    I recently built my first coop and didn't have a big enough budget to do what I REALLY wanted to do. I thought it would be really cool if I could build a green roof on my coop and use it to grow different wheats and grain my chickens could eat? Has anybody else on here done that?? I really want to see your pics! What kind of layers are necessary to make the roof function the way it should. I spent the extra money while building the coop to make it strong enough to hold the extra weight I just need to know how to do it when my gf says I have enough money to do so:)

    I bet if you google grass/sod roofs you'll get a lot of info. I wouldn't think your crops would be heavier.
