How much do you like your runs covered? We are totally redoing, expanding the outdoor runs for our daughters chickens. We would like not to have to crawl into the run when necessary! She has her 20 or so bantams for both pet and show. They do get some yard time but are not total free range, she worries about preditors. I am trying to talk my husband into builing the new runs covered to keep them drier and thus cleaner and hopefully be able to extend the season of use for them in Wisconsin. At first wanted the whole roof with the clear fiberglass roofing panels, way expensive. Now I am trying to talk him into half steel roof panels and half clear panels. I thought light might be nice for the chickens? The floor area is 10 x 20, divided into 2 runs. As long as we are redoing we might as well do it right. Any ideas or if it is not really needed to be covered?
