    this is really cool - i wont pay for it as i could build one myself that and its in the UK. i just thought i would share. i think i'll do this next time i have to build a coop - just bigger, because i dont believe that can really hold 6 chickens.

    I have never heard of a igloo cube, sounds interesting though.

    That is so cool! It would be perfect for a small backyard flock.

    That looks like a great improvement over the Eglu, but I still cannot see how they can claim it is an "ideal way" to house 10 chickens. Three, maybe four standards perhaps -but 10? Color me doubtful. [​IMG]

    Great for two or three chooks in the city though, definitely.

    Oh hey that new product is great looking! I really considered the Eglu for a long time. In fact, its the product website that got me thinking about chickens in the first place! It *is* pricy, but there are some real benefits I can see to plastic. They are nicely designed.

    yeah - think i might make one with wood, next time we move - but i think it would be too heavy to use as a tracter - plastic is lighter, and doesnt rot - i think it would last you a life time.
