Mini Cover?

I know most Mini BGE owners bring their egg inside and just sleep with it.  

But I know there are some of you who don't .... When I do leave mine outside; I would like to cover it.  What are some unique options out there?  I am game for a stock BGE cover, but just wondering what else you guys use or can think of for a decent fit.

    The BGE Dome cover for the LBGE is perfect for it. Check it out on BGE website. It is black.

    All good info here, thanks for every ones thoughts. I am leaning towards getting some sort of cover for it.  If I come up with something unique I'll keep everyone posted.

    Don't cover it. I'm sure you would be able to find something that might work at your Home Depot or Lowe's for a few bucks, but why bother?

    We put our Mini in a not being used large nest and SWMBO hemmed up the cover!! So it stays covered and makes moving it around a snap!! Win Win for us!

    Don't bother. Mom was asking for Christmas gift ideas a few years ago. Couldn't think of much so I asked for a cover for my large. I have used it twice.

    Put it inside the large egg :).

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.
