I have one and it's fab. Hosed it out yesterday and it dried quickly. The walk in run is secure and had no problems. I can highly recommend it. Sorry, that wasn't what you wanted to hear was it?!

They look fab. I've had the original version of the ordinary round one for 11 years and it's still going strong - so well built I can't justify trading up to a cube though I really want one.

Can you really keep up to 10 chickens in a cube? I've been reading up this morning. I'm a chick newbie, am only planning on up to say 5. There doesn't seem enough room in there for 10!

I have nine in mine. Two very large fowl (Cochins), two small (pekins) and five others. They get on very well and snuggle unde each other when it's chilly or when they fancy a pile up laying. I have a very extended run for the times they're kept in and they usually free range outside all day, almost every day.

I want one too but got an Omlet classic that's still got years of use in it and the chickens love so I'm not changing. The Eglu classic is great and so easy to clean.
