The Eglu Classic has the most fox-resistant run on the market. The run has a free-ranger door so you can let your chickens roam the garden.

The optional (yet recommended) 2m run is made from strong steel welded mesh, impossible for predators to break. A unique anti-tunnel skirt sits flat on the ground and prevents animals from digging in. The run has spacious vertical sides and gives your chickens plenty of room. You can extend the run in 1m sections if you wish. The Eglu can be positioned on grass or any other surface such as wood chippings or rough ground where the chickens can rummage.

The unique tunnel-proof panels have been proven in rigorous testing to be fox and badger resistant. The run means that when you are out and about you can be sure that your chickens are safe. The dark green coating is designed to let the run blend into your garden and is fully bonded to the steel mesh, ensuring an extremely durable finish that looks great.

The run comes in sections for easy transportation or storage and can be assembled in minutes. The end panel opens for access to the feed and water containers and to let your chickens out. The Run can also be attached to our Walk In Run.

Garden size recommendations If you want to keep your chickens on grass we recommend that you move your Eglu around every so often to keep your lawn in tip top condition.

Ideally your garden should have a fence all the way round, this will prevent your chickens wandering into the neighbour's garden and, more importantly, ensure that all the eggs are laid on your side of the fence! The fence should be about 1.5m (5ft) high.

If you do not have grass, it is possible to keep a couple of chickens but you must provide them with a layer of wood chippings to rummage about in as this will give them the right type of surface underfoot.

The Eglu Classic Chicken Coop House is suitable for 2-4 medium sized chickens or 2-3 larger breeds such as Buff Orpingtons or Cochins. When setting up your Eglu, you should allow 60cm of space behind the house to enable the dropping tray to slide out easily.

Recently purchased the Eglu Classic. - Mark, East Sussex,

Very premium product. The hens love it.


A fantastic bargain - 11 years on - Nicki99, N Somerset,

I recently found my original order for my orange classic eglu, and could not quite believe it was dated 11 years ago! it was bought as a Rablu, then changed to an eglu over the years, but it has been in permanent use for 11 years and is still working well. At the time we thought it was an expensive treat, but it's worked out loads cheaper than wooden equivalents and still looks a fantastic feature in the garden.


A few years on... - Louise,

I bought this ages ago, I think 7 years. Very impressed to start with. I had 3 chickens in it and they seemed happy, although I personally felt the run wasn’t humanely big enough considering it had no height to it. The foxes didn’t get them in spite of me closing the Eglu most nights but I rehomed the chickens after a few years. It’s been sitting in the garden pile dismantled since. I was going to get rid of it but got quail instead and it is a great size for them. Badly sun faded but I quite like ombre although the plastic has pores that I can’t get the dirt out of. Also, the straps on the cover have disintegrated. Overall, I think it’s brilliant even if I do still choke over the price of a new one.


- Joan,

Excellent product. Have finally treated myself (my girls) to an eglu coop and run. Arrived quickly. Easy to put the run together as instructions are very clear. Staff very friendly and helpful.


Looks great. - Jayne, Highland,

I love this hen house. It is very easy to clean out and looks really good. The only downside is that they always seem to poo in the doorway and it's really difficult to get to with the run attached. Apart from that it's great.
