The product is a great idea, BUT NEEDS SOME SERIOUS IMPROVEMENTS as not cheap. The plastic is heavy and needs to be secured quite firmly especially if its intention is to buffer hens from wind and rain, but it stretches and all too soon separates from the eyelets and consequently rips!
I was advised by Omlet to loosen the ties, although they sent 2 replacements FOC, but they make an awful flapping noise, which had all my girls run back into the Cube and not venture out...for 2 days!
PLEASE make improvements as could be a great product
The cover is of heavy duty plastic that holds up well to the weather (heavy rain and wind) and is good at protecting the hens from mostly vertical rainfall. However, I don't understand why the side has been made of insufficient material to reach the ground. It ends approx 40cm off the ground when attached to cover the entire top of a 2m long run. I have ordered a second one and will attach both in the length from the top down the sides as I'm more concerned with horizontal snow in the winter!
I like this product but in my opinion the size is a bit scrimpy. I'm not at all sure why it is not the same length as the run - it falls short by about 30cm !
Good cover from the elements, and is a lot better looking than the grey plastic sheeting we had covering the run for over a year! Should come with the extended Eglu because it improves the look of the run (good for future Omlet sales), and like everything else here is expensive for a clear plastic cover with bungees attaches at each corner...
