    I really like the idea of a green roof from this thread - https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=65644&p=1

    And I wondered if there were any updates on how the green roof coops are holding up.

    Problems?
    Pics?
    How many people have a green roof coop?
    Anyone with snow build up problems?
    What did you plant on your roof?

    You may find this link helpful. Click on the link to green roof building, a PDF page that shows how to line a roof for this. They also route the runoff water into a greywater tank that can be used to water the rooftop garden in dry periods. I toured this setup and want it for my root cellar roof, too. They have worked out all the bugs.
