The Eglu

Designing sustainable product is all about quality of design, fun and changing peoples behavior in a playful fun way. I think this chicken house with run says it all, a pity I live on the 39th floor.

The eglu is a truly innovative chicken house designed specifically for the first time chicken keeper. Modern and stylish – it is the ideal way to keep between 2 and 4 chickens. The eglu comes complete with everything you need to get started. The eglu has roosting bars and a discreet nesting box which can be filled with straw or shredded paper. You can collect freshly laid eggs through the eggport on the side of the house.

  • Easy to Clean – The eglu is quick and easy to clean with a slide out dropping tray. You can wash the smooth surfaces with a hose. Unlike wooden housing you do not need to treat your eglu, saving you time and money.
  • Insulation – The twin walled insulation and draught free ventilation keeps your chickens warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
  • The run – Made from strong steel weld mesh impossible for predators to break. A unique anti-tunnel skirt sits flat on the ground and prevents animals from digging in. The run has spacious vertical sides and gives your chickens plenty of room.
  • Feeders and Drinkers – These are easy to fill and keep clean. The covered feeder helps keep the feed dry and reduce spillage. The drinker holds enough water for over a weekend.
  • Chicken Delivery Area – They even can deliver and install the eglu complete with organically fed chickens through a large part of the UK. If you live outside our chicken delivery area then we will provide you with a comprehensive list of your local breeders and a guide to buying chickens.
