  18. Hi Kaz no there is no shade or any sort of covering over the roof unfortunitely where the breeding roon is we can gain NO access to the rear or sides of the roof only the front other wise i would raise a shade cloth as a double roof any chance you or family can fit some insulation inside up attached to the ceiling Dodger ? I have put insulation in the walls and 2 inch thick polystyrene sheeting is glued to the inside ceiling of the birdroom roof. Some people I know have used the lids of the polystyrene fruit and vegies conatiners...freely given at a lot of fruit and vegie shops. The polystyrene reduces inside temp at my birdroom by 15 degrees. Thanks Kaz its a thought ill see what i can arrange
