    Im planning on using plastic and tarps for the run over the winter. Any one have some pics on their profile I could view to get some ideas? Im a little confused on how to cover the top. The run is flat on top. Will post a pic. How can they get sun light if it is covered on top [​IMG]

    It looks like you have power there. Maybe you could hook up a light.

    They were just extension cords for the saw and drill. I was just hoping some one had a link for some ideas of how people had their pens set up for the winter using plastic :) Or maybe they have some pics for ideas on their profile. Lotsa people telling me chickens dont need heat.????

    I covered the top of the run & part of the sides with a tarp but i left the front open as well as part of the sides for light/vent. I do have a light set up in the coop for the dark rainy days to help with egg production. You will just have to play around & see what works for your setup :)

    You could just make a roof out of the clearish corrugated roofing. Looks like it would be less than $100 to cover that area.
