    Chicken Run
    So recently i made a run and my coop is in side my run and the coop is made out of plywood so i have alot of roofing tin so i was thinking about covering to roof of the run (now is chicken wire) with the roofing tin to keep the plywood coopfrom geting weathered and more protection from hawks would this be a good idea?

    Yes. Roofing over the run helps keep the rain from turning your run to soup, and encourages the birds to come out of the coop in wet weather.
