I need some suggestions on how to handle some drainage/standing water issues i am having in my chicken run. Does anyone else have or have had this problem? My run is built on treated 2x4's that are set on the ground. There are couple areas that are possible low spots or dip in the yard that will be dealt with, but I have water in areas that are inside the run and no where near the walls. I have a metal roof over the whole thing and there are no leaks, so the water has to be coming from the ground itself. I need some suggestions on how to handle this. I am limited on money at the moment, as well as being able to do a lot of physical exertion such as digging....but it can be done.....so please keep that in mind with the ideas and possible solutions. Right now here in Southern Ohio we are getting thunder storms and it is 57 degrees, so later this morning when I go out to feed the girls, I will walk into most likely a small indoor pond. Please help.
