It’s a great chance for you to see our products in the flesh and come and have a chat! See you there!

Flip your way to Free Chicken Food

We hope you all had a fliptastic Pancake Day and had fun stuffing yourselves silly. We haven’t had much evidence of extreme pancake flipping yet though, and time is running out. If you forgot to take photos for our competition it is the perfect eggscuse to make yet another batch and flip up a storm, and if you just haven’t sent us your pics yet get a wriggle on because there is a great prize up for grabs.

Yes, you could win a year’s supply of food for your hens! That’s 10 bags of 10kg Organic Omlet Chicken Feed, enough to feed two chickens for a year, to have delivered whenever you choose. Factor in the delivery cost and that’s a prize worth a whopping £137.50! So why not give it a go? Just send a photo of your extreme pancake flipping to stephanie@omlet.co.uk. Entries need to be in by Monday 14th so you can spend the weekend perfecting your pancake poses!

Egg VS Chicken!

This week PC Advisor magazine has published a review of a brand new game for the iPhone, called Egg vs Chicken… and although we wouldn’t usually comment on all this modern technology stuff, we just had to give this a mention to our newsletter readers. After all, for any iPhone users out there, this might be the most eggciting bit of news you’ve had all week!

Egg vs Chicken may be the new Angry Birds of the iPhone gaming world. The new puzzle action game features a pen full of eggs and a lot of crazy chickens. The aim of the game is simply to defend the eggs from the chickens by shooting the chickens with the eggs until they disappear. According to the game testing eggspert it is a ‘highly impressive game’, and we think that anyone that keeps chickens will appreciate it even more!

Brand New Easter Gifts!

With Pancake Day out of the way we can officially start getting eggcited about Easter now! That’s why we have just put lots of gorgeous new Easter gifts on the website. Yes, we could have gone all supermarkety and filled our shelves with chocolate as soon as Christmas day had gone, but we thought we might get sick of the sight of it by April.

So what does our Easter selection have to offer? Lovely little egg cups filled with chocolates, bags and jars full of speckled eggs and delightful decorations for the table. They’re cheap, cheerful and far prettier than the basic boxed eggs you’d find on the high street. So with just six weeks to go, why not take a peek?

Eglu in Urban Farm Magazine

The Eglu often gets ‘papped’ for different magazines and papers in the UK, but it’s pretty cool when we spot it in a publication overseas. This month the American magazine Urban Farm has a whole article on chicken housing, called Coop Sweet Coop (brilliant!). It features the Eglu Go, in bright yellow, saying “pre-fab coops, like the Eglu, are an easy answer to low-maintenace chicken housing”. Although there is information on all sorts of chicken coops the advice is: “Pre-fab coops are the simplest way to go. They arrive in a box, ready to be set in your yard and welcome chickens.” Considering the article was written by an author of two best-selling books on poultry, Christine Heinrichs, we take her comments as praise indeed!

Apparantly there is such a thing as Coops Tours in America, where residents interested in keeping chickens can take a tour of different chicken coops in the area, to see what the options are. This is something to start in the UK, surely!?
