Chicken run fence Question?

  1. Ok My chicken run is 4 ft tall I know low, I either am going to build a new one that is a box, (with the board frames and the chicken wire as the wall itself)that would include the roof to (I hope I described that right [​IMG]) or build higher, I am stuck between those decision because I want to be able to walk into the run! My question is, if I build higher which is probably what I will have to do, because of money!! but where would I get the roof that is green plastic and see through and how expensive is it?

    You are smart to build it higher. You may want to make sure you have a good gate. Mine was not & something got into it today somehow & just lost a few chickens to a predator I didn't know I had.

    I think you can buy the green stuff at Lowes??

    Anyone else know?

    Home Depot has it, I would assume Lowe's does as well. I think I'm going to go for shade cloth tho if I can find it. Hopefully they carry more than this.
