Our current run has wire netting over the whole roof, but years ago before we got our own chickens, I was part of a community garden that had a couple hundred chickens. The run was too big to make covering it practical, so we strung lines of wire a couple feet apart along the top, and hung old CDs and DVDs every foot or so along each wire. The idea was that the CDs hanging in the breeze created flashing reflections that appeared as a barrier to any overhead predators. It seemed to work, since we never lost any to hawks.
