This winter has just been one long strech of rain and wet so far and my coop is definitely reflecting that... I feel terrible for my birds and I feel like I'm a bad chicken mom becuase my coop is just horrible! I have given up on DLM for the front half of the coop and pretty much strip it every week or every other week. It's just damp and disgusting within days of changing out the bedding. The run isn't muddy thanks to the footing I put in but it kind of smells even though I clean it regularly. I'm really at my wits end with it right now. I picked up a couple of supplies this weekend that I really hope will help. First I grabbed a huge tarp from my parents place that will cover most, if not all of my run. I am REALLY hoping this will cut down on the amount of moisture that makes it in the coop door. I also bought some Stall-Dri that I'm going to put down on the floor underneath the new shavings when I strip it this week. I'm also going to sprinkle it in the run once it's covered and I'm praying it takes care of the odor. I intended to by DE but they didn't have any in. The stall-dri was only $12 which was less than half of what I expected to spend on DE so I hope that will work becuase it's so much more affordable! Anyone else have ideas on keeping the run and coop dry and comfortable in these horrible wet months?
