What a service - from being ordered to delivery - I had this within 4-5days - very prompt service. Followed the online video to put it together. My husband and I did this together and it was very simple to follow step by step. The chicken are yet to arrive but I am very excited to see them housed and using their new environment. Thank you Appletons and I know that I will purchase some more accessories to go with it.
This is our 3rd Eglu, planned as quarantine or temporary jail as needed. We have 8 hybrid chickens, 4 at 2.5 yrs, and 4 just laying so each cohort has own house and free range in sequence. Eglus are warm so they lay year around, but we have added custom uv resistant transparent covers over the 2m pens against Southland weather allowing ventlation at ground level. Each coop moves easily to fresh lawn grass daily, with droppings collected for our garden. Great support given from Appletons for the odd replacment parts needed.
Can't wait to get chickens for our new chicken house. Great customer service. Thank you Appletons!
Fantastic shelter for my chickens, love it.. Great service as rang directly rather than ordering onsite, arrived very fast when it arrived new stock arrived.
Our Eglu Go Up arrived very quickly. Well within the delivery dates which was brilliant. I had to wait for my husband & son to put it together. They “wanted to do this for me” as I have a bad back. I pointed out I could do it happily, but no, they wanted to do it. I love the colour. It’s more of a pinky purple. My role was to lay the parts out and hand screws and ties when needed. I also watched the videos from other owners the night beforehand. Very useful. I’m more of a “show me how to” rather than a read the instructions person.
An hour, I discovered, is the limit, my husband and his 23 year old son can work on a flat pack project together. Even with snacks & drinks provided.
The coop, with run extension, took three nights to construct. With handles. It is a wonderful thing to behold. I love it. It has been sitting in the garden now for two weeks and this evening my bantam chicks arrive. We miscalculated their hatching, but all good. 10 little black frizzy things. From there we should get 4-5 little girls. The boys go back to the farm… for breeding. Not eating!
So far so good.
P.S. we get wild quail around our place, I saw them around the Eglu the other morning. Eyeing it up as a home maybe?
While I love the product it does live up to the reviews of being slow and painful to assemble. Once done it’s great and my 4 chickens quickly made it home. Wish the run was as bigger as really too small for the capacity of the coop. Yes you can spend a fortune paying for additional run but the chickens aren’t suppose to take years to pay off. It was ok for us as we have it inside a larger run for most days when we can let them roam more freely. I set it up on a ridiculously windy day and it was extremely protected in the coop so that was great.
I love this its excellent to keep clean and easy to move them around hey are happy in their nesting box-no problem with the ladder It was tricky to put together not impossible but does take time- I definitely recommend Youtube tutorial
Eglu Go UP is a premium coop for a few special chickens. I have both the Go UP and the Eglu Cube. The Eglu Cube is very specious but I needed to get the Go UP as mixing 2 chicken species turned out disastrous for one of our new birds.
The assembly of Go UP was very similar to constructing the Cube. Having built the Cube already, assembly went smoothly. I am very particular so it took me about 4 hours to fully assemble including the run needing to get all the clips in exactly the rows indicated in the manual.
The amount of space is great both under the coop and inside. The run fencing is good and will protect the chickens at night.
Cleaning is easy. Just remove the back of the coop, then the trey, dump the dropping, and hose down any remains.
The reason for a 4 star, is that I would improve the method for fixing the artificial laying area (uses 4 pins). I really like how the laying area is done in the Cube. Also, I like the Cube's water tray and would prefer that over the Go UP's water tray.
Otherwise, this is a great coop for up to 4 chickens (I have 3 for this coop).
First up: Appletons are great to deal with! We got the Eglu Go Up with an extra metre of enclosure and covers so that both bits have shade or rain cover. We were thinking: ready-made "chicken-tractor". Not quite, but we're happy with it as an attractive flat lawn home for our small flock. Coop is easy to clean, plus with the double-skin walls muffle night time noise while keeping our chooks cosy. Great to quarantine lively new flock arrivals, too. Some design improvement for better access to some areas is possible, which we'll share with Appletons in email. Loving fresh eggs and the sweet chookie characters. They sure get a kick out of flitting from the top of the stairs out of their coop into the run area. Enjoy!
Very easy to assemble and I am excited to introduce my chooks tomorrow.

Comfortable Nest Box
One of the best things about being a chicken keeper is the fresh eggs your hens will provide you with every day; without a doubt the best eggs you will ever taste! Your hens will sleep snugly on the perfectly rounded roosting bars and they’ll love the integrated nesting box in the Eglu Go UP. You can fill the nest with bedding and look forward every morning to collecting eggs by opening the large door at the back.
Run Keeps Hens Safe
The chicken run for the Eglu Go UP is made from strong steel weld mesh that will resist the most persistent of predators, and the dark green coating will blend into your garden beautifully. A secure run gives you peace of mind that your chickens are safe while you’re not at home or spending time in the garden with them. Eglu runs have been rigorously tried and tested for over 15 years. Click play on the image to see the difference between an Eglu run and standard chicken wire. 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 foxes and other predators. You can position the Eglu hen house and run on grass, wood chippings or soil, and if the area is uneven you can secure the anti-tunnel skirt to the ground with Omlet’s Screw Pegs.
Stable-Style Run Doors
The Eglu Go UP has a convenient, and practical stable-style door at the end of the run. The top and bottom open independently of each other, and both have run pins to secure them in an open or closed position. Open both doors when you want to allow your chickens out in the garden or to get full access to the run, or keep the bottom door closed if you want to do a quick feeder and drinker refill without your hens escaping.
A Comfortable Temperature All Year Round
Eglu coops are used by chicken keepers all over the world from New Zealand,to Canada and everywhere in between. Why? Because they provide protection from all types of weather extremes. The Eglu Go UP keeps your hens warm in winter. It has a unique twin-wall insulation system that works in a similar way to double glazing in your house, by trapping a pocket of air between two surfaces. This is an extremely effective way of insulating the coop, making sure the body heat from your chickens has nowhere to go! In summer the same insulation will keep your chickens cool, and the draught-free ventilation system has been designed to keep fresh air circulating in the coop at all times, without air blowing directly over the roosting and nesting area.
Ergonomic Ladder Grips
The new and improved ladder design has larger, non-slip rungs that your chickens will find comfortable to grip in all seasons. The durable, all-weather grips simply clip on to the rungs of the Eglu Go UP ladder to provide a large non-slip surface. The grips are especially useful for older, less agile chickens, or for young hens who are perhaps using the ladder for the first time, but will be appreciated by chickens of all ages. The Eglu Ladder Grips have been a standard feature of the Eglu Go UP chicken coop since October 2019 and are fully compatible with all Eglu Go UP coops bought before this date.
Includes Feeder, Drinker & Egg Boxes
The Eglu Go UP is the perfect coop for the experienced and first time chicken keeper. You get lots of free extras with this modern hen house! An innovative no-spill feeder and drinker that are designed to hang neatly to the run, maximising floor area and protecting food from rain come with every Eglu Go UP. They are also dishwasher proof, making cleaning super easy. The biggest reward of an Eglu chicken coop, of course, are the free eggs you'll be treated to every morning. Nothing beats that! You will receive 10 Omlet Egg Boxes, suitable for storing your eggs or giving away four at a time to family and friends.

Add a Run or Connect To an Omlet Walk-In Run
You can extend the predator proof run at any time with run extension packs in approximately 1m long sections, made of the same strong steel weld mesh as the Eglu run. You can use the extra space to add fun treat dispensing toys, like the Peck Toy or Caddi Chicken Treat Holder. Another popular option for providing your hens with secure space to exercise is to connect your coop to a Walk-In Chicken Run. These extremely popular runs offer the benefit of added height so you can go into the run and hang out with your hens. It’s a great solution if you are not able to let your chickens free range in the garden during the day. The dark green mesh will also blend in beautifully, so that the chickens’ home can be a natural part of the garden. You can even accessorise your run with wooden perch or a modern Chcken Swing!Add a Run Extension
