Eglu Go Up Chicken Coop
The latest Eglu to join the collection, the Eglu Go UP Chicken Coop makes keeping chickens easy and fun. This plastic chicken house comes with optional wheels, making it easy to move, and the fox-resistant chicken run is extendable to give hens even more room. Easy to clean and insulated, the Eglu Go UP is a superb hen house for up to four birds.
Fresh Eggs Every Day
New to keeping chickens? Don't get your feathers in a twist. The Eglu Go UP Chicken Coop comes complete with everything you need to start your new hobby. Perfect for the first-time henkeeper, this brand new Eglu chicken coop not only looks fabulous, but it is easy to clean, straightforward to use, and suitable for up to four chickens. Hens will love the plastic roosting bars and integrated nesting box. Simply fill with bedding and look forward to collecting your first eggs by opening the door at the back.
Easy to Clean Chicken Coop
Cleaning your Eglu Go UP Chicken Coop is quick and easy, taking just a few minutes each week to keep it looking spic and span. The plastic roosting bars and nesting area sit on top of a slide-out tray, so all droppings will fall through the slats, onto the tray, which can be removed and emptied straight into the compost bin. (Chicken droppings make brilliant fertilizer for your plants).
For a more thorough clean, the smooth, plastic surfaces of the Eglu hen house can be washed quickly with a hose or pressure washer, and the roosting bars can also be removed and washed down. It's so easy, in fact, that you could get the kids to do it.
The Eglu Go UP chicken house is available with optional wheels. This is highly recommended for anyone wanting to move their Eglu regularly, particularly if you are living on your own. Simply press down both levers with your foot to lift the run, and use the wheels to move the Eglu chicken coop. The wheels can be used with your Eglu Go UP whether you have a chicken run or not. You just need to have the frame to attach them to.
Easy to Move Chicken Run
Choosing to add the optional wheels will make your Eglu Go UP chicken house really easy to move. Although you can choose to keep your Eglu chicken coop in one place, you may want to move it around the garden regularly, to allow your grass to recover, and give hens a new patch of lawn to nibble at. Using the easy foot operated wheel mechanism, one person will be able to simply push or pull the Eglu Go UP around on their own.
Great Height for you and your Hens
The Eglu Go UP chicken house has all the great benefits of the Eglu Go, on legs. Your hens will love to roost up off the ground, sleeping in a warm and cosy hideaway, and having a private area to escape to to lay their eggs. They will quickly learn how to use the ladder to climb up to their home, and the house will act as a sheltered spot for hens to play under too. It's not just the chickens that will love the Go UP though – you will too! You'll find that the convenient height of this hen house makes chicken keeping a delight! There's no need to bend down to clean the Eglu chicken coop or collect the eggs.
A Comfortable Temperature All Year Round for Hens
The Eglu chicken coop 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.
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.
Easy to use Front Door
Letting your chickens out in the morning or securing the Eglu Go UP chicken house at night couldn’t be simpler. Using the handle on the side of the Eglu chicken coop you open and close the door, locking and unlocking is done in one intuitive movement. No fiddly catches or bolts that don't line up. The Eglu Go UP also comes with its own ladder so your chickens won’t have to ruffle their feathers whilst walking down to breakfast or climbing into bed.
Top and Bottom Run Doors Work Independently
Unlike the other Eglu Chicken Runs, the Eglu Go UP chicken house has a stable-style door at one end. The top and bottom open independently from one another, and both have run pins to secure them into a closed or open position. Open both doors to allow your chickens out, or to get full access to the run, or keep the bottom door closed so that you can refill the feeder and drinker or throw in some corn without your hens escaping.
Spacious, Intruder Resistant Chicken Run
The optional (yet recommended) standard 2m chicken run is made from strong steel weld mesh, virtually impossible for predators to break. This means that when you are out and about, you can be sure that your chickens are safe. A unique anti-tunnel skirt sits flat on the ground and prevents animals from digging in, and the dark green coating will blend into your garden beautifully. A 1m extension is also available to add to the chicken run to give your chickens more room.
Your hens will love living in the Eglu Go UP chicken house. They'll be able to pop up and down the ladder as they please, keeping nice and snug when it's time to sleep, and having privacy when they want to lay an egg. If you choose the Eglu Go UP with chicken run, your hens will be able to roam around during the day, safe from foxes, and you can let them have a wander around the whole garden when you're there to watch. With a house like this, all the other chickens in town will be filled with henvy!
How Much Space do I Need for my Eglu Go UP?
Ideally your garden should have a fence all the way round. This will prevent your chickens from wandering into the neighbour's garden and, more importantly, ensure that all the eggs are laid on your side of the fence! The fence should be about 1.5m (5ft) high.
If you do not have grass, it is possible to keep a couple of chickens but you must provide them with a layer of wood chippings to rummage about in as this will give them the right type of surface underfoot.
We want to make it as easy as possible for you to start keeping chickens, which is why you'll get lots of free extras with every Eglu Go UP chicken house. Whichever type of Eglu Go UP you buy, you'll get an innovative feeder and drinker. These fit neatly to the run, maximising floor area, the covered design protects food from rain, and both are dishwasher proof, for ultra easy cleaning. You'll receive 10 Omlet Egg Boxes, suitable for giving away four eggs at a time to family and friends, and easy to follow instructions to help you build your Eglu quickly. If you choose an Eglu Go UP with a chicken run, we'll throw in an all-weather shade, to attach to the run and protect hens from wind and rain. It's very hendy in the summer too, to keep your girls protected from the midday sun.
The biggest reward of an Eglu chicken coop, of course, is the free eggs you'll be treated to every morning. Nothing beats that!
