Help!!! I took off 2 vacation days to clean my existing coops and runs;we are adding another coop with adjoining runs and I want everything like-new nice. It has been extremely wet =hot + humid here in middle Tennessee (the weatherman said yesterday's high was in the mid 90's and the humidity was 85%!!) So I am out working early at 6:30 this morning raking out and trying to clean the runs and I find that my husband had put thick layers of hay/straw in there and oh what a mess. The wetness combined with the underlying uneaten feed was just a feeding ground for flies and the stench is unreal. What in the world can I get TODAY to alleviate that terrible odor and make a nicer place for the chickens to scratch around in? Of course I managed to uncover loads of nice earthworms which they are happily scratching around and eating right now. I thought I would let it air out so to speak and maybe dry out for an hour or two. Then off to the farmers coop I will go if I only know what it is I am after! Any suggestions would be extremely appreciated!!! I do have a big load of sawdust to put in one section of their run for them to have a nice place on the outside to dust themselves. I also have several bales of pine shavings but at this point I don't know if the pine shavings will be better or not. I have read that agricultural lime would be good to sprinkle over the run and or coop to cut down on the odor and to aid in drying it out. I just don't know where to turn at this point but I know that I am going to have to go back outside in a minute and start back to work on it. Please help!
