4 Good Reasons to Purchase an Eglu
Omlet in the UK have been designing contemporary, easy-care chicken housing for over 10 years. They originally started out with the innovative Eglu Classic Chicken Coop which won awards and changed our way on keeping chickens. Beautifully designed the Eglu Classic is the only chicken house in the permanent collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum. Over the years Omlet have extended their range to include the Eglu Cube Chicken Coop. They improved and updated the Classic and created the Eglu Go Chicken Coop which soon evolved up into the Eglu Go Up Chicken Coop offering easy to move to their repertoire. In addition to their chicken housing they have Walk In Runs and Omlet Chicken Fencing to complement their housing - all in all making keeping chickens a pleasure.
4 Good Reasons to Purchase an Omlet Chicken Coop
1) Low Maintenance
You'll find keeping your Eglu Chicken Coop in tip-top condition a breeze thanks to its innovative slide-out dropping tray and wipe clean surfaces. Made from energy efficient polymers, it's a hygienic home for your hens that will last for years and at the end of its life can be 100% recycled.
2) Easy To Clean
The Eglu is quick and easy to clean with a slide out tray for collecting droppings and a large door at the back which allows easy access to the roosting bars and nesting area. Simply slide the droppings tray out and empty into the compost bin. The Eglu’s smooth plastic surfaces can be washed with a hose – no difficult corners or absorbent materials, or give it a deep clean quickly with a pressure washer. Unlike wooden housing, you do not need to spray your Eglu.
3) Predator Proof
The optional (yet recommended) runs are made from strong steel weld mesh, virtually 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. You can extend the run in 1m sections if you wish. 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 coating is fused to the metal wires ensuring an extremely durable finish that looks great in the garden. The run comes in sections for easy transportation or storage and can be assembled in minutes.
4) Easy To Move
There’s nothing better than a chicken coop with wheels. You can move the Eglu Go Up or Cube (they do not all come with wheels) on your own effortlessly around your garden using the special puncture-proof wheels and easy to operate lever mechanism. Simply press down 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 wheels move fluidly and they are puncture-proof.
