    I am planning on going with a ridge vent. I didn't care for the $50 price tag on the plastic stuff, especially since you can't get it in a coop sized roll.

    While digging around lowes I found these metal ones for pretty cheap and they come in 8' sections. Anyone have any experience with them?

    I couldn't find it on the lowes website but here's a website for a company that makes them, they're in the top right corner. http://www.lomanco.com/index.php/vents/ridge-vents#!prettyPhoto[galleryfb1ec99b5e]/2/

    Thats what I got except mine were missing the material so I spent $11 on 2 of the 4' pieces; I figured it would vent better without the material anyway lol.
