Rain, rain and more rain...it's all we've been hearing about at the moment. Anyone would think it was April with the number of showers we've had, but alas, it really is July. It has been a dreadfully dismal start to Summer but we have our legs, arms and fingers crossed for some nicer weather soon.
Unfortunately we can't wave a magic wand and make the wet weather disappear, but we can offer you a solution to the constant rain (for your chickens at least). Our Clear Covers for Eglu Gos, Classics and Cubes will keep your hens dry as a bone and sheltered from unpredictable showers. When the sun does choose to make an appearance these Covers will let the light shine through, allowing your chooks to warm up their tail feathers. You'll get a great view of your hens in the run, and they'll appreciate not having to hide in the nesting box to keep dry.
Omlet Clear Covers are hard-wearing, long-lasting and great value for money, and each comes with bungees to attach to your Eglu Run.
We are really excited that Qutes are now lining the shelves at pet superstore Just for Pets. One of the biggest pet retailers in the business, this store was keen to offer its customers the coolest hamster cage on the market, and we are proud to be in partnership with them.
The Qute is currently in four branches of Just for Pets: Northfield - Birmingham, Bentley Bridge - Wolverhampton, Bristol and Worcester, and we hope to have it in other branches soon. This is great news for any of you that want to see the Qute set up and test out all the cool features. You can pull out the bedding tray, give the wheel a spin and check out the handy storage compartment, and if you decide that it is the right choice for you, you'll even be able to pick up your new pet hamster or gerbil while you're there! The staff at Just for Pets are really knowledgeable when it comes to animals, so they will be happy to help you with any questions you might have.
It's official, Britain is great! In the last newsletter we asked you to tell us your favourite things about the UK and you were full of wonderful things to say.
Our five winners of the Union Jack Egg Cup and matching Egg Cosy are Clair Law, Sew Choon Possible, George Bateman, Elaine Clarke and Simon de Garis. You will all be receiving your prizes shortly!
This was our favourite entry, from Clair: "My favourite thing about Britain is the fantastic scenery, coastlines and historic buildings! But by far the best bit is the people! No matter were I have visited in the uk I have always been made to feel welcome (something that doesn't always happen abroad!) and the people are always friendly! And the British stoicism with the weather is something no other country can boast about! We Brits DO 'Keep calm and carry on' in the face of some truly awful weather!”
