Freshly Laid Egg

Freshly Laid Egg (1/19)



  1. I have an eglu with extensions - 18.5 feet long run. I have 2 long plastic omlet covers and a short green one, leaving a gap between the green one and the other 2. The chickens are generally allowed out and I just shut the run door overnight. Do I need to remove the plastic covers for the summer and if so at what daytime temperatures do I need to do this. If so do I need to get another green cover for near the hen house to keep it dry if it rains?
  2. I am new to chicken keeping. I got my 3 at 17 weeks old, 5 months ago. I have not yet shut the eglu door overnight. I just shut the run door at dusk and ooen this when I get up in the morning. At what minimum temperature should I shut them in their eglu at night?
