I have a coop that came with the house that I live in. I don't really have the resources to build a new one at this time. Right now I have 4 six week old hens living in the coop. I also have four more 5 day old chicks in a brooder that will live in the coop eventually. The problem is that the coop is on an angle. The ground is slanted. It is built onto a concrete slab which is at an angle. There is a big privacy fence that is the wall at the upper end of the slant. On the other side of that fence are my flower beds. When it rains alot (which it has been for weeks now) the flower beds get saturated and the rainwater starts to run under the fence into the coop. Then the pine shavings get wet and stinky! this is my first time as a chicken mistress so I would greatly appreciate any advice you might have. should I put in sand? Should I try to caulk the crack btwn the fence and the concrete? Would hay be better than shavings? I'm putting lots of pics below so please give me feedback about the wetness situation and any other potential problems w/ the coop. By the way, the chickens have a large run to roam in safely during the day so they are only in the coop at night or while they are napping during the day. Thanks so much!
