I reached out to Lady Henevere and she is still happy with her Cube https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=226864&p=1 Any Cube owners out there that live in the midwest that are happy or unhappy for that matter with the way it performs in the winter/summer? I know Ive read countless posts where its cheaper to build a wood one, etc. I know that, but for some reason I really like the maintenance aspect of the cube and how easy it would be to clean, has good ventilation and less worries about mites. I would buy the Cube by itself and then enclose it in a run similar to the runs found here, http://www.aviariesforyou.com/chicken_runs.htm I purchased the plans for the garden coop at http://www.thegardencoop.com , which Im still contemplating, but for some reason I keep coming back to the Eglu Cube in an enclosed/covered run . I would use the plans from Garden Coop for the run itself. Any thoughts? I live in a suburb of Chicago so with that comes very snowy & cold winters and hot summers. Thanks, no joke this site is addictive! My plan is to get my hen housing complete in the fall and then get my (3 to 4) chix in the spring.
