We are extremely happy with this item. For a start it arrived promptly. It’s quality is excellent and the design makes it easy to fit and then use when opening and closing the Cube door and gaining access to the nesting box. It is not cheap but it is good value for money. We have no doubt that the hens are extremely snug when inside overnight.
Very easy to fit and 'does the job' - no more chilly chickens!
The product is brilliant especially in the what seems to be new "hurricane" season we're experiencing, the girls are very happy to have somewhere to shelter from the winds!
The reason I gave it 4 stars was I cant find wind break for the go up, so there's an idea for you
Bought these as protection for our hens from the driving wind and rain we have been having. They fit perfectly round the frame under neath my Cube and have given the hens a dry safe space to shelter.
My ex-colony Hens needed some extra shelter as they arrived in a period of heavy rain and gales and with Omlet's roof covers and the addition of the wind breaks under the cube they had somewhere to keep dry, whilst they grew some feathers. Happy hens!
I bought the pack of three, heavy duty wind protection covers to ho around the bottom of my eglu cube to make a shrelter for my chickens. It works very well, keeping the worst of the weather out and giving the girls somewhere to go when it rains. Each piece was quick and easy to fit onto the base of the eglu (I do not have a run) and has stayed in place even in strong winds. They do the job.
These covers are sturdy and of good quality. We live in The Brecon Beacons where the weather can be very wet and windy. The hens quickly found it is a good place to shelter.
Highly recommend Omlet and ALL their products. We have two Eglu Cubes currently and find they are very easy to keep clean and free from red mites etc. Even our chooks are more than happy with them. Thanks also go to their office staff who have also been more than helpful on many occasions.
Good strong panels for the base of the cube to provide shelter in bad weather. The only criticism is that a slightly longer panel for the back section would give even better coverage.
Would not be without these for the winter, keeps the wind and the rain off the girls when it is driving and gives them a nice, dark, secure area to take to when anything upsets them. Plus it will keep the snow out.
