My DH built me a new chicken pole barn this past summer. I've noticed in the past two weeks that the bedding is damp. I've added more wood shavings and some DE in hopes that it would get absorbed, but it's still damp. (I've been following the "deep litter method") Today I ended up shoveling out all of their bedding (6 inches deep) and replacing it. Before I layed down the bedding I placed 1/4" plywood in one pen and 2 pieces of 1/4" plastic panel in the other pen. I'm hoping this will cut down on the dampness. Any one else have ideas or the same kind of problem? Our weather has been teens during the day and single digits to minus' at night. I'd appreciate any ideas. Thanks.
