We are new to having chickens, we have two in nice sized run and coop. My immediate problem is the amount of rain and now snow we are getting, the ground is oversaturated and my run is completely swamped. The coop is raised and dry- but the run is terrible. I packed straw in there for the hens to have something to keep their feet out of the mud and standing water. Any suggestions? I'm afraid there might be nothing I can do for them, the whole yard is soggy. My next question is, how does everyone winterize their coops? plastic sheeting ? how does that affect air circulation? Currently we have a roof, but nothing on the sides. the coop is not insulated, but we have a red 85 watt bulb as a heat source inside. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Louisa Annapolis, MD.
