Disclosure: The Eglu Go UP Chicken Coop  was received from Omlet,  for review purposes only. All thoughts and words in this post are my own and I was not paid to endorse it. I am only voicing my opinion about this product.

It’s no secret to our regular readers that I’m a nut when it comes to animals.  I love them.  I’ve had dogs and cats, guinea pigs, mice, turtles, love birds a conure and a pot bellied pig. While growing up, we always had dogs and cats, and while living on 17 acre’s, a Prairie Dog along with the neighbors cows and horses. What I haven’t had yet are chickens, and I’ve wanted backyard hens for as long as I can remember.  Now my dream will be coming true!  Thanks to Omlet, the makers of the Eglu Go Up Chicken Coop… before you know it I’ll be collecting fresh eggs each day!

So what makes an Eglu Go UP Chicken Coop so special? “The latest Eglu to join the collection, the Eglu Go UP Chicken Coop makes keeping chickens easy and fun. This plastic chicken house comes with optional wheels, making it easy to move, and the fox-resistant chicken run is extendable to give hens even more room. Easy to clean and insulated, the Eglu Go UP is a superb hen house for up to four birds.”

The coop can be purchased alone, or with a 2mm run, 3mm run…with or without wheels. I received a coop in Leaf Green with Wheels and a 2mm run.

About Omlet – the makers of the Eglu Go Up Chicken Coop

It all started in 2003 when four friends met at the Royal College of Art in London. They designed a revolutionary new chicken house which made it simpler to keep chickens in gardens. It looked rather like an igloo and in a moment of punning genius that would define the next generation of chicken keepers, they named it the Eglu and an icon was born. Since then Omlet’s designs have delighted thousands of pets and their owners around the world through their uncompromising attention to detail and innovative ideas.

Putting the Eglu Go UP Togethger

The coop arrived about a week ago.  It came in 3 boxes, ready for assembly.  My son, helped me (well if I’m totally honest – he did most of the work), put it together.  After a couple of bumps in the road, I had myself a chicken coop!  So what were those bumps you ask?

First, several of the coops that Omlet has to offer, have the same parts.  Each box included instructions.  (In addition, I found a YouTube video with assembly directions.) Once we realized why the video and written instructions didn’t sync, we were back on track. This was totally a USER MISTAKE!

Second, many of the nuts and bolts did not want to cooperate.  The bolts were just a fraction larger than they should be (or if you want to look at it from another standpoint, the nuts were just a fraction smaller than they needed to be.) After some not so nice words muttered under our breath and a smashed knuckle,  the decision was made to go to the harware store, and for $2 bucks our problem was resolved. THIS WAS THE FAULT OF THE MAUFACTURER OF THE NUTS AND BOLTS.

By the way, the Eglu Go UP also come in purple.

So excited that the coop is here and put together.  Stay tuned!

  1. Wish our city would allow us to have chickens, but this is a great idea for anyone would would like to get and raise chickens – especially for eggs.

  2. I THINK THIS WOULD BE A GREAT TEACHING ITEM FOR PEOPLE JUST STARTING OUT WITH CHICKENS,I DONT KNOW HOW US OLDER CHICKENEERS WOULD TAKE TO IT.

  3. Love the title! I thought my web browser was on a different language or something. I wish I could be able to buy this but living in a flat will make it impossible to have chicken.

  4. Oh my that’s so cool and fun! I had chicks as pets before but they were decapitated by a neighbor’s pet cat. I think my cage was not secure enough. The Eglu looks safer and better!

  5. I don’t know whether I could do this but I do know some people who do. And my uncle raises chickens. That’s so awesome that they have created a coop like this that’s more portable and can be used in different places.

  6. The Eglu Go UP Chicken Coop looks like great chicken coop. It is to bad you had to go to the hardware store but at least it was only a couple dollars to fix the manufacture mistake. I really love the idea of having fresh eggs for breakfast. Thanks for sharing the chicken coop and your honest opinion.

  7. Wow, that’s quite a fancy chicken coop! Those chickens are living quite large and comfortable! It’s always daunting to have to assemble something. I’m glad you got it put together.

  8. Our city has just started allowing home owners to have chickens within the city limits. This would look so cute in our yard, now I just have to convince my husband to let me have a chicken.

  9. How great is THAT!? I grew up with chickens in the yard. Would so love to have them again. Nothing beats fresh eggs. That looks like a great way to keep chickens safe from predators which is a huge problem where I live now. Of course, my HOA is a huge problem too. 🙁

  10. Now that is pretty cool. When I was a child we raised chickens and it was so much fun and we always had fresh eggs more than we could eat ourselves. I guess that is why we always did so much baking with all those extra eggs.

  11. If we were allowed to have chickens here, I’d like something like this. Of course, my three rescued Treeing Walker Coonhounds would likely stress them out, so perhaps it’s good we can’t have them.

  12. OH, that is so cool! Congratulations on your new addition! I have my hands full with a cat and three bulldogs. Animals are the best!

  13. I would love to raise Chickens and what a great way to do it! The birds are happy and all of the mess in contained. Thanks for sharing

  14. Wow, this is an awesome chicken coop! I love that it includes everything that you need. 🙂 I hope to one day raise chickens with my kids!

  15. This would be cool to have so we could have a few chickens and fresh eggs. We have always talked about having a place that we would have enough room to have a garden and chickens.

  16. I have chickens and bees. I love they also have Beehaus Brood Frames and Foundations Pack, for a great price. I can’t even make the frames for that price. The chicken coop looks awesome.

  17. I LOVE this! I like how light it is and how easy it looks to move. I know how beneficial chickens are for the garden, I bet this would make it pretty easy to let them ‘in’ this way as it looks tall enough if you plan the garden right.

  18. This is a must as we have spent thousands in just 4 years on wooden coops that rot and fall apart! Thank you so very much!

  19. Looks so neat and easier to care for, wish they were around the last time I did coupes. Thanks for sharing a great idea.

  20. These are nice, to have so they are more mobile, in our area people build wooden ones as they are permanent . This would be great for your pets also to enjoy the outdoors.

  21. I love this Eglu Go UP! So easy to set up, maintain and move around. This would be so easy for young children to take care of chickens. I’d love to get one of the for my grandson to put in his backyard.

  22. My brother and his wife just started raising chickens and this would be so perfect for them. It sure would make things a lot easier.

  23. That is super nice anyone that has chickens this would be awesome to have. These are very compared to the chicken coops my grandpa had when I was little.
