    Can anyone tell me what to use for the roof cover of this type of PVC Coop. Is the coop skeleton made entirely from PVC Electrical Conduit? What is used for the roof. Is it PVC Canvas cloth or something similiar.

    I've seen people use tarps for a roof over a pvc run.

    I never tried it, but when planning a hoop coop, I was thinking of using the PVC plastic panels, you know the corrugated plastic panels? They could curve around the coop's shape and last longer than tarps.

    Sorry about that guys. What happened to cut and paste. I have seen a similar pic on BYC some time ago. The top had a sort of roof cover made from PVC cloth or something. Does anyone have the pic.
