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....

    This seems like a good idea - and it looks really nice in the run. Please keep us posted on how it works out.

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

    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!!
