Decided raising the coop would improve access for collecting the eggs and make a space for a dry dust bath underneath. Frame arrived promptly and assembly was easy. Very pleased.
We found that our hens yearned to go up in the world, so we bought this in addition to the coop. It has the added advantage of making the coop easily movable and not killing the grass underneath. It took our hen ladies some days to learn to use the ladder. To begin with they just lined up the entrance and flew in.
Much easier now to clean and check on the girls. It took a couple of days for the girls to get used to their new ladder but now they seem to really like it.
This is my 2nd Go, this time a Go-Up without the run or wheels as I have Omlet fencing. Perfect for my Shavers. These hens, bred to lay an egg a day each during short lives, deserve the best accommodation and I am happy they are secure at night. Very easy for me to move and clean. The Go with run and wheels is now a nursery for my lovely Dorking, a heritage breed.
Great to finally get our Eglu off the ground! Happy chooks! Quick and easy to put together. We love watching our girls go up and down the ladder- very graceful! 😊
This is the best coop it is my third house and I'm happy with them all so easy to clean
A great purchase to convert our GO to a GO UP.
