Welcome to Omlet's World of Eglus

If you've been thinking about keeping hens for a while but just don't know where to start, then I'm confident that the Eglu hen houses are just what you've been looking for. Made by Omlet the Eglu and its big brother, the EgluCube, are truly innovative in their design and are the ideal way to keeping happy hens with the minimum amount of fuss (and mess!).

We are authorised by Omlet to sell their hen houses. Ordering from us is as simple as ordering from Omlet and at no extra cost but you get the personalised touch, with ongoing help and support being just a phone call or email away, and we can come out and see you if necessary. Your hen house would be delivered direct to your door, straight from the Omlet distribution centre.

All in One Simple Package

The Eglu hen houses are incredibly well thought out so you don't have to worry about a thing. It comes complete with roosting bars and a discreet nesting box which can be filled with straw, shavings or shredded paper. Your daily egg collecting task is simplicity in itself with access via the handy eggport located on the side of the house. Letting your chickens out in the morning and shutting them up at night is done by using the handle on the top of the Eglu. Sound easy? You'd be right - it is!

If you're hen keeping for the very first time we can supply you with our hen starter kit which not only includes the Eglu or EgluCube but also all the essentials for feeding your hens and keeping them happy and healthy.

Quick & Easy Maintenance

Keeping hens in traditional wooden housing can be a messy job. With straw on the floor mixed with hen droppings, feed and water it can get pretty unpleasant pretty quickly. Bring on the Eglu! Its slide out tray collects all the droppings and you can dispense these straight into your composter to make fantastic fertilizer for the rest of your garden. The Eglu lid can be removed to give simple access for a complete clean out. It has smooth plastic surfaces that can be hosed down with no awkward corners or absorbent materials, and unlike wooden houses there's no need to treat your Eglu which saves you time and money in the future.

Keeping Your Hens Cool & Cosy

The twin walled insulation and draught free ventilation keep your hens warm during the winter and cool during the summer. The run also has a large, detachable shade that shelters your hens from the wind, sun and rain - an essential item for hens in Scotland when we can often have 4 seasons in one day!

Keeping Mr Fox Out

The run is made from strong steel weld mesh and has a anti-tunnel skirt that sits flat on the ground preventing animals digging their way into the run. The run can also be extended in 1m sections if you want to give your hens more room.

Grub & Glug

These are the unique food and water containers that come with your Eglu housing. They are easy to fill from outside the Eglu and keep the feed clean and dry, while avoiding spillage. These hold enough food and water for at least 2 days so you can leave your hens to look after themselves if you're going away for a weekend.

Moving Home

Both the Eglu and EgluCube are easily moved so your hens can move home in a matter of minutes... if only it was that simple for us humans! The hen houses can be set up on grass or rough ground, or you might prefer to have a permanent place in your garden and use wood chippings, or the latest technology - rubber landscape chippings.
