I have an Omlet Eglu coop and attached walk in run. I'm very happy with them. (so are my girls!) Omlet provides a good conversion kit to attach the Eglu and run. However, I wanted to maintain the original coop door instead of the smaller opening in the conversion kit. Below are two videos to show how I did this. It wasn't difficult.

Omlet's installation video. At 1:05 you see the detached panel where the coop will meet the run. At 1:25 you'll see a rectangular panel from the conversion kit being installed horizontally. This is where I depart from the instructions.


In my video, I show how I attach the rectangular panel vertically so I can keep the original coop door and cover the gap where the coop and run connect.


Below is a picture of my set up. Happy to answer any questions.

This is exactly what I want to do - thank you so much for posting! My biggest concern with the Eagle is that rats and mice can get into the run through the large holes in the fencing. There are tons of rats around here and I worry about that. Looks great!
