The Eglu Cube Chicken Coop is the ideal way to keep up to 10 chickens in a town or country garden. Based on the same revolutionary technology as the original Omlet Eglu Classic plastic chicken coop, with a slide-out dropping tray, wipe clean surfaces, twin-walled insulation, no maintenance and No Predator Allowed protection. The easy to move Eglu Cube hen house with an extendable run makes it simple to keep a large flock of hens in your garden and leaves you with more time to enjoy the pleasures of keeping chickens. The Eglu Cube is Omlet’s best-selling and most advanced chicken coop. Now with new and improved features it’s time to discover the amazing Eglu Cube.
Both we and our feathered girls are very happy with our new Eglu coop. Easy to assemble, easy to clean, warm and cosy inside, and predator-proof - so can't really ask for more.
One minor issue of the corner panel wires not being fully welded was quickly resolved by the supply of a replacement.
So a good product associated with good service - recommended.
Great dealing with Fiona at Appletons for the purchase of my super duper chicken coop. Goods arrived smartly - yes we are well out of area - and in excellent condition. Viewing construction video online definitely helped and I’d recommend that. Coop bits arrived in a number of cartons and it wasn’t until I opened the last one that I found the overall instruction book. So maybe this carton needs it stated on the outside. But all in all, great product, great service. Thanks.
Couldn't fault the service from Appletons. Great advice over the phone and fast service. It took a while to set up but no major issues following the instructions. We got the run extension and have 3 brown shavers. I had to put them in the cube for the first night but after that they were happy to put themselves to bed. Although we have them free ranging for most of the day, they have started laying and go back into the coop to use the nesting compartment. Haven't had any issues with them sleeping in the nesting compartment and getting it dirty yet.
Easy to clean and overall very happy with our purchase.
Very impressed with the Cube and with Appleton's as a supplier, they have been very helpful. Took a little longer than Eglu advise to assemble but the instructions are very clear and a lot of thought and imagination has gone into the design. Very well made and the hens love it.
I an delighted with my purchase. I wanted a chook house that would be easy to maintain.
I also wanted the house up off the ground as it's pretty damp here. The great insulation was also a reason why I chose this. It's attractive and looks great with a native bush backdrop. I was kept in the loop of when it would arrive. Took me a few hours to put together, on my own. Please note I'm not great at following instructions but found this easy to follow. Thanks team
The Eglu Cube comes complete with everything you need to get started including the no-spill food and water containers. The house is fitted with comfortable roosting bars, a large slide-out dropping tray and an integrated nest box. Collecting eggs is easy through the eggport. Raised up on a sturdy frame with an improved non-slip ladder it’s the convenient way to keep a large flock of hens. With Omlet’s unique steel weld mesh run you’ll have the peace of mind of a secure outdoor space for your hens that can be enlarged using the run extensions or by connecting it to one of Omlet’s popular Walk in Runs. The purpose designed wheels make your chicken’s dream coop a breeze to move.
Inside the house the Eglu is fitted with comfortable roosting bars that are suitable for up to 10 smaller bantam breeds such as Pekins, 6-8 medium sized hens like the Brown Shaver as well as 4-5 large breeds like Light Sussex and Plymouth Rocks. The rear panel door can be simply unlocked and removed to give you full access to the inside where you’ll find the nesting booth which has a redesigned partition giving your laying hens extra privacy and a sliding door that can be closed at night.
The Eglu Cube makes light work of the weekly clean. Inside chickens have a large roosting area fitted with a slatted floor. All the droppings fall through the slats onto the new larger slide out dropping tray, which can then be simply emptied onto the compost heap. Remove the back panel and you can also remove the nesting box, roosting bars and partition for cleaning. In less than 5 minutes (watch our video) you can have your chickens coop spotlessly clean.
The Eglu Cube is low maintenance too. 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.
The Eglu Cube is a really secure chicken house. The 2m run is made from strong steel weld mesh, impossible for predators to break. A unique anti-tunnel skirt sits flat on the ground and prevents animals from digging in. The run has spacious vertical sides and gives your chickens plenty of room. The Eglu can be positioned on grass or any other surface such as wood chippings or rough ground where the chickens can rummage. The unique tunnel-proof panels have been proven in rigorous testing to be predator resistant. The run means that when you are out and about you can be sure that your chickens are safe. The dark green PPE coating is fused to the metal wires ensuring an extremely durable finish that looks great. The standard 2 meter run is suitable for up to 6 chickens. The run can be extended in approx 1m lengths to suit your requirements allowing you to keep up to 10 chickens.
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.
Collecting your eggs every morning is a daily delight and the Eggport on the side of the new Eglu Cube means it couldn’t be any more convenient. 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!
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.
Letting your chickens out in the morning or securing the new Eglu Cube at night couldn’t be simpler. Using the handle on top of the Cube you simply lift and twist to open and close the door in one convenient motion. The action of pushing the handle down locks the door. No fiddly catches or bolts that don't line up.
The Eglu Cube also comes ready prepared with special fixing points inside the house so that the Omlet Automatic Chicken Coop Door fits seamlessly to it. When your Auto Door arrives all you need to do is attach it with four bolts. It is battery powered and combines both a timer and a light sensor, giving you the ultimate options for flexibility and control.Add an Autodoor
Two people can move the Eglu Cube but with the new puncture proof wheels one person can effortlessly move it on their own. With the wheels attached simply press down with your foot on the operating levers and push them into the resting notches to raise the chicken run off the ground, then push or pull the hen house into its new position.
The Eglu Cube run has a stable-style door. The top and bottom open independently from one another, and both have run pins to secure them into a closed or open position. Keep the bottom door closed when you open the top door so that you can refill the feeder and drinker without your hens nipping out and into the garden. Open the bottom door when you want to let your hens out to have some free ranging time. This photo shows the Eglu Cube with a 1m Run Extension attached.
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 Cube 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 can also be used as a permanent feature of your Eglu set up. The Eglu Ladder Grips have been a standard feature of the Eglu Cube chicken coop since July 2020 and are fully compatible with all Eglu Cube Mk2 coops bought before this date.Upgrade To Ladder Grips Now
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.
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.
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 coop. Whichever colour of Eglu Cube with 2m Run you buy, you'll get an innovative feeder and drinker. These fit neatly to the run, maximising floor area, the covered design protects food from rain, and both are dishwasher proof, for ultra easy cleaning. You'll receive 10 Omlet Egg Boxes, suitable for giving away four eggs at a time to family and friends, and easy to follow instructions to help you build your Eglu quickly. See below to watch a step by step video on how to assemble your new Eglu Cube. We will also throw in 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 the summer shades are designed for short term use as are not UV treated and do not last long. When it is time you can invest in a heavy duty cover these last ages.
The biggest reward of an Eglu chicken coop, of course, is the free eggs you'll be treated to every morning. Nothing beats that!
The Eglu Cube House is suitable for 10 bantams, 6-8 medium sized chickens like the brown shavers or 4-6 larger breeds such as Barred Plymouth Rocks. 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.

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
