New Green Cubes arriving early June.
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.
This coop is super easy to clean and looks good. My chickens seem to like it although one is still a little hesitant about coming down the ladder (she flies down after sitting at the top for a bit). The others seem all good and all climb up the ladder each night without any issues. Love the poop tray and how easy it is to take out the roosting bars etc for cleaning. Was not the easiest to put together following the instructions in the booklet. However, we found a youtube video of it that made it much easier. The coop was delivered super fast to Auckland. Would definitely buy this coop again and can see it lasting for ages.
It took longer to install than the instruction booklet stated but I was being 'helped' by a 5 year old :) Comprehensive instructions and even a you tube tutorial for back up. Looks great. Just need hens!
Being anti plastic I was dubious. No more! It’s a great piece of cleverly engineered home ‘farming’ equipment. Easy clean and five fat happy hens call it home.
Although it took awhile to put together, plans were very clear . Strong and although it’s only been a couple of days, my hens have adapted to their new home. Very funny watching them climb the ladder for first time, they were trying to perch but wasn’t happening . Eventually they all made it inside , and happy.
Having kept chooks back in Scotland, I knew I wanted an Eglu when I set up again in NZ. The issues of keeping a wooden henhouse free of mites is a hassle I never need in my life again!
I had researched the system many years ago and have never read anything negative about the Eglu. I am very happy with my purchase, my husband and I had fun building it...with a little help from the online videos.
Cleaning is so quick and easy. Literally less than five minutes to remove base and roost floor, take to the hose, rinse and replace. then the hens have the healthiest environment possible to spend the night. A friend came to see the new chickens and was so impressed by the Eglu, she went home and bought one!
Appletons also provided a brilliant service and I can't recommend them highly enough.
All in all, this is the best you can buy ... and given I am usually anti plastic products, that is saying a lot.
The only down side I can foresee is the Eglu not being big enough for all the chooks I would like to have..... any chance of a 20 bird size?! :-)
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 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.
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. This allows you to create a wonderful chicken playground in your garden, while also preventing your hens from wandering into the neighbour's. The discreet and strong fencing can be adjusted to fit the space you’ve got, and works perfectly with the Eglu Cube both with or without run. 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
You can give your chickens even more space by adding a run extension to your Eglu Cube. It is made of the same strong steel weld mesh with a durable coating and anti tunnel skirting. Each extension comes as three panels - two sides and a roof as well as a support arch made of coated steel tube. Each run extension adds approximately 1 meter to the length of the run. Alternatively you can give your chickens even more secure space with one of Omlet’s matching and very popular Walk-In Runs.Buy Now
Moving your Eglu is now even easier with these specially designed Eglu Run Handles. The handles fit neatly onto the run of your chicken coop or hutch to allow you to manoeuvre your pet's home precisely and with both hands.Buy Now
You can give your chickens even more space by adding run extensions to your Eglu Cube. Made of the same strong steel weld mesh as the Eglu runs, the run extensions come in approximately 1m long sections and are quick to attach. You can use the extra space to add fun treat dispensing toys, like the Peck Toy or Caddi Treat Holder. Alternatively, you can create a secure chicken paradise with the addition of Omlet’s Omlet’s 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 will also give your chickens a large play space to enjoy when you cannot let them out to free range, and you can accessorise your run with a traditional wooden perch, or teach them to do a tuck back salto with full twist on a Chicken Swing!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.
