Chicken Eggspert

Chicken Eggspert (2/19)



  1. Mark 1 cube for sale £350 Ono In good condition, about to be dismantled and thoroughly cleaned. No stand (we made our own) collection 8 miles west of Salisbury. Is listed elsewhere.
  2. Thanks guys. Looks like it’s a mark 1 - does that mean i’m stuck with the wooden bars?
  3. Hoping to pick up an old classic at the end of the week, but it has wooden bars which i’d rather avoid using to be honest. I’ve googled but can’t find anything definitive. Can I buy plastic bars that will fit? Do the ones currently on the eglu website work? Many thanks
  4. I currently have 3 hens in a mark 1 cube but looking to downsize to a classic or go up. We have a run that is only big enough for 3 hens, and I think a smaller coop would give them more space to roam about. Please let me know if you are selling. The mark 1 cube will be for sale when I have found a replacement.
  5. I bought an autodoor in April, it failed in August and I was sent a new control unit. It now appears to have failed again. I’m really not impressed as this was an expensive piece of kit and it’s now failed twice in less than a year. Has anyone else had a similar problem? It tells me the door is blocked and wants to keep opening and shutting constantly, which was the same problem I had in August. I’ve just emailed omlet.
  6. Yes, exactly this! They just messaged me and I feel like a prize idiot. Thank you replying 🙂
  7. Anyone fitted one of these on a mk 1 cube? How did you take off the old door?
  8. I emailed them a few days ago. I feel a bit stupid really because it must be really obvious, but i’d rather to still be able to reuse the original door at some point. Our chickens are arriving on Saturday so really need to get it sorted ASAP.
  9. I found this which seems to suggest the only way is to chop it off, but that seems rather drastic and wouldn’t allow me to put it back on again. https://www.omlet.us/files/public/cube_door_repair_manual.pdf
  10. Sorry, another question 🤦‍♀️ I need to remove the old door on my mk 1 cube to fit the new auto door. But the instructions assume you’ve already managed this. I’ve tried taking the handle off the end, but it’s pretty stuck and i’m worried something will snap. Am I being stupid? There are no instructions about removing the old door and it looks like it must have been preassembled originally.
  11. Thanks both - we don’t have a cat but our neighbours do, so I’ll look for better option. We’re so close to having everything ready, just takes longer with a 1 year old and 4 year old ‘helping’ still need to fit the auto door, rebuild the cube and put a roof on the run.
  12. I already cleaned it with the jeyes fluid 😖 is there a reason not to use it? There are so many products out there i’m Just trying to get my head around which ones to buy.
