Turkey grit in run

Turkey grit in chicken run

    So, Oregon has ALOT of rain and my run is a muddy mess. After hours of research I decided to cover half my run with turkey grit, which is slightly smaller than pea gravel.
    The run is not covered so I’m banking on the rocks being cleaned by the rain... We have the run built on a slope so drainage is good.
    Gosh I hope this was a good decision! I’ve attached pictures....

    Unfortunately a very basic article. A good tip yes but more description f pics would really improve the article.

    Try deep litter. It soaks up all that water no problem.

      I’m super nervous to try that... But if this does not work I may look into it again. So far so good… I think when winter is over I will know if this was a good decision. Just really curious if it is going to start to stink or just get filled up too much with poop. We shall see! Merry Christmas!

    Your timing is immpeccable! Someone gave me an unused frame without the tarp in the box. Im have been toying with expanding my coop run area using this frame. Looking at your photos is very helpful. Good job! Looks like a sprintime project for me!!
