Giveaway: Solar Nite Guard

March 18, 2012

Like many of you around the country, we have had to take extra precautions to keep our flock safe from predators. Cape Cod is home to many predators including but not limited to foxes, coyotes, skunk, raccoon, opossum, weasels, fisher cats, owls and hawks. Any of these would love to make a meal out of one of our flock members. We have always had to be very safe. Our free-ranging is always supervised and mostly takes place after in the early evening before dusk. This gives the flock just enough time to stretch their legs and explore before nightfall.

We are continually striving and looking for additional ways to keep our chicken safe. We try to stay one step ahead of the predators. A couple of months ago, we teamed up with our newest sponsor, Nite Guard. Over the past month, we have been using solar Nite Guards on our chicken coop and run to help keep predators at bay. Since installing the Nite Guards, we have not seen any footprints or scat near the coop and run. Here they are in action. ( Please don’t mind my stuffy voice, I still have that nasty head cold.)

In addition to the keeping livestock safe, they keep deer and wildlife out of gardens and help to protect your property. They are weatherproof, solar powered, eco friendly and easily install in minutes. In this video by Nite Guard, they share with us how Nite Guards appear at various distances and stand up to the elements.

  1. I usually lock my girls in at night, for fear that something will get in the run and to them. I really hate doing this in the summer and would like for them to be able to get out in the run at first light, small quarters make for pecking and bickering. I hadn't seen how these Nite Guards worked before and glad to see that they are soler powered and silent, so neighbors wouldn't complain. Here's crossing my fingers to win.

  2. I would love to win a Nite Guard, too. I am already a follower of Tilly's Nest (I think) as I learned about your site from Country Living. We're friends on facebook, too. Keep up the good work. Deborah in Atlanta,

  3. Hi Tilly… I so could use this
    Night Guard to chase all the
    critters that come into my
    yard at night.. Thank you
    for the chance to have this..
    Happy Spring

  4. I would love to win a Nite Guard. We have done all the predator-proofing we can, but we're so nervous every night. I always look for feathers in the yard first thing in the morning.

  5. I had read about the Nite Guards last year before I bought my very first chicks & as a result I purchased 3 of them. I've never seen any sign of predators except Hawks which of course, are a daytime only predator. I'm surrounded by woods & overgrown fields, so I know they're out there! I love nite guards & will be going to their FB page to like them & tell them Tilly's Nest sent me. Thanks, Pam Baum

  6. Woohoo! I've done everything for 3 entries. Can't wait to see who wins. I have a run that is completly closed in and an extra fence after that for them to free range in, when I'm home. This would be extra predator protection for me.

  7. I lock all my girls up now, but am still worried about predators. I ordered two Nite Guards after losing two of my sweet girls and would LOVE to have a couple more! I haven't noticed any tracks or noticed anything arwy since putting them up. I also got them very quickly and with free shipping!! I feel so much more at ease now:) Thanks for this great product.

  8. i tried soooo hard to win the other one a couple of weeks ago! I would LOVE to win it… we have all sorts of critters that prohibit me free ranging the ladies… the weenie dog I can leave inside 🙂 I am already a fan of both you and Night Guard on FB and an avid follower of your blog 🙂 I also commented on Night Guard's wall that you sent me over. Blessings, Mandi Miller (

  9. I could really use a Nite Guard for better sleep. I have a fox that has been visiting us at night for 2 years. When I hear it barking in the yard I go out with my red laser light cat toy to scare it off. Going to Night Guard web site to check prices. Thanks Tilly

  10. I really hope I win! I'm already a follower and I liked to the Nite Guard FB page and said you sent me. I have a question. Will it keep a stray dog away?

    • Hi Charlotte, I contacted Nite Guard and this is what they said, "As a rule the lights will not keep away domesticated animals like dogs and cats…with the exception of feral or wild dogs and cats. If the stray dog was a pet, the light probably won’t keep them away. If the stray dog is truly a wild or feral dog, then there’s a good chance it will keep them away." Hope this helps. Thanks for the question.

  18. Hello, and thanks for the opportunity to win a Niteguard for my own coop! I love how there are solar-powered ones! We have terrible raccoons and cats & local dogs too here in Seattle… my email is:

  19. Hello there Tilly's Nest,
    I love reading your blog.
    I have found that a scarecrow has been a great help, like you we have a lot of predators including eagles and various kinds of Hawks.
    Every morning I move the scarecrow to a different location to confuse the predators.
    But a Night Guard would be nice to add to our defense at night.
    Take Care,

  20. Here in Montana, the predators are many. Mostly raccoons and bear, with the occasional fox. I would LOVE the extra protection of the Nite Guard.

  21. We would love to get a Nite Guard! I am a follower of you blog, and sent Nite Guard a hello. In total I have three entries!

  22. I would love to win a NIte Guard light! I follow your blog and enjoy it! I also visited Nite guard on facebook and liked their page. You can reach me via my blog! Would love to have you follow my blog, you can see my new baby chicks!
    Thanks for the entry!

  23. Hey! I just wanted to thank you so much for all of your detailed information!

  25. Hi, I would sleep better at night knowing my girls have another layer of protection. I just got my first six chicks two weeks ago and am amazed at how fast they grow. I am getting to know each one of them and would be heartbroken if anything every happened to them. I love following your blogs and have learned soooo much from you. Thank you for all your time and effort, Linda

  26. Thanks for the GREAT giveaway! I would love one of these! I have three entries in total! GOOD LUCK TO EVERYBODY!

  27. I love reading your blog, I am either already a follower, or just in case I re- followed as #112. I wonder if Night Guard would also keep stray kitties out of my back yard? hmmm. I think it would also keep burglars away too, looks like a "camera on" light.
    I do not have a Blog, here is my email
    on my way to the Night Guard site right now!

  28. I would love to make my girls and gents safer . My ducks wont come into the hen house. So I lock them into the covered side pen. and have not lost any more for a while. But would love to feel they are all safer.
