Omlet 10th Anniversary!


Hello,Can you believe it’s been a decade since Omlet began? The Eglu Classic was launched back in 2004, by four friends who met while studying at the Royal College of Art. 10 years on and (between you and me) they may be looking a little older and more worn, but the Eglu remains as fresh and funky as ever. Since sparking a sensation in urban chicken keeping, Omlet have delivered Eglus to households across Europe and America, and introduced thousands of families to the joy of keeping hens and the taste of freshly laid eggs. We hope you’ve henjoyed the journey as much as we have, and we’d like to eggspress our thanks for being such a fantastic bunch!

With Easter just around the corner and with a 10 year anniversary to celebrate, we’re eggstraordinarily eggcited to be able to finally unveil some cracking new products that we’ve been keeping quiet about. Plus, find out about the competition that will have you mistaking us for Willy Wonka… (There’s also a little secret eggstra hidden at the end of this email. Shhhh.)



Yellow Eglu Classics Back in Business!

What do Eglus, custard and daffodils have in common? They’re all yellow! That’s right, the yellow Eglu Classic is back with a bang, and looking better than ever before. It’s been a long time since we saw our old friend, and we’ve missed the bright and sunny shade of chicken coop, so, what better way to celebrate Omlet’s 10 year anniversary than by bringing back this cracking colour, and reuniting the original Eglu traffic light trio!? At long last the Green, Red and Yellow Eglus can nest in harmony and house lots of happy chickens.

Spring is the perfect time to start keeping chickens, and there’s nothing more Spring-like than a bloomin’ beautiful yellow Eglu. You’ll be collecting fresh eggs in time for Easter (and that beats chocolate for sure). Order yours today and you could start your dream of keeping hens with just the cluck of a button!

Brand New Eglu Egg Cup Now Available to Pre-Order

To celebrate 10 years of the Eglu Classic, we are eggstatic to unveil a new coop. It may be smaller than our other chicken houses, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in absolute all-round awesomeness. Introducing the Eglu Egg Cup – a miniature replica of the original Eglu Classic, for your boiled egg!

It’s cute, it’s cool, it’s iconic: the 2014 must-have breakfast eggcessory to add to your collection. (Please note, Omlet can not be held liable for any crockery kerfuffle caused by egg cup envy.) An 1/8th scale replica of the Eglu Classic, this may be too small to keep real chickens, but it is the perfect size to nest a beautiful boiled egg. Available as an Egg Cup, or as a Breakfast Set complete with toast rack run and salt and Miss Pepperpots, this is undoubtedly the only egg coop of its kind, and with five colours, you can choose one to match your real Eglu.

The Eglu has been eggsibited all over the world and now you can display a little piece of design history right in your kitchen. Perfect for enjoying the simple pleasure of eating a boiled egg in style!
