  1. It is covered with a mesh, just not covered as in to keep out the rain. So not covered as in under cover, but covered as in not uncovered. Hope that makes sense?! (The cube run inside it is rain proof though).
  2. Thanks - I'd forgotten about that. I've never seen one other than in photos. Omlet - how about a classic up?!
  3. Thanks everyone. You've confirmed my suspicions about the Go not being as robust. I still love the design of the Go Up though. Sigh. If the Go was the same material as the Classic and the Cube, there'd be no stopping me!
  4. I recently decided to branch out and get some Speckled Sussex Bantams. I think they are unhinged though! They absolutely will not sleep in a house. My set up is a cube and a classic in a walk in run. Everybody gets locked into the walk in run at night. My existing flock sleep in the cube and the newbies have a choice of cube or classic - they were kept in the classic when they were babies, so they should be used to it. But no. No matter how many times I try to convince them otherwise, they insist on roosting on top of the cube and make a disgusting mess pooing all over it. Every night
  5. Thanks ANH I had been looking at this one, before your better school table suggestion: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00EF3VAPC/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=2CBCGE3EDBFOW&coliid=II1O8PWM10LQG It's almost eglu colours!
  6. That looks great ANH. Just need to try and find one now! What would you say would be the smallest length and width that would work? I know the classic is meant to be 80 x 80cm, but I get the impression that you could get away with smaller than this? Thanks
  7. I've read reviews of the Go saying that the plastic is more fragile and can crack - something my Classics have had plenty of encouragement to do, (small children), but never have. Omlet assure me they are made of the same material and that the Go is just as robust as the Classic. Really?
  8. I have a Cube and I have a Classic (the other one doesn't count because it has guinea pigs in it). I need (no, really) another house. Do I get another Classic or do I get a Go instead, so I have the option of turning it into a Go Up? I really like the idea of an Up, but I'm worried that I won't like the Go as much as the Classic. HELP!!! I need to decide today and I'm not doing very well...
  9. I was planning to get a Go Up, but I'm having a last minute wobble about not liking the Go as much as the Classic... (also, him indoors is less likely to notice there is an extra one if it is a Classic too like the others!)
  10. I'm looking for a table to put my eglu classic on in an uncovered run. Does anyone have any suggestions of where to get one that is a good fit size wise. If it matched the green of the eglu, that would be even better! Thanks
  11. A bit late answering your question, but I haven't been on here for absolutely ages. I have a Harrod Horticultural run - 3m x 6m Overall, I'd say it is very good value for money for the size of run that your chickens end up with. It has good points and bad points though: + lots of space for the cost compared to other runs + u"Ooops, word censored!"trusive - we have the aluminium tube one and barely notice it is there + you can get spare poles if needed + it is high enough to walk in comfortably - don't bother with the extruded mesh sides - rats chewed big (fox sized) holes in i
  12. I have mostly always kept Pekins, with a few Wyandotte Bantams too, but I have been offered some Speckled Sussex Bantam chicks. Has anyone kept both? How would you say they compare, in size and character? I LOVE Pekins, but I'm very tempted!
  13. My excuse for it taking 6 years to sort out is that we have no outside tap. So, I bought a connector for the kitchen tap, (potential for serious malfunction I know), attached the existing 25m hose to reach the end of the garden, bought another 50m hose and connected that to the end to reach through the garage, across the drive, through the fence, across the allotment and into the chicken run Should the connector slip off the tap, we will have a very wet kitchen by the time I get there to sort it out!
