    Our outside area that's fenced for the chickens is dirt. I live in Washington and the rain is starting, now the dirt is turning to mud. Is there something I can put down that will help it to not be a huge mud pit???

    I would agree with the sand advice.

    or, let ur chickens try the mud, mine LOVE it! they get so excited after i have watered the garden or the rain has fallen.... of course they love thier dust baths too. we also add our yard clippings to their run... that might be a free alternative for you too.

    Most people cover at least part of the run so chicks can stay dry & have shade. I use a tarp
