We have had so much snow and rain this winter that my chicken yard and pasture is flooded with many areas of 3 inch deep mud when the water recedes. I have heard this is not safe for chickens and can breed disease. Unfortunately, there is nothing I can do about the problem. I laid pallets down so the chickens would have something dry to walk on. I am curious about the types of diseases this can cause and if there is anything I can do to prevent my chickens from developing health issues. I am keeping the coops as dry as possible and the feed is only in the coops. Any information would be very helpful. Thank you P.S. My ducks are having a blast with all the water.
