how wet can a chicken get...serious question - Page 3

post #21 of 22
My concern as a new chicken owner is...is it okay for them to constantly be walking in water? The coop is covered however it gets really soggy. So they walk in their crap and peck the ground for food. It seems unsanitary for me but just wondering if normal and ok?

I'm in the same boat! Usually, my
girls free range, but I'm out of town now and know that it's probably a little flooded in their run with all the rain. Wondering if I need to bother the babysitter to put more shavings down or if they're okay for another couple days?
