Ever since it was built we have had a leak problem. But it got a lot worse. I have no money so I need advice on how to fix this leak problem. As quickly as possible. The leak reaches all the way to the floor.

Looks like corragated roofing
Probably leaking through a nail hole placed in the valley. Best to Always place your nails on the hill.
Roof cement or caulk will be my choice, they cost some money though.
Got to take care of it though, it will rot the wood framing and add unwanted moisture to your coop.

as a temporary fix, a bit of caulk - preferably silicone - will fill the spot where the hole is - either because a nail rusted out, the washer around a screw didn't seal, whatever. Then cover with tape - the foil tape used for sealing AC system ducting is best.

If that's not available, just tape will make a temporary seal on the outside.

If neither of those things, plumbers putty will work in a pinch, but very temporary, and will make it harder to adhere tape later.

Is it an attached roof to another roof? Does it have flashing? My lean-to leaked like crazy because he forgot to put flashing between the two roofs. What is all that white stuff for? to stop the leak?
