This seems good but I'm a bit worried that when the back is zipped on it covers the ventilation holes?
Omlet Says: Good afternoon Jane,
Thank you for your comment, please do not worry about the cover going over ventilation holes.
The blankets are made of a breathable material which will still allow air flow whilst retaining heat.
Similar to a sleeping bag.
I hope this helps put your mind at ease.
Fits well and seems to provide extra layer to keep out cold. Easy to put on and use.
This is the second “chicken duvet” I have bought; the original was sold together with my Eglu when Mr Fox came to visit! I have since bought a new Eglu and a new Eglu jacket too. Living high in the Chiltern Hills, the wind blows and the snow falls and I can’t recommend it too highly. My chicken adore being snug and warm and I wouldn’t want to go through a winter without this fabulous “back up”. Thank you Eglu - another wonderful innovation!
I live in the frozen tundra of Minnesota and my chickens are having comfortable nights with this blanket on. No need for a heater even on the coldest of nights, this blanket does the trick!
Looks good quality, but won’t be trying it out untill winter so don’t no if it works or not.
Well, maybe not toasty, but Puck has all the points on his comb and we have had temps down to -31 F so far this winter. My show birds are in this coop and they’re all doing fine. I added the wind breaks on the sides and ends and the clear tarp over the top and down over the front to protect them from the chill and snow, and they’re happy birds. The whole set-up works beautifully.
