Essential for the rainy and snowy months
16 April 2022
The windbreak is a must-have. When the weather is rough--whether rainy, snowy, windy, or icy--the windbreak provides a safe space for the chickens to huddle. I couldn't recommend it more highly. A lot of Omlet's products are nice to have; this is essential if you live in a cold or windy climate.
Love this! Essential if you get hail or random snow drifts in this crazy weather.

I love this. Got it just before we got that random cold snap that gave us three days of hail and snow. The girls were protected and were able to keep dry outside.

The girls gather here when the wind and rain get going. I can see them and they can see out. Excellent.

Chickens fave hang out

We live in upstate NY and this is my chickens first winter. The covered area underneath the eglu is their fave hangout now that it’s protected in 3 sides by the windbreaker

Perfect weather protection
15 September 2021
Despite delayed shipping (the reason we rated 4 and not 5 stars), we received the windbreak before the snow begins to fly here in the north east! It fits perfectly under our Eglu and we are confident it will keep the hens snug this winter. We liked that the 3 pieces are joined with velcro, (hook and loop), no zippers to mess with. We plan on using "zip-ties" to attach to the enclosure. Thanks Omlet for a clever, and practical solution to weather protection!

Clear wind break

Excellent for all year use. We had very unseasonal weather in May and the girls must have appreciated the wind break given they still haven’t got all their feathers back!

Makes moving simple

These make lowering and raising the wheels easier . The Velcro corners line up pretty well .

Just what was needed

The windbreak for the Eglu Mk2 is a great addition. It provides a sheltered space from wind, & rain, (and in future snow) which we have in abundance. It interfaces well with the wheel handles and stays tight against the frame and fencing under the Eglu. Well designed and value for the money.

Found this makes good refuge from the wind and rain: the hens choose it for shelter. Been in use for 6 weeks in a windy garden . Reasonably robust. Velcro at the back allows use of the wheel raising handles.
I recommend this, particularly for windy sites.
Love this great idea

This is brilliant to keep my chickens protected from the weather. They can go in under the cage and be protected
