New coop, new run, new problem. The ground is really uneven and after all the rain we had, my poor chickens are practically swimming. I know that's not healthy to begin with, but what's worse is they're scratching their food out of the feeder, and leaving bits on the ground, so now it's not only mucky out there, it smells bad enough to gag a maggot. That sour, moldy, icky smell. I need something to put out there to soak up the water (and smell). If at all possible I'd like to use something, you know, FREE, or really cheap. Any ideas? Please?
