‘Crate’ news for the BHWT & the Annual Pumpkin Carving Competition


Earlier this month we decided to celebrate World Egg Day by donating £50 from every Eglu sold that day to the brilliant British Hen Welfare Trust. Thanks to your chicken coop purchases we managed to raise £700 for the BHWT, enough for them to buy 20 new poultry crates. Each crate will allow them to transport a dozen hens for rehoming, allowing even more ex-commercial hens to be given a wonderful new life.

And that’s not the only good news for the BHWT this month. They have just been chosen as the British Veterinary Nursing Association’s official Charity of the Year. Not forgetting it’s their 10th birthday this year, and the fact that they’ve almost reached their target of re-homing half a million hens, 2015 has turned out to be an eggstraordinary year for both them and an whole lot of chickens!

Why the Eglu Cube is a 5* Chicken Coop

We love getting your feedback on our products and it’s great to see how much you’re loving your Eglus this month. If you’ve been thinking about buying an Eglu Cube, these reviews may just help you decide that it’s the chicken coop for you!

“I now have two large eglus, and they are totally wonderful. The design is brilliant, I clean mine out daily and it takes no time at all. I have all the neighbours saving me newspapers, and I hose down the perches. Mites are a thing of the past, there is nowhere to hide, and the chickens seem to love it too. I would not recommend anything else to anyone thinking of keeping chickens and I have kept chickens for over twenty years.” by Penny Murray

“Absolutely love my cube. So easy to clean compared to my wooden coop, well ventilated, doesnt leak, red mite is no longer a problem, chickens love it!” by Katie Morrison

Results of the Outdoor Guinea Pig Run Competition

How much do you love your guinea pig? As much as Ella and Ruby Dawes? They were the deserving winners of our recent Outdoor Guinea Pig Run competition due to their clear passion for piggies. We asked you to make a film showing what your guinea pigs mean to you and we got a brilliant response. Your videos included performing pets and sensational singing but we were most impressed with Ella and Ruby’s well-thought mini documentary. When we told their Mum the good news she said “the girls are going to be absolutely thrilled and so are our guinea pigs”.

You can watch the girls’ prize-winning video here and find out more about the Outdoor Guinea Pig Run here!
