    It's those plastic white pipes in Home Depot. They make excellent coop runs, easy to work with (remember Tinker Toys?) and cheap. I made my chicken run out of it too, hoop style.

    Oh OK. I knew what PVC was but the OP called it PCV. I figured it must have been something different.

    Well... I didn't notice it said PCV instead of PVC. It must have been the cocktails I was drinking last night. [​IMG]
