So it's been raining for months now and my chicken run has completely turned to mud. I was holding off doing anything as I thought the rain must stop at some point, but no. It smells really bad and because the hens are carrying mud around with them the eggs are filthy. The run is covered by a tarp roof but this isn't doing much but keeping the food dry apparently. I have read that guttering will help and creating shelter from the direction the rain blows in from, but I could do with a quick fix on a low budget. Also if I put a sheet up to stop rain blowing in I think it would act like a big sail and my run would blow away as it is weighted down but not fastened. Any ideas would be great.
