  1. Is anyone selling a mark one cube run extension? Thanks
  2. Looking for a stand and run to convert a go to a go up, based in Bucks but happy to travel
  3. Have missed two on eBay this week. There are foxes in my area that have decimated my free-range flock in the last month. Looking for a walk-in run so I can keep the rest safe as the evenings get darker. I’m based in mid-Wales but willing to travel if price is right. Thank you.
  4. Hello all, Total newbie here hoping to get our first chickens in mid-March. We have the Eglu Cube with a 3 m run. We have been advised that, if we don't want to move it - wood chip is a good way to go and to do this properly we should put some weed barrier down etc. We wondered if anyone had any advice/recommendations/photos of their set ups to give us some ideas and inspiration!!! Thanks in advance,
  5. I’m really hoping that some of you have better memories or forum search skills than me.. Years ago, there was a discussion on how to make the original MK1 cube run more accessible for cleaning. Someone came up with a way of opening the full height of the run-end as a door to get inside. I never bothered as I was moving the run around the garden regularly and had a little person who fitted through the tiny door. Years on, the tiny person is as big as me and my shoulders protest at moving a cube with 3m of run. Does anyone still know how to convert the end of the run into a door? (I searched but got a hit number that was bigger than my bank balance) Thanks
  6. Hi, I'm on the hunt for a cube (Mk 1 preferred) with at least 3 metre run. We are in Croydon/South London so can consider areas close-by (Surrey etc) or can send a courier if the right set up is available.
  7. Hi guys, I am in Llanelli, but willing to travel within 50 miles to collect an Omlet set up. Preferably Classic or Cube with run and even an inclosure if available. Would like water and food containers etc.. if possible. Any extras greatly appreciated. Price needs to be reasonable for the product. Some people don't realise that Omlet are giving 20% off at shows and are asking too much money for us. As an example a Brand New Cube with 2 metre run is £600 delivered by Omlet if you attend any show that they are at. And obviously the classic is cheaper. Please feel free to send me any information or photos or call or message me. We will even take female chickens with the set-up if you are looking to rehome a loved pet. Thanks. Matthew
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
