Suntuf White Opal 72″x26″ (10 Pack) – Chicken coop weather cover
These panels are so easy to use that I was able to build a cover for my chicken coop in the first try, even as a beginner.
They are simple and are sturdy to. It keeps both rains, flying predators, sun, and snow off.
The size is perfect for 1 person to handle, and quite sturdy! They are quite sturdy but allow enough light through so your chooks get the required sunlight they need.
This comes at a great price and is cheaper when compared to my local hardware store and is even stronger than it.
I installed them and with the nailing, they didn’t even scratch or crack under pressure. Really tough stuff!
