The last few weeks the dust has been so bad in the dirt floor coop. It has not been an issue before. I have shavings and a little DE on the floor. What do you recommend to keep it down without adding moisture. Are there any miracles for this???

I shouldn't do this but
I live in the desert and nothing could be as bad and the dust storms and dust devils whipping around up here. I just live with it. It is a bit annoying when the roo falls off his perch and kicks up a dust storm in the hen house, but it's also funny.

I too live in the desert and the roo is the worst! He is making such a mess of the coop, before I added him to the mix of girls the issue was not so bad. I can hardly breath when I enter and I know this is going to affect them breathing wise, so I was hoping somebody knew a trick or I am going to start running their misting system a little again.

We have a fan mounted in the hen house above their door and it's set on a time. It helps some. We also use straw to cover the floor. It's not perfect, but it certainly helps.
