    I would assume that is regular house metal roofing metal. Just sized to a chicken top. IDK...my husband is a contractor and that looks like the same stuff he orders to go on peoples houses...

    Quote:Looks like it to me. Sold everywhere here and commonly used around here; lasts forever. I get it at Home Depot or Lowe's, or from a local metal working company. Several grades and prices.

    It's not an in-stock on-the-shelves item in all areas -- you may have to special order it. Just talk to the hardware store guys and explain what you want.

    Good luck, have fun,
