Surprisingly quick delivery. Putting together requires the instructions and some common sense but once done really smart coop for 2 hens in our town garden.
Doesn’t look out of place. Very smart and our hens love it.
The coop was delivered promptly to my grandson's house,, it was easy to assemble and promptly put into use. His Silkies love it, easy for him to move around and keep clean.
Very easy to assemble, nice and easy to move around the lawn too.
Love this run chickens are so happy in it. Highly recommend this chook run. Fionna is so helpful each time I have ordered product from her it arrives within two days.
We are moving from Invercargill Back to Nelson & I needed to sort a chook house out for my little silkie hens. Appleton's was amazing, the lady I talked to talked me through the size I needed and then once I had decided I was delighted to get an email to say that Appletons had sorted out a cheaper delivery service for me & I received an $80 refund immediately. The chook house arrived at my daughters house within a few datys and she & my son in law have put it together, it looks awesome!! We are leaving here on Tuesday & I know at the end of the big Journey my wee girls will be in a safe & secure pen. I will be buying my Chook supplies from Appleton's and once we have our own place will add to the Eglu. Thanks again for the awesome service. :)
for my new chicks knowing that they are safe & secure. Delivery was super quick, delivered to me (Nth Waikato) within 2 days!! This is the 3rd coop from Appletons over the years their service is A1.
As first time chicken owners the eglu was perfect - easy to assemble and care for. Our rescue hens - battery farm survivors - have come into their own and love their new home. The advice we received was invaluable and I highly recommend.
Really great once assembled but was a bit of a challenge to assemble
Easy to move and clean
I am happy with it. It is smaller than I imagined and the run hasn't been put together as yet and appears from lying on the ground to be very small too but hopefully it will be ok. Anyway, I'm happy with what I have. My grandson worked the instructions out and did the assembling but he did make the comment the instructions weren't overly clear however, but he did mange to get it together! So the run will go together too in like manner. Plenty of time as the chickens will not be mine till mid July. I'm very much looking forward to that. Thank you.
This coop is by far the best Chicken Coop you can get. It’s a million times better than any fir wood coop which just don’t last. The screw pegs are well worth the money and make your coop really secure. We also purchased the heavy duty cover which we use full time and have kept the light weight one as a spare or for the peak of summer. We just keep a single rescue chicken in ours who was being picked on by other chickens, and she is now super happy and comfy in her easy clean, dry, secure coop.

The slide out dropping tray makes cleaning your small chicken coop simple.
You'll find keeping your Eglu Go 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.
Easy to Clean Plastic Chicken Coop
The Eglu Go 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 out of the hen house and empty into the compost bin - they will make a wonderful fertilizer for your plants. 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 treat your Eglu.
Keep your Chickens Warm in Winter
The Eglu 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 a pocket of air which provides a very effective means of insulating the house.
Cool in Summer
In summer your chickens will be kept cool by the Eglu's draught-free ventilation system, carefully designed to avoid air blowing directly over the roosting area whilst allowing fresh air to circulate.
Eglu Go Chicken Coop keeps your hens cool in the summer, and warm in the winter!
The skirt keeps your chickens safe inside.
Predator Proof Chicken Run
The standard 2m run is 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 unique anti-tunnel skirt lays flat on the ground to prevent animals from digging in. This is a unique feature of Omlet’s chicken runs and is incredibly successful in deterring predators. 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 Screw Pegs.
