Took a while to put together but we are nearly there and it looks great! It will be so much easier to keep clean than our old wooden chicken coop, and we won't have to bend over to collect the eggs or to clean out the poop tray.
Some of the instructions were a bit confusing for us -it would have been an idea to read through them thoroughly first and to lay out all the pieces before we started , but we were keen to get assembling, so that was our fault! Everything fits together easily and we are still reasonably sane and talking to each other!
From start to finish, the process of ordering, receiving and erecting this wonderful chicken coop and run was effortless. More importantly, we have four very happy bantams. We wouldn't hesitate to order from Appletons again. Thank you so much!!
The team at Appletons were awesome! The cube is well designed and easy to maintain. My chooks took to it on the second night! I put in a wooden perch as my Australorps are heavy ladies and seemed a little restless on the plastic bars. I also redesigned the ‘ladder’ as the ladies struggled with it. The run feels a bit flimsy for the price and it’s not as manoeuvrable in a small urban section. I’d definitely recommend the cube but not the run. The auto door is good too!
Love these products. Makes chooks easy peasy to care for
Great customer service. Clear communication and Fiona was great at answering any questions.
Our 6 chickens are all settled in now. We’re just loving them and two are giving us the most delicious eggs daily. The others are looking very close to laying except for Maree (the only one we have named), she prefers to rule the roost and find ways to fly over the fence. 😀 The Eglu is perfect, easy to clean and dry as a bone inside. The covers are great when the West Coast rain falls! We can’t speak more highly of our set-up - thank you.
I am so happy I choose the Eglu. Super easy to look after and safe for the chickens.
Eglu Cube - Large Chicken Coop
Chickens really need to be free range to fit six of them.
Just in the process of transferring the girls at night to get used to the coop. I think getting a light would be helpful as its very dark in the coop, so they cant see the nesting boxes early morning if shut in. The automatic door is great at night, but on overcast days, does not open at sunrise. Apart from those two things, very happy with it. So easy to clean!
Top quality from delivery to installation. I am extremely happy with my purchase - and so are the chooks! Will definitely be purchasing more omlet products in the future.

Keeps Your Flock Safe
Omlet understand the importance of knowing your chickens are safe in their home. That’s why the Eglu is not just an incredibly strong chicken house, but also has a spacious, secure run made from heavy duty steel weld mesh with a unique anti-tunnel skirt that even the most persistent of predators will be deterred from trying to break or dig through.
Eglu coops and runs have been keeping hens all across the globe safe for over 20 years, and no other chicken coop offers such an impressive level of protection.
Comfortable All Year Round
Chicken keepers from New Zealand to Canada and everywhere in between swear by the Eglu Cube. Why? Because it provides protection from all types of weather extremes.
The Eglu has a unique twin-wall insulation system that works in a similar way to double glazing, trapping your hens body heat inside, while ensuring cold air on the outside doesn’t penetrate the sides of the coop.
In summer the same system, in combination with the draught-free ventilation, will keep your hens cool by letting fresh air flow through the chicken house, without blowing straight over the roosting area.
Built to Last
The Eglu Cube chicken house and run is designed for minimal maintenance. Unlike wooden houses, you’ll never need to paint, treat or reroof your Eglu Cube, which will save you plenty of time and money over the years.
The Eglu Cube comes with everything you need to get your chickens moved in straight away. The step-by-step instruction manual and helpful how to build videos ensure building the coop is easy for one or two people.Coop Care
