We have had chickens for about 4 years and were tired of the basic cheap wooden coops that only last so long. We looked at purchasing a bigger, better wooden one and then we found the Eglu online. It was a bit more expensive than a larger wooden coop but it will pay for itself in no time because it will last so much longer. So easy to assemble and a lot easier to clean and dry than the wooden ones (especially in winter in the South Island!) Absolutely no regrets = a wonderful product!
