  1. I'm gutted, after years of keeping brahmas we have had two thefts of my chickens in just 6 months! Despite my partner building a much more secure area to keep our girls in the thieves broke in again over the weekend and took my 3 new baby Isabella brahmas, and tried to remove my entire eglu cube MK1...Absolutely heartbroken at these thieves taking our beloved pets..The first 5 they took this spring were very tame and all had names.....I had only brought these three a few weeks back as it took me a while to get my head around keeping them again, and feeling that they might be safe enough in their new enclosure...This time the thieves have also removed the roof, side door, both poop trays and the water bowl and door pins from our cube and taken them too. They lifted the whole house and run and couldn't get it over the enclosure that my partner had made for our girls, so just left it on its side with the fox proof run bent under the weight..Police hace once again been notified over this happening. But lord knows what they can do to get my girls back ...We have scoured the local lanes for the stolen cube bits, and Omlet apparently no longer stock any of these parts, despite my partner only buying the cube as brand new for me a few years ago it would appear that I have no way to repair it now too. Please if anyone local in Herts, Beds or Bucks has any spares of these components lying about could you let me know? And please be extra vigilant with your chickens and their homes now too xxx
  2. Hi, I currently have the Go Up and a 2m walk in run for four hybrid chooks, but they keep fighting to get into the egg laying depression, and squabble a lot at night, also if one goes a little broody, she monopolises the egg depression. So I’m thinking of getting them more space by extending the 2m run to a 4m and getting one of the new cubes instead of the go up (putting the cube inside the run rather than hung off the outside). I'm wondering though, if the egg divider can be left out of the new cube so that it’s all open plan inside ? Paul
  3. I’ve hatched my first ever chicks this year and they are now ready to move into a coop. I’d like an Eglu go up or cube with run and can collect. I’m in Walsall, West Midlands but will travel within reason!
  4. Hello. I have 6 6-week old chickens and they will not go into the cube at night. Only one has managed to walk up the steps, I have yet to see the others, even with a little coaxing. Any tips to get them to head up at night? I've had to climb in and get them in there or carry each one and put them in through the back. I'd like to stop doing this. I do not have the option to set up a light for the night. I think keeping them shut in for a few days in the cube would not work as I have no where to put food/water. Thx
  5. Hi All, I am looking for a cube for sale and I can collect week / weekend. Anybody looking to sell, then please contact me
  6. Hi looking for a used Cube in reasonable condition thanks
  7. New Eglu Cube owner here! Any suggestion on how to keep the coop cooler in the hot summer heat? We have the Eglu Cube attached to a walk-in run... The run is covered with a tarp, but the Cube gets a lot of sun. I've got a remote thermometer inside the cube, and it's gotten as hot as 105 degrees F in the last few days. We have a fan blowing through the run to keep it tolerant... The chicks are only 8 week or so old, and they stay in the run all day. They are doing fine in the shade we've given them. At night it cools down enough to be fine for them inside the coop. I'm wondering if they'll ever go back inside to lay eggs in the nesting area once they're old enough. I wouldn't think they would go back in of it's too hot... Any suggestions? Thanks!
  8. Hi, I’m looking to upgrade my Eglu Go Up to a Cube. Is anyone looking to downgrade and interesting in swapping (I’ll pay a supplement ogbviously!)? Or does anyone have a cube for sale? I’m based near Billingshurst, West Sussex.
  9. Excellent condition Omlet Cube Mk 1 in green for sale at £400. No fading and has been well looked after. Was only used for about a year as I downsized to an Eglu. Please PM me for any additional photos (or email tom@omlet.co.uk who can contact me if you’re not a forum member). Buyer to collect but we are happy to dismantle for you, ready for collection if required. I also have the original instruction manual to help you with reassembly. We are on the Worcester / Gloucestershire border, about 5 miles from Tewkesbury.
