Eglu in the Guardian

The Eglu appeared in the Guardian last week, in a feature comparing plastic and wooden chicken houses. Author and chicken eggspert Andy Cawthray chose the Eglu as one of his pick of the market, saying ‘there is no disputing the popularity of Omlet’s Eglu….They are a solid twin-walled construction moulded from recycled plastic, making them simple to clean and manage, plus they come in a range of colours to suit the liveliest of tastes.’ Well, we can’t argue with that! Andy believes the best thing about plastic chicken houses is the ease of cleaning them and the minimal maintenance work.

Andy’s article was the second in a monthly series on poultry keeping. Next month he will be talking about preparing chickens for winter, so make sure you check it out.

Buy 3 get 1 Free!

Autumn is here and the Winter is definitely on its way, so now is the time to think about helping British wildlife. It is especially important to provide food for wild birds during the Winter as there is less natural food for them to find, and the cold temperatures mean they need extra energy. So before you start thinking about what Christmas presents to buy just yet, why not stock up on some bird feed and feeders, and keep your garden looking full of life! This week we have a great deal on our range of bird feed and feeders by Nature’s Feast…

Eglu Survives Bear Attack!

Remember the story of the Eglu Go that survived Hurricane Irene, without a scratch? Well, news just in from Vermont, not only did an Eglu Cube stand up to the storm too, it also survived not one but two bear attacks! Just a week after Irene blew into Canada, a black bear tried to break into the nesting area of Carol Hatcher’s Cube twice. Although the bear obviously fancied a chicken dinner to help stock up for the Winter, it failed to get to the hens, leaving deep claw marks as a result of its effort. Carol said “I am thankful that bear paws do not have the dexterity to turn the black nesting box knob, and that the thick plastic body of the Cube stood up to strong bear claws.”

Having had no success with the chickens, the bear has since moved onto raiding the neighbour’s pear tree instead. Carol spotted two black bears tucking into the pears just a few days later and even managed to get a photo of them! You can see a photo of one of the bear scratches too – proof that the Eglu has been brilliant again!

Having a chicken rustler this big is bad enough but Carol could bearly believe her eyes when she saw

him paddington around her neighbours garden! Is he now wandering into the bushes to have a winnie the pooh?

The Results are in!

Thanks to everyone that entered last month’s Crossword Competition. The lucky winner was Cara Carey, and she wins a £50 voucher to spend in the Omlet shop. If you didn’t manage to get all the answers you can click here to see the full solution!

And remember the Eggbods competition back in August? Well we have been sent a photo of 11 year old Liam having fun with his Eggstraterrestrial prize egg cup! His grandma, Avril, won it for him to encourage him to eat a boiled egg – although he loves chickens, he just did not like eggs! The good news is that with the help of the fun new egg cup he finished his first boiled egg. Hip hip hooray!

Liam loves his eggstraterrestrial breakfast
