Cackle Hatchery Meets Omlet

We recently had the pleasure of hosting Johannes from Omlet at our facility nestled in the heart of Lebanon, Missouri. It was more than just a visit; it was a meeting of minds, a shared understanding of the profound bond between humans and their feathered companions.

As we sat down with Johannes, the story of Omlet unfolded before us, tracing its roots back to a simple yet profound question: “Can a chicken be a pet?” In 2003, fueled by curiosity and a desire to challenge conventions, they embarked on a journey that would revolutionize backyard chicken keeping. Their first Eglu prototype was born, setting in motion a remarkable 21-year evolution that has seen the creation of multiple models including the Eglu Cube, Eglu Go Up, Eglu Go, and their latest innovation, the Eglu Pro.

Each of these coops stands as a testament to Omlet’s unwavering commitment to quality, functionality, and the well-being of both chickens and their keepers. Designed to be top of their class, these coops are not only easy to clean and predator-resistant but also serve as the perfect sanctuary for your backyard flock.

However, our conversation transcended the realm of mere product discussion. Johannes and I delved into the deeper significance of chicken keeping as a lifestyle choice. We shared stories of how keeping poultry as pets is not just a hobby but a form of meditation, a way to reconnect with the rhythms of nature in an increasingly digitized world.
