Good shade. Much sturdier than the original and good cover for the chickens where their food and drink is.
We bought this initially to give the chickens some shelter from the torrential rain we kept having! It was easy to fit and was welcome shelter for them both in the rain, and now in the sun!
I have a south facing garden and I wanted some shade for my hens. The cover is good quality (better than the one I received with my rabbit eglu). During the recent torrential rain it has also provided shelter. I intend to buy the clear, full length one for the winter.
I have 3 cats that love to sit on top of my chooks and watch them... the cats aren't always good with their claws, but this has stood up to their beating so far... I'm very happy with this
Provides some shelter from the driving rain for the hens allowing them to feed a stay dry. Keeps that area of ground less muddy for a little longer. Sturdy in the high winds.
The cover that comes with the Go is a sunshade - it will come apart in typical British weather. This one is much more robust and provides a good rain cover. We use it in conjunction with the transparent rain cover on an extended run - gives them a dry conservatory! The chickens seem happy enough, so we are too.
Does the job really well.
This is much improved from the older version, and I am hopeful that this will last longer than the previous thinner version, which perished pretty much in a year. Nicely shaped to be a good fit around the end of the run.
I had to replace the original triangular cover as it had not only rotted but been pecked to pieces by crows...this one is not only much sturdier but also covers much more of the run. (I also put another type of cover over part of the run nearest the eglu, leaving just a little open to the sky). - I think this new cover is much better as although my chickens free range over the garden, I think they prefer a larger cover when in the coop and it's raining and especially when it snows, or the frost is heavy, as they don't like walking on the snow/frost! The other cover is merely a sun shade and not really a cover. Hopefully this one will stand up to the elements - and the crows!
