Introducing my Eglu!

Hello again!

Thanks for returning.

This post is to introduce my Eglu.

I have a green Eglu Cube with a 3 metre run;

It took 3 1/2 hours to put up in the hot, hot sun. Single handed.

Bought this off EBay for just over £700, Omlet themselves were selling it reduced because a woman had changed her mind after setting it up.

It came with two shades as well as the 3m run, feeder and water.

We originally placed the shades like so;

However, now we have moved the side shade to the top, near the run’s door.

I bought a padlock for the run door from my local corner shop and placed it halfway down the door.

Here’s the easily removable poop trays which simply slide below the roosting box – couldn’t be any easier.

Here are the roosting bars;

Here is the nest box. I lined with a couple of newspaper sheets before adding the shredded paper;

The layout is simple inside the cube;

    What a great introduction to the Eglu Cube!

    Great pictures & well done for setting it up by yourself…

    We’ve just got new plastic panels (as ours were getting old & faded) so we’re good as new again!
