In the Brooder
- Jul 13, 2016
Hi! I'm new to chicken keeping and working on keeping the flies, roaches, ants at bay. My girls are still too young to free range in the pasture so they are confined to a large run currently. We have rocky clay soil and no matter how much sand i add or how much i rake it gets compacted. This lead to lots of wet poo and flies. I have the victor fly magnet and need to empty it twice a week. I also have roaches and ants in the coop. I build this feed system https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/704443/diy-chicken-feeder-pipe/240 and have begun capping it in the evening but I still have ants going in. Advice?
