Hi All, I'm relatively new to chickens and just got a few sexlink pullets. I framed a 3 foot high run for them that is covered with wire mesh. I am considering adding a tarp over the top to keep the run from getting too wet and muddy due to rain and snow. I've read a lot of the posts on this and understand that I will need to be carefull to make sure the water can run off and my structure can support the weight of some water. But because my run is only about 3 feet high, and is already in an area that is shaded most of the day, I think the tarp would block almost all direct sunlight. They would be in shade all day. Is this a probelm for their health or for laying? I'm new at this and would appreciate any wisdome you care to share. Thanks!
