    Hi All,

    I am having a new run made for my chicken coop (by someone with much better carpentry skills than my own).

    This time around, i'd like a covered run, to keep the oregon rain off of the girls.... I need to find some pictures to show what I want.

    Can anyone please help me with some pictures of a covered run?

    Thanks so much!

    Here is what I did with my runs. The larger coop is covered in chicken wire with welded wire on top of that. Part of the run is covered with tin to keep out the sun and give the chickens a place to be outside when it rains.

    In my other coop, all the runs are coverd with an extension of the roof line.

    Ours is also an extension of the roof line, using Tuftex roof panels.
