I'm fairly new to the chicken thing so please be patient with me ;-) Our climate is really dry here and I don't normally have this problem. But we are going through our "wet" season and the girls' feet get really muddy and poopy all the time. GAK! The problem is leading to dirty eggs. The nests are clean. But I think as the girls stomp out their little spot in the nest, and touch any other eggs in there, the eggs are getting dirty. Since I sell my eggs I like them to be really clean, and I prefer not to wash them. I would rather prevent the issue. The nest box is on the far wall of the coop so they have to walk across all of the nice clean, dry bedding (roosting areas are cleaned first thing in the mornings). Any ideas???
