We built our run and now that it's almost finished, I can see where we are going to have some issues. I realize now that I want at least a partially covered run for shade, protection, and inclement weather. Problems: 1. I see now, that run off from the coop when it rains/snows will cause some issues. It's on an incline, but I still don't want it any muddier than it has to be, if at all. Not sure if gutters can be installed on this type of roof? We've never installed gutters before, so not sure how and what type. 2. He put the posts in level (for the most part), and even if we put a tin roof on this it will need to be sloped for the same reasons as above. (Sigh) Is there a way we can build up the one side by the shed so that the roof will slope away from the coop? (Preferably without having to take this thing apart) We were just going to wire the top with chicken wire, but that won't work for the reasons stated above. I need to do something pretty quickly, as we do have hawks in the area. Right now, I have a cage covered with white material to shade the chicks during the heat of the day. It gets full sun about 3-4 hours per day. I've also been using frozen water in milk jugs during that time. 3. Also; even on the part that will only be wired with chicken wire, I see we'll have to add more braces/wood to staple the wire to. I don't know why we didn't consider that. Doh! Never again will I buy animals before my setup is ready and better thought out! Lesson learned... This pic shows the side of the run that butts up to the coop and the top construction. The run is 32' long and the width is roughly 7' 9"
