Does the Job

Bought to replace the old one that we had had for 2-3 years and had faded and torn. Hads a hard life so can't complain. Well worth it to give the chicks some shade when the sun shines.
OK but fades

Effective screen - pity it fades so badly over time

Excellent product, well constructed. Purchased extra run and well worth extra money. Chickens are very happy in their new home. It took a good 3 hours to construct which is a little longer than instruction book suggests, but instructions where clear and it is easy for 1 person to erect.
I would recommend this product.

I use one on the top and one on the windward side to help keep the worst of the winter winds and snow out of the run.
Does not last very long

In the cloudy UK, this canopy might be quite long lived, but I found here in Canada that after one year it totally bleached out and started to fall apart. We do get a lot of sun in the summer and clearly the UV light does cause substantial deterioration in this product. In North America I would expect to replace this canopy every two years.

Does what it is supposed to do, but they do not really last as the sun always breaks down the material and they then split
Does the job looks good

I wish they didn't eventually fade but hey they are out in all weathers.
Not as expected...

Unfortunately, whilst the description says that it 'is the cube shade that comes with the eglu cube'... it was quite smaller than the original shade that I got with my cube...
I had hope that this would be a replacement for my now faded shade - but it will probably have to be an additional shade for extra protection.
Also, sorry to say this Omlet, but it wasn't complete. It only had three fastenings instead of four...
So it has been attached with the old (faded, dirty, rusty) bands with the three new kept as spares in case the old one perish....
shady chickens :)

Me and my five chickens love the gloriously sunny weather but on an extra bright day when we are relaxing the eglu shade is the best tool which keeps us cool in the shade! :D
