Nice job Dave, keep them nice and warm for winter, keep the cold wind chills at bay.

I think polycarb magnifies any suns rays to give a little heat but most important keeps the biting cold winds out.

Thank you I did have an aquosis cover but decided to put polycarb on and hopefully rain will just run off as there’s a slight fall of about an 1 inch unlike the aqupsis even though I supported on ratchet straps it sat on top and amount of rain we get here at times there was always gallons sat on it to brush off

I’m in the lap of the gods when it comes to temperatures this year unheated as for feeding I’ve fed up until last few days I fed a couple of feeds with pearl barley drizzled with honey and will leave em now until or if we get a milder spell all look well and are still active even though its cold out
