I live on the Gloucestershire / Worcestershire border.

  8. 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
  9. As title above really, kids keen to get a couple of hens and the eglu's look great.

    Just wanted to share; we purchased the hentronix for our eglu after seeing a You tube vid on how to fit it to the Eglu. It was super simple and is working great! Really love it in case anyone is looking for an auto door! :)))
  12. Green eglu classic with 2m run, feeders, drinkers, some Omlet netting, shades and water proof cover. Will also include 2 x 20g waterproof food stores for pellets and corn. £150 collection only
  13. Hi everyone! My first post on here although I've been a chicken owner for about two and half years now and enjoying it! We've seen a fox recently in the garden in the early morning - in the run itself in fact - my daughter scared it off after it jumped down from the wall into the netted area. Thankfully we have a Go attached to the wire run so it wasn't able to get near our three hybrid girls. But this morning I found the end of the plastic raincover nearest the coop has been torn at various places, lots of little teeth-holes (I think?!) and one of the toggles pulled off and the water drinker was squint too. I suspect the fox has attempted to get access from the top of the run and tried to pull off the cover, probably aiming to get to the small gap there is between the top of the coop and the wire run. Has anyone else ever experienced this and any ideas how to either deter the fox or reinforce this top area of the coop/run to make sure he doesn't find a weakness? I meant to take photos but was in a rush this morning and forgot - I'll post some later for evidence if required!
  14. Purple eglu classic. This is the pet version but can be easily converted for chickens with the kit from omlet. Good condition, approx a year old. Has a few scratches as with any used item but full working order. No run. £140. Collection from chesham, buckinghamshire
  15. Hi all, My wife (Trish Fearnley) was quite active on here at one point and we had acted as a holiday home for hens a few times locally a few years ago. She sadly died earlier this year and it's taken me a while to decide that I don't want to keep hens any more. Anyway, this leaves me with two Eglus - one an old (green) Mk1 classic (I think) and one a more recent (purple) classic (slightly bigger than the old one). There is also a run and some worse-for-wear netting/fencing as well if any use, plus a water feeder and a very battered food feeder ("food feeder" sounds daft but you'll know what I mean) and an amount of organic layers pellets. The Eglus have been cleaned since the last occupants but have since been vacant over winter, so they need a good wash (power-washer for outside would be ideal). I'd like to give these away to someone just starting or wanting to expand, etc. so that they are a benefit to someone. You'd need to collect (or arrange transport) from Leeds (LS25). Is anyone interested, or know someone who is starting out, perhaps?
  16. Hi all, Been thinking about keeping chickens for years but, for one reason or another, I never took the plunge. Recently, we have - we set up an eglu classic on hard wood chippings and yesterday we brought home two hens (a Warren and a Light Sussex). I'm wondering how to clean the hard wood chippings - we've been picking out the bits we can see at the front of the run, but the other end is so hard to get to - really not happy with the run compared to the eglu itself. We've raked over, picked up big bits of poo and we've put Stalosan down too. Should we hose/watering can the chips at night maybe? Would it be worth putting easichick down on top of the chips? Feeling a bit anxious as we have a small garden with neighbours close by and I want the run and coop clean so there's no smells - we're already getting lots of flies and it's only the first 24 hours (think it's because it's so dry and hot at the moment though). Thanks in advance for your help.
  17. 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.
  18. Hi, I though I’d got a bargin, as I could convert my Eglu Classic to the Rabbit hutch no problems !! But alas, I get it home and find out it’s a Mark 1, which the convertion kit doesn’t fit 😡😡 Has anybody found any kits for a Mark 1 for Rabbits or managed to convert it themselves ? Also my droppings tray is short, is this normal or has it been modified ? There is also wire underneath, is this standard ? Thanks for your help 😎
  19. So I officially completed our WIR and Eglu set up which we started last November. I would love to see other people's WIR setups - I got a lot of ideas for this one from the old WIR photo thread, it was so lovely to see everyone's creative DIY adventures and how people had solved problems such as connecting the Eglu to a wooden run. We made it all from scratch with the help of my lovely FIL. It's about 17ft long and 4.5 ft wide. It cost us more than we initially thought - about £400 but worth every penny. It has a 1ft internal wire skirt as protection from digging foxes which is pegged down with plastic ground pegs so they don't rust. The gutter leads to a water butt with a gravity fed drip-line waterer for the back border of the garden which gets very dry. We also got a Hentronix door opener which we LOVE. The Aubiose bedding is amazing - it looks a bit messy at the moment as it has some old bark chippings mixed in which is what the hens were on previously. Future plans are to add some fairylights using the Hentronix battery and possibly a little shelf level that they can sit (and probably poop) on. The ladies love it. Unfortunately my original beautiful trio of ladies only got to enjoy it for a few months before the fox attack But Rita and Megatron seem to be enjoying it and they deserve the best after living the first 70 weeks of their life inside. Excuse the garden mess - the wheelbarrow and blue tarp are covering up the summer veg patch and we are having the patio re-laid. We've had kerb stones around the coop which makes it look really neat and keeps all of the decorative woodchip in place. Enjoy! Please share photos of your set-ups and WIR's for inspiration!
