Calling Eglu classic owners...info please!

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am planning my WIR and would like to have a classic to join my cube as soon as funds allow - I would like the classic to sit on the outside of the run, with a pop hole, just as my cube will site outside the run. What I need to know is, does the front edge of the cube sit at a straight 90 degree angle to the floor, or does it have a slight backwards tilt? Just that on the photo's I've seen, looks like it has a bit of a backwards tilt, and am wondering if that is the case, how I would bridge the gap between the classic and the side of the WIR to stop Mr Foxy gaining access.


Hope that makes sense, and thanks in advance!

The Eglu Classic certainly wouldn't fit flush to the straight side of a WIR - it does slope back. We've just bought an Omlet WIR and there is a special shaped bit to curve over the gap that you then can attach to the WIR frame. As it is a special Omlet part it also fits over the top of the Eglu to screw down like its original run did. You could make a curved bit of mesh to cover the gap but fixing that to your Eglu is the bit i think would be difficult.

No, don't give up, it can be done, and very easily, see below...




The Classic Just needs to be raised a little at the back to reduce the gap at the front and a small amount of wire-mesh padding to act as a joiner/filler. The chooks don't mind (or care) about the slightly angled bars inside the coop, as chickens roost at night, not sit :wink:.


Must admit these are not my Eglu's, but they were the inspiration for my WIR set-up.
