    What do you want the cover to do?
    Keep chickens in or keep predators out?
    Provide shade? Rain and snow protection?

    We used bird netting, our only goal was to deter hawks. We bought two 7x100 rolls, laid them out in the yard the size of the run and zip tied all the pieces together in one big piece and then put it over the top. Works great! It was around $40 for both rolls.

    We went with corrugated metal.

    Not sure of the size of your run, but with our small coop/run, we are glad that we did (keeps most of the rain out and seems to prevent the forming of mud).
