Great idea, I have been complaining for the last couple of days, to the ducks of course for making a mess. Seems as I'm changing wet shavings 3 & 4 times a day. It's such a waste of bedding, so I've been drying it in the sun and reusing ( I pick out any waste before reusing).

I'm going into town today and will pick up supplies. I have a small dog play yard I use when I put them out doors for unsupervised play time. (Don't have to worry about them running off) I'll bring that into garage and put some kind of padding down then place everything in it. My house is too small to have them indoors. When i get everything finished will try to post pictures.

We have been trying to build a coop for several weeks, but due to rains haven't accomplished much. Poor chickens are in a small store bought coop that's too small for all of them. Will probably have to buy another one and another dog yard and break into two groups but keep the area where they are outside together, if it keeps raining. The weather is so unusual this year.

Even my garden is struggling with the temp changes. First it's cold and rainy, then we'll have nice warm sunny week, then it's back to cold and rainy. Less than a month ago we had snow and it killed all my seedlings.
