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!
Alot better than the last cover I purchased, the lightweight summer cover, that faded and rotted VERY quickly. It would be nice if the heavy duty covers came in colours to match the eglu and that the colour didn't fade.
I have managed with my original shade for 3 1/2 years although it was doing its best to disintegrate. I am so please Omlet have brought out a shade that is up to the job of being out in all weathers all year round. Winter will be the real test but I am very impressed with the material so far - much more substantial than the original shade.
It comes with enough bungees so that it can be positioned easily. It is a bit rucked up but imagine this is due to the shapre of the run. Overall I would recommend this product!
easy to fit.
good standard of product and fast delivery
