Hi all. I've seen lots of postings of people wondering what Eglu Cubes are really like and how they perform. Since I did end up getting one I figured I'd share my experience. Phase 1: Picking it up. The eglu was delivered in five seperate boxes to the Greyhound station in town. 5 BIG boxes. They were relativly weighty but weren't that unmanageble given their size. My DH and I ended up driving both our cars down to try and fit it all in. We managed it, between his Caliber and my CR-V, but it was a tight fit. I recommend to anyone ordering to borrow a friends truck for pickup if you don't have one yourself. It would have been much simpler. Phase 2: Building it. The directions were pritty simple. They start out with about three pages with pictures of pieces and the name of the piece below it. The rest of the direction were given with pictures of what you needed to do along with the directions. Probably would have taken me 2-3 hours if I hadn't been missing a rather critical piece. There are two side mounting brackets that help stabalize the front of the coop and keep it at the right angle to properly attach the rest of the pieces. I only received one but after some inginuity on my DH's part we managed to fabricate a replacement piece that worked just fine. We did contact MPC about the missing piece and they said they would contact Omlet on Monday about having them ship it to us. No real issue, we just didn't want to wait to set the coop up. Weather out here (CO) can be crazy and I didn't want to end up with a mess in the half-constructed coop. The chicks won't be moving in full time for another two weeks or so; but here are some pics of the finished project (and some of my girls, I just can't resist!) Everyone decided to hide in the back when they realized I was taking them back to the brooder. They were going crazy over the bugs and whatnot before I interupted their fun. Shania is in the back, Scrambles is on the left and Sunny is on the right. *Just realized I posted this in the wrong area. Is there a way to move it over???
