My plan is to purchase an Eglu Mk2.  I'm probably now considering question 100 when I'm still working on issue number 5! 

Inside the Mk2 model, the nesting area is separated with a panel with a sliding door. From what I can see, this differs to a previous model, where the area was open.

What's your experience with this panel and door or a cube that is not segregated inside?

As per my other post I don't have experience of a Mk2 cube, but the Mk1 cube did have a divding wall, with a large hole in it so the hens could get in and out the nestbox. I used to take the wall out as my very large hens preferred to just step into the nesting box, added to which it was a bit of a hiding place for red mite, under the wall.  The downside is that some birds would then roost in the nesting box which isn't ideal (poo in the nesting material), but overcome by putting flower pots or similar in there at night if it becomes a real problem.
