Thank you for the fantastic egglo chook coup!
"A big thank you to Appletons for the fantastic egglo chook coup and cube. We were unaware of the draw when we purchased the lifestyle block magazine for our son at Christmas. So it was a pleasant surprise when we were told of our good fortune as we have never won anything before, it was very exciting and as our current chook run and house was homemade and near its expiry date it was even more appreciated. Putting up the 6 large cartons was interesting, we enjoyed the unpacking and assembly of the egglo however all though the instructions and diagrams were very good it certainly took a lot longer to assemble than suggested, no doubt to my DIY ability, it was certainly fun seeing it come together. The finished article certainly enhances our backyard and is certainly an improvement of our old and dilapidated chook yard and house. No question about it our chooks love it and 3 eggs from 3 hens a day is great. The portability of the egglo is fantastic and can be easily moved about our lawn and yard regularly. We particularly like the skirt around the cage which prevents other animals and birds annoying or eating our chooks pellets. The cube is very easy to clean being able to remove the nests and the draw below and hose them down. We close of the nest box once we have collected the eggs and reopen in the morning this keeping the straw/shavings clean. Overall we are very pleased with the egglo as are our chooks. We are very grateful to Appletons and think the design and finish of the chook run is brilliant. We would highly recommend the egglo for backyard chook owners or lifestyle blocks. However we would suggest a hinge and chain support on the nest hatch as we have dropped the hatch on bare feet at least twice and as our grandchildren love collecting the eggs when visiting and find the hatch awkward. Once again thank you very much. " Thanks John and Margaret, Whangarei 27th April 2019
Omlet run high rise arrived super quick with good delivery and great communication with the business :) The building challenged us... But was great for a kit set product we got there! Then we ordered the eglu hutch and the shipping was a little annoying considering we brought the run a week prior. Thanks for these great products Appletons!

I love their products and the service is always prompt. My only little grumble would be the cost of the courier......a little expensive.

Arrived very promptly , the instructions were a little difficult to follow initially but finally managed to work it out. I did find the top gate closure did not slot into the hole , perhaps I got the wrong bit of pole but I did try them all , just drilled another hole closer to the top fixed the problem. Did adapt it a little to suit my plan in regards to placing the gate but is working well

The second fence went up much more quickly than the first....but not too much drama if you follow the instruction booklet carefully. The fences work well, with nil escapee's and are more suited to stone free ground.
While not causing an issue, there was a fault with the mesh diameter on one fence, which has 3 small squares 30mm or so about the middle then expanding approx. half way along to all 50mm squares, this led to a spare square at the top for half the fence, giving rise to several comments about reading instructions akin to map reading. Good product and great service as is the norm with Appletons.

Great Omlet Cube chook house. My chickens are so, so happy. It was my biggest DIY project yet and I was so proud once I had finished it all. Fionna was brilliant.

Very happy with this product. I prefer it to the Chookateria feeder as the oldest feed gets eaten first so you don't get a build up of stale food. My small flock have adapted to it easily. Set on the lightest setting, even my two little pekin bantams can operate it.
I do wish I'd have got the smaller one though - for my flock of 6 small to medium chickens, the 8kg seems a bit big. Maybe a good excuse to get some more chickens! And great customer service, as always.
