Question for the original cube MK1 owners re run door

Recommended Posts

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

Some folks made a door along the side, which they found easier. The original run door on the cube #1 run was smaller - there was a 2nd version which was twice the size - it was brought out after we all complained.

I could do with the bigger door but I guess i’m far too late to buy one from Omlet.  I’ll have a look at the links and see what I can do.  Thanks for searching for me 🤗

Think the 2nd one will work for us.  We have taken out one section of run so that we can get the whole thing in the patio so have a spare arch.  Our grass died off completely in the summer drought and I think the ground is too muddy atm.  Will be much easier to clean with decent access.  Thank you!

Once you click search, you can adjust your search question to get more precise answers. For instance, choose ALL words instead of ANY.

OK, so just found examples of the smaller and larger run doors on ebay; hopefully these pics will work

First (smaller version) of cube run door:

From memory, the original smaller door was the same size as the door on the Eglu Classic mark 2 run.... daft really!

We have the small one.  Will wait a while and then tackle the subject with Hubby.  He’s still reeling at the cost of the chickens, wood-chips, covers, etc. He forgot that we had to start again after a long break and would need to spend more than £20 on a couple of hybrids
