I am really thinking about making a hoop run this year for my chickens. I have a run right now but it was extreamly hard to keep the run dry. The plastic i had on the top kept getting holes in it. So my big question is, what kind of pvc to use? I live in indiana and it is a pain with the weather. Like say some years it snows quite a bit, and some it doesn't. Also it can get kind of hot, 95 at times. I heard that pvc gets brittle in the sun. Is there some kind of type that dosen't get brittle in the sun? And would it be strong enough to hold snow or ice? Cuz thats a big deal, i dont want to even think about it if it will be weak and not do its job on keeping the birds in and things out. Or standing up to the weather. So other hoop run people what did you do and did you use pvc? Thanks.
