    Looking for a way to add more light. Can you share pics and how did you predator proof it.

    That would be awesome. I'm considering putting the hardwire cloth down, then the roof frame, then the corrugated roof.

    Just wondering if anyone else usedvit and what their predator proof setup was.

    I'm in the process of building my first coop and plan to do a translucent skylight. Hadn't thought about predators sneaking in that way, so I'm glad you brought it up. Not sure how likely that would be, but I'm going to put a layer of hardware cloth so I don't have to think about it. An ounce of prevention...
