First off-- this is my first post (aside from my intro), so hi everyone. We've never had chickens before and have spent all summer preparing for them. I'm ecstatic, to say the least, having chickens has been a dream of mine for YEARS. I live with my wife in NW Washington state, the beloved Pacific NW, and the "rainy season" is about to begin. We don't have our chickens yet, we're getting them in a few weeks (rescues), so I'm trying to find a solution to our inevitable rain issue before they get here. I did so much reading, research, etc. and thought we had a fantastic setup (for first-timers), until I realized I missed something so obvious: the rain is going to soak the exposed part of the coop floor (sand) and make the entire area unusable/damp/unhealthy. Here's the enclosure and the coop (I'm on the left): I've asked our small, local Facebook group about the best way to fix this and they said either raise the coop off the ground (and add a floor), build a different coop roof that covers the entire floor area, or get a new coop. While I would love to implement any of those solutions, we've spent so much money on the fence enclosure (my #1 priority) I can't afford any pricey modifications, not this year anyway. So I'm trying to figure out a temporary, affordable solution that can be in place before the chickens arrive (mid-October). Yesterday I was thinking about some kind of tarp fix, but then I wondered if one of those party tent/canopies would be even better, like this one? What if I put one of those around the coop? Yes, it would look very weird, but in theory it seems like it could work..? I'd love any feedback on this idea-- if anyone's tried it, if you think it'd work, etc. Thank you in advance!
