Hey! So, today the weather was quite bad in Vancouver and the duck run was getting really muddy to the point where there are puddles within the run. I need help deciding on a good drainage flooring like sand or pea gravel but wont freeze during the winter. :barnie We are slowly working on the roof however there are still gaps. Any suggestions for the floorring? Its for the duckies, just a heads up.

We used 2 pallets and put a single sheet of plywood over them. Works great for us! Pallets are free and you might could go to a construction site and pick up enough pieces of board or plywood to piece something together for over the pallets.

I still always use chopped straw. I know others have said they had probs, but it has NEVER done anything bad for me. Periodically, I shovel it out, and replace. The material I remove becomes the compost pile, and works just wonderfully, to fertilize my trees and plants.
