Clear corrugated roofing material, or tin? - Page 2

post #11 of 13

Hello,

 

Do you guys have pictures of your coop with clear roof? I live in western new york and clear roof would be ideal for me. I am looking for ideas for the ridge cap, the vendor has a clear roof ridge cap but it seems kind of pricey to me.

 

Thanks!

You could just use a metal ridge cap, not going to cut down much on light.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

Thank you, I put that in my shopping list, but I didn't know if would be the correct thing to do.
I can't wait for the snow to melt so I can start working on the coop :)
