Giveaway: Solar Nite Guard

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.

  • I would love to win a Nite Guard! I told Nite Guard that you sent me, and became a follower of your blog!Thats 3 entries! My email is: [email protected]!

  • 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.

  • 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, [email protected]

  • 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

  • I loved seeing your video and loved seeing your coop set up. The Night Guards look great I am definitely getting some IF I don't win one! 🙂 Thank you.

  • You can never be too safe! These things are awesome!

    I'm now following your blog, and I let Night Guard know you sent me over.

  • 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.

  • love your blog, always educational, really want to get a night guard for the girls safety. thank you

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

    • Be sure to leave your name and an email address just in case you win, so that I can contact you 🙂

  • 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.

  • We have a big predator problem and would very much like to try Night Guard. Thank You. [email protected]

  • 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: [email protected]

  • 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,
