We have had a big snow blizzard today, and the plastic roof that was held by 2x6's flew away after the blizzard ! Now all 22 birds in all are in 7x7. I have 2 other coops in the run, but they all wanted to be in the same shed I guess. Now for a long time, we wanted to change their current location due to some distance and water issues. I wanted to go portable but looks like that's not going to happen. If I buy them a big shed or a big chicken coop, do they still need the roof to be covered with shingles or any other covering options ? Can it just be with chicken wire or fenced in to protect them from predators ? And they can hang out in the coop when it rains or snows ? The old roof did eliminate rain and snow. I just don't know. Any suggestions, ideas, pic's will be greatly appriciated. I will post pic's without the roof tomorrow.
