Holy chicken, the Eglu is finally available in the U.S. I've had my eye on this thing for a couple years now, but it was only available in the U.K. Not that I have any chickens, and we've recently moved to a house in a neighborhood where the covenants prevent us from owning the 3 chickens that the rest of Seattlites can own.
Either way, I wanted to let all of you urban and suburban chicken lovers know that this is a pretty tidy little operation for keeping your chickens. It's fairly expensive and I'm sure you super chicken owners out there will scoff at the design, but for those cramped for space but still want chickens, it seems pretty viable to me. This is, apparently, the iMac for chickens.
So, if you're a Crunchy Chicken interested in sustainability and want to raise your own chickens, but didn't think you had the space for it, you might want to check it out. If you're looking for more spacious accomodations, you can get some chicken coop plans as well as other pre-fab options.
And one day, perhaps the manufacturer will make the high end Eglu Cube available in the U.S. too.
Looking for chicks?
