Omlet Newsletter – Friday, 18th October 2013

Win tasty, healthy breakfast hampers from Rude Health & much more!

Hello,

It’s been a week since World Egg Day and we have just about recovered from all the eggcitement. There’ll be more fun to come for Janet Cook though, as she was randomly selected as the lucky winner of our mEGGa competition. She will be taking delivery of a Yellow Eglu Go, plus all those other goodies, in the next few weeks, and we will be sure to catch the event on camera.

The competition had a brilliant response, and we are thrilled to be donating over £400 to the BHWT, thanks to all your entries. This fantastic charity will use the money towards re-homing commercial laying hens, educating the public about how they can make a difference to hen welfare, and supporting the British egg industry.

World Egg Day may be over for another year, but we have another treat for you. Get Free UK Delivery on Eglu Cubes, Walk in Runs and Extreme Temperature Jackets until the end of October.

For Eglu Cubes, use code: UKDELIVERYEG
For Walk in Runs, use code: UKDELIVERYWA
For Extreme Temperature Jackets, use code: UKDELIVERYEX

Have an eggcellent weekend,

Photo Competition Results

Who’s this gorgeous little chap? He’s the star of the photo competition of course. With a beautiful bright purple Eglu in the background, a trio of happy hens, and one heck of a pretty pooch, this star snap stood out as a clear winner, rewarding photographer Katie Cheetham with a £100 prize.

We don’t know what Katie’s going to spend her winnings on yet, but we think a fancy tweed dog jacket would be a good start. Some High-Vis Chicken Jackets would keep them happy in the Winter too.

Tidy Away Today Blog

Our Eglus are regularly featured in blogs, magazines and newspapers, but it’s always nice when we spot a write-up about one of our, shall we say, less obvious products. And when an editor chooses to review both the big and the little stuff on their online blog, we can’t wait to read what they have to say.

Antonia, at home and interiors blog Tidy Away Today, wrote about three Omlet products in her ‘Super Stylish Pet Accessories’ blog post, the Qute Hamster and Gerbil Cage, Eglu Classic Chicken Coop and Floral Cat Pyramid Bed. You can see from the photo that the bed was a hit with her puss Pixie, and Antonia reported: ‘She feels safe and warm in there and often pops her head out just to see what’s going on, before snuggling back in.’ (If only they were available in human size.)

She gave the Eglu the thumbs up, calling it ‘incredibly funky and modern’, and the Qute was a hit too – in her words, this ‘des res’ has to be seen to be believed.

Cracking Cube Review

Thinking of buying an Eglu Cube? This US customer did, and he’s never looked back. Randy’s review proves just what a great investment an Omlet Chicken House is, and with our Free Delivery offer this month, there isn’t a better time to place your order. Click here to read more about the Cube, and see what other people are saying!

The Great Omlet Bake Off Winners

There might still be a few days to wait to find out who is crowned the winner of the Great British Bake Off, but we are eggcited to be able to reveal the results of our own competition, The Great Omlet Bake Off, today. We had some fabulous entries and it was great to have so many of you get involved – it’s just a shame we didn’t get to taste those delicious looking bakes! After choosing our top 10, we put the entries to the public vote to choose the winners.

So, without further ado, here are the results: 3rd place – Kev Harris, with his Egg Custard; 2nd place – Tanya Weaver, with her Honey and Lemon Beehive Cake; 1st place, and Omlet Star Baker – Sharon Smith, with her Oreo Rosette Cake. You can see the top recipes here, and have a go at baking them at home.

Sharon is eggstatic to have won and she will be spending her £100 on treats and accessories for her new chickens!

 

Tweet of the Month

‘@omlet thanks to the awesomeness of Eglu my cat now lays eggs!!’

Our latest Tweet of the Month had us grinning like a cheshire cat. Moggies nesting in the Cube really isn’t something we see every day. Thanks for sharing @MrsEJAllison!

High-Vis Chicken Jacket

Just three weeks in and Omlet’s High-Vis Chicken Jackets have certainly got people talking. There’s been an article on Smallholder Online, a review on chicken keeping blog Chicken Street and rumour of it being the must-have Christmas gift for ex-batts everywhere. (Great for providing warmth to those with not-so-many feathers). We wouldn’t be surprised if these jackets make an appearance in one or two of the big newspapers in the next few weeks too…

So how do you get your hands on one of these innovative new accessories, we hear you cry. You can buy them for just £12 each, or a twin pack for £20, on our website. Alternatively, send us your best ‘Why did the chicken cross the road’ joke and you could win one!

Omlet Newsletter – Friday, 11th October 2013

Enter our Competition and Help a Hen this World Egg Day!

To celebrate World Egg Day we are giving one lucky person the chance to win a mEGGa prize. What’s more, for every entry Omlet will donate 10p to the fabulous British Hen Welfare Trust, the UK’s leading national hen welfare charity. So tell everyone you know to enter so we can build up a nice nest egg for the BHWT!

Win an Eglu Go
We think eggs are brilliant. Tasty, nutritious and versatile, they are great to have in the kitchen, ready to rustle up something delicious in an instant. But, wouldn’t it be wonderful if you didn’t have to pop to the local shop for your eggs? If you win this competition the furthest you will have to go is the back garden because we are giving you the chance to win an Eglu Go, worth £360, so that you can start keeping your own chickens.

Eggstra Prizes
You’ll want somewhere to store those tasty eggs, which is why our friends at the British Hen Welfare Trust will be sending the winner an Egg Skelter, to keep them in date order. And what better way to eat those lovely eggs than with a stylish set of crockery from Dorset Cereals!? They’ll be sending you their entire range of new porridge too so you can really breakfast like a king. You’ll also receive a subscription to Your Chickens Magazine, so you can read up on your new hen-keeping hobby every month.

Once you’ve started keeping chickens you’ll soon realise that there’s no need to watch TV. Hens provide amazing hentertainment, and you will find yourself sitting outside for hours watching the new pets. It’s a good thing that our pals at Tyrrells will be giving the winner a tonne of tasty treats to enjoy while watching the feathery shenanigans then. (The hens might want to share.)

There’s one more treat lined up for the lucky winner too – a beautiful British bouquet from Wiggly Wigglers. Just because you deserve it!

How to Enter
So, what are you waiting for? Answer one simple question for your chance to win. But be quick, because the competition closes at 11:59pm tonight.

Free Bouncy Egg with Every Order Today

Place an order today and we will send you a Free Bouncy Egg, to celebrate World Egg Day. Just use promo code: WORLDEGGDAY to get your freebie. But be quick, because this offer will expire at 11:59pm tonight.

Offer valid on UK orders only.
