I would like to check out with other chucky keepers, I have just gone through my first winter with Lottie, Lucy & Linda (Shavers)
My run is 3.5 metres x 2 metres. The coop and run are joined together.
In winter we had heaps of RAIN and I let the girls into the run when ever posssible.
I do have a question - it's coming up.
Lots of scratching and digging later, I have one big quagmire of mud, I tried saw dust or the odd handful of clean straw.
Lots of scratching and digging later and more rain, it's still a quagmire. And it can get pongy/smelly. Should I be worrried or not?
Also, I probably was worried they would get foot rot??
? Do other the chicken keepers worry about this?
