Omlet Newsletter – Friday, 18th October 2013
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.
Have an eggcellent weekend,
The Omlet Team x
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.

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.
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.

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!

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!
