The difference with the Eglu Go is that it’s compatible with optional extras, including a frame and ladder, wheel set and raised 2m run.

This converts the Eglu Go to a raised coop and provides the additional benefits of extra space and shelter beneath the coop along and makes the coop more accessible for cleaning and egg collection.
