What to use for a chicken run COVER? - Page 4

post #31 of 34

Looks great.  We did have an extra older HUGE tarp that I just doubled up and placed over both runs.  Love the Camo tarp!

 

What do you think the mesh run was made out of?  I bought something similar, and love it, but can not find anymore in the USA since I bought they 2 I currently have.

So how did you connect over the top and did you use regular chicken coop wire?  We have a dozen chickens and have been building weekend warrior style! If we can get this done, all we have left is to connect our solar electric pulse fence to the side portions where predators may climb and poor concrete around the base of the coop from the outside.  Thanks in advance for your reply! :)  We have 11 hens and 1 roo.

Pvc pipe regular sch 40 mentined wont last too long. The sun will make it brittle and it will break or crack... my  experiece in a unit I made I kept on my deck

now that  gray exterior  electrical pipe might hold up a liitle longer...

 we used metal conduit for extra support in the welded  wire dog kennel coop then attached 1 inch poultry wire...

unfortunately used 2 inch chicken wire roof run in the bigger run.. dang wild birds get thru that....I should have ordered 1 inch wire  . bought it on 150 rolls special ordered....

BUT last year with those snow thank goodnes didn't collape....

 just a saying
