Weather protection for Walk in Run

Recommended Posts

Can anyone give me ideas for how to keep a walk in run 10' x 10' better protected from weather?  I have a blue plastic tarp over mine now that covers the top and on one side hangs over 3 to 4 feet BUT when we get a good rain.......the whole run is a muddy mess!  Any ideas would be appreciated!  Run is not connected to coop so poor chickens have no where to go when the weather gets bad.  :(

Hi

We made some roll-up blinds from thick UV resistant plastic. Baton top & bottom. Top baton fixed to run - lower baton attacked with bungees.

can roll up blinds (secure in place with velcrose (spelling?) strap in warm weather.

Hope this pic expalins - if not please ask.

Clear tarps from ebay, secured with bungee hooks. Either that or roof over with corrugated clear plastic and use clear tarps on the sides which get most weather.

Following.

We have clear shower curtains on top but I end up getting every piece of plastic sheeting I can find and covering everywhere on dreadful days, as the rain just gets in.

Like the roll up blind idea!
