the coop at night.
The large Eglu Cube Chicken Coop is perfect if you have a large existing flock or you are starting out with 3 but already planning for more chickens!
The coop is perfect for the following sizes:
Up to 10 bantams or
Up to 8 medium size hens or
Up to 6 large breed hens
The rear door panel can be simply unlocked and removed to give you full access to the inside where you’ll find your chickens have everything they need. There is draft free ventilation, a deep nesting booth, and your hens will sleep safely and snugly on the perfectly rounded roosting bars at night.
Keeping your coop hygienically clean and your hens healthy is easy with an Eglu Cube. The roosting bars are designed to let all the droppings fall through onto a slide out tray, which can then be simply removed and emptied onto the compost heap (chicken droppings make brilliant fertilizer for your plants!) The roosting bars can also be lifted out for cleaning. For a deep clean of your Eglu Cube, remove the back panel, nesting box, roosting bars and partition. All the smooth surfaces are made from a high density polymer which you can pressure wash so you can have your chickens’ coop spotlessly clean, pest and red mite free in less than 5 minutes.
Unlike wooden housing, you do not need to treat your Eglu Cube - saving you time and money. Made from energy efficient polymers using modern construction techniques, the Eglu Cube will last for years and at the end of its life can be 100% recycled.
Omlet knows that your chicken’s run is just as important as their house. That’s why the Eglu Cube’s spacious, secure run is made from heavy duty steel weld mesh, and features a unique anti-tunnel skirt that even the most persistent predator won’t be able to break or dig through. No other chicken run offers such a high level of protection giving you peace of mind that your hens are safe inside when you’re not home. Eglu runs have been rigorously tried and tested for over 15 years.
The dark green PPE coating is fused to the metal wires ensuring an extremely durable finish that looks great in any garden. The standard 2 metre run is suitable for up to 4 chickens and can be extended in approximately 1m lengths. You can position the Eglu on grass, wood chippings or soil and if the area is uneven you can secure the anti-tunnel skirt to the ground with Omlet’s Screw Pegs. There’s lots of room inside to enrich the run with treat holders, additional perches and peck toys.
Collecting fresh eggs every morning is a daily delight for chicken keepers. The Eggport on the side of the Eglu Cube chicken coop gives direct access to the nest box. You can get up to 12 eggs per week from 2 hens so if you have a large flock you’ll have plenty of eggs for cakes, Sunday brunch and Omlets!
More chickens means more eggs and the new Eglu Cube has a spacious yet private nesting booth where up to 3 chickens at a time can lay in comfort. The new partition has a sliding door that you can use to close the nest at night to stop hens roosting in there.
The roosting bars are designed for maximum comfort for your hens when they are perching at night. Unlike houses with a single roosting bar there’s no danger of injury for larger, older or recovering hens from jumping up or down from the perch. In addition the roosting bars let all the droppings fall through to the tray underneath keeping the floor that the hens walk on cleaner. The bars can also be simply lifted out for cleaning.
Open and close the Cube’s front door using the large handle on top of the house. Easy to do even in winter with gloves on! Letting your chickens out in the morning or securing the coop at night couldn’t be easier.
The Eglu Cube comes ready prepared with fixing points inside the house so that you can fit the Omlet Automatic Chicken Coop Door Door in minutes. The battery or mains powered Autodoor can be set to open and close at a specific time or by a light sensor. Attaching the Autodoor to your Eglu Cube will free up your time without compromising your chickens' safety!
The horizontal-style Automatic door improves coop security, as predators cannot simply lift it up, and the built-in safety sensors prevent accidental closures on your chickens. Reliable in all weather conditions, the Autodoor is the perfect solution for opening your Eglu Cube without getting out of bed in the morning, and also for closing your coop in the evening when it’s dark before you are home from work!
Add an optional Coop Light to guide your chickens up to the coop 5 minutes before the Autodoor is set to close for the evening.Add the Coop Light
The wheels make the Eglu Cube effortless to move, even by just one person. Simply press down with your foot on the pedal and the Cube is lifted into the air. Wheel the hen house into its new position and release the wheel mechanism with another push of the pedal and the Eglu Cube will gently rest back onto the ground. The wheels can be used with the Eglu Cube with or without the run, they simply attach to the frame of the house. If you’ve got a longer run, or a particularly uneven lawn, the optional Eglu Run Handles will make moving the coop even easier.
Eglu Cubes are used by chicken keepers all over the world from Australia to Canada and everywhere in between. Why? Because they provide protection from all types of weather extremes. The Eglu Cube 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 your hens body heat inside, while ensuring cold air on the outside cannot penetrate through.
In summer your chickens will be kept cool by the Eglu Cube's draught-free ventilation system, carefully designed to avoid air blowing directly over the roosting area whilst allowing fresh air to circulate. You can also add different run covers to keep your hens comfortable outside whatever the weather.
We want to make it as easy as possible for you to start keeping chickens, which is why you'll get lots of free extras with every Eglu Cube chicken house. Whichever type of Eglu Cube you buy, you'll get an innovative feeder and drinker in the matching colour. These fit neatly to the run, maximising floor area, or if you don’t choose a run you can choose an optional stand to hold these up neatly. The covered design protects food from rain, and both are dishwasher proof, for ultra easy cleaning. The biggest reward of an Eglu chicken coop, of course, is the free eggs you'll be treated to every morning. Nothing beats that! So you will also receive 10 Omlet Egg Boxes, suitable for storing or giving away four eggs at a time to family and friends. If you choose an Eglu Cube with a chicken run, it comes with a summer shade, to attach to the run and protect 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. For a heavy duty version that lasts for ages please see our range of Omlet eglu weather protection.
The Eglu Cube House is suitable for 10 bantams, 6-8 medium sized chickens like the brown shaveror 4-5 larger breeds such as Buff Orpingtons. When setting up your Eglu, you should allow 90cm of space at the back of the house to allow the dropping tray to slide out easily and 60cm at the front to allow you to open the run door.

If you want to give your hens a larger area to enjoy in the garden you can combine your Eglu Cube with the Omlet Chicken Fencing.

It has also got a cleverly designed inbuilt gate that can be positioned wherever you choose, making it even easier for you to get in and spend time with your chickens.Buy now

We have been trialling these nest liners for a while now in our Omlet Eglu Go 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. 😊
In less than 5 minutes (watch our video) you can have your chickens coop spotlessly clean.
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 develop, then repair them to give your chicken run the best chance of staying well maintained.
