A grand design for three lucky bunnies!

We’ve seen an amazing rabbit house set up using Omlet’s walk in run that we just had to share with you!
We paid a visit to Camilla Suchan’s house to interview her and take some pictures of her rabbits hopping around and living in a very spacious happy home!

Interview with Camilla Suchan, owner of a Walk In Rabbit Run

Hello Camilla, when did you start keeping?

We have three NDH / Mini lop rabbits that we have had since October 2016.

What are their names?

They are called: Officer Hopps, Dumbledore und Speedy.

Do you have any other pets other than Officer Hopps, Dumbledore und Speedy?

As well as the three rabbits we have a Briard dog and two ponies.

You have the 3m x 7m x 2m rabbit run. What do you like about the product?

I like the design. The fact that the green steel mesh is see through allows us to watch our animals from the outside and them to see their surroundings. It integrated amazingly into the garden.

Do you have any advice you’d like to give other rabbit keepers? Especially those who just started keeping them?

My advice to all rabbit keepers: Offer your pets a lot of space to jump and run around, the opportunity to climb, hide and dig. Your pets will be very grateful for that.

The design of the new Eglu Cube was focused on just one thing, creating the ultimate chicken coop. Made with advanced manufacturing technology, this coop is extremely strong and durable yet surprisingly light, making it effortlessly manoeuverable. Aesthetically pleasing, the clean, functional lines not only look great but also make cleaning the coop a breeze.

The new Eglu Cube is also the safest chicken coop on the market. It has a patented locking mechanism that will outfox any predators and includes a steel weld mesh run, complete with Omlet’s unique anti-tunnel skirt, designed to keep any unwanted visitors at bay.

Omlet New Eglu Cube Lifestyle

 

Comfier, more discreet and easier to clean – the Eglu Cube makes light work of a large flock.  Inside the Eglu Cube, chickens will find a spacious roosting area with contoured bars to provide plenty of perching opportunities.  The nest box, complete with sliding door, is discreetly positioned off to one side for privacy during the crucial egg laying moment.

With space for up to 10 hens you could be collecting a staggering 60 eggs a week. Your family will enjoy an abundance of cakes, quiches and dippy eggs galore!

Omlet’s Head of Product Design Simon Nicholls said “With the new Eglu Cube we really wanted to push the boundaries of what a chicken coop could be.  This is definitely the most advanced chicken house we have ever designed, it’s safer for your hens, more comfortable and even easier to clean. It really is the ultimate hen house.”

Whether you live in a town or the countryside, are a first time chicken keeper or an experienced breeder the new Eglu Cube will delight owners and their hens alike.

Bring back the dippy egg!

It’s one of our favourite foods as a child so why do we forget about it as an adult? What ever happened to taking a soft boiled egg, putting it in a funky egg cup and dipping your soldiers in it? We love it! It makes for a fun breakfast with the family, or a quick tea if you’ve got nothing in the house. These days it’s all about the smashed avocado on sourdough with poached eggs (not gonna lie, we do enjoy this) but sometimes it’s nice to just keep things simple with an Egg and a Soldier.

The Egg

People underestimate the difference a fresh egg can make to the taste of their breakfast. There’s nothing better than walking out to your garden and collecting your freshly laid eggs and putting them straight in a pan. We would definitely vote for a home grown or free range egg vs a small battery egg any day!
Alternatively Duck eggs make great dippy eggs as they have such a large yolk, bear in mind cooking time will take longer and your ratio of soldiers will need to be increased.

The Cup

Half the fun of a dippy egg is choosing your cup! Why not take a look at some of our weird and wonderful egg cups to add to your collection?

The Seasoning

You can either keep it simple with salt and pepper or if you’re feeling adventurous why not add a couple of drops of Tabasco to get your day off to a fiery start? Other suggestions include a dollop of Marmite, truffle salt and paprika. The options are endless, try out some new ones and let us know what you think.

The Soldier

Often not given the respect it deserves, the soldier element of a dippy egg is what makes the meal. You need a strong soldier that’s not going to bend, we would recommend toasted crusty bread, or a standard cut loaf, but make sure that it’s toasted enough to avoid the flimsy bread error. Alternatively you can try out different soldiers instead of bread, for example grilled asparagus wrapped in proscuitto, crudites or crispy bacon, get experimenting!
