I'm in NH, it's not unheard of to have 3 feet of snow in our yard for 2 months at a time. Can anyone offer any suggestions as to how to cover this 4X8 run in a (cheap) way that would make it so we could leave it attached? Right now, my husband's plan is to disconnect the run, store it under the deck, and lock the hens in the coop to be let out by us into the yard on milder days. I just don't think they'd get enough freedom that way, I'd rather be able to open the pop door and give them access to the run all day on nicer days, just locking them in on the harsh ones to keep them safe. Thank you for any suggestions! The wood isn't super strong, I wouldn't trust just putting a tarp over it, I think it would collapse under the weight of the snow the tarp would collect.
