For those who have a run that is covered, as in protected from snow and rain, do you think your chickens enjoy it. Looking at building a 50' x 10' divided run area and trying to convince hubby that we should cover it, or at least part of it. The whole run will be covered with fencing material for safety but I think the chickens would lke to be outside more. They get pretty stir crazy in our long Wisconsin winters. One of the run sections will be used mainly for the grow out pens, thier not insulated so not really used in winter anyway. I don't know if steel panels or the fiberglass corrigated translusant panels would be better? We don't have extreme heat in the summer for needing heavy shade. The fiberglass panels let in alot of light but not sure how they hold up long term? Hubby wanted the grass in the runs, I think they will turn into a hard packed dirt run like we have now with regular chicken traffic. At least covered partly it will stay drier but still allow bugs, breeze and sunlight in. I have seen some posts where they put tarps on one or two sides to help block wind and keep snow out. Our nasty months last and last. Any thoughts?
