The Eglu is brand of chicken coop designed and marketed by Omlet Ltd in the UK that is intended for small-scale, backyard chicken keeping. The original design was by four graduates from the Royal College of Art, and was first shown at the degree show at the College in 2003.
It was launched in April 2004 and has won a number of awards including the BSI Design Award and the Horners Award. It appears in several colours, and comes with a run 220 centimetres (about 7 feet) long. The eglu itself is roughly 80 centimetres (2 feet, 8 inches) long and wide. There are also models for rabbits and guinea pigs.
