I need advice; the more posts the better for me. I am a dysfunctional housewife who started a small farm animal refuge this June. The animals keep coming, which is odd as we never found chickens found in downtown Montreal, but somehow people find sheep, pigs, goats, ducks.... We just finished building the barn (hurrah) and the chickens have their own corner to roost in with an easy Deep Litter method running smoothely. I have put the ducks in with the goats and pony in one large love-in as one muscovy is brutal to the chickens and my blind female (muscovy) gets picked on by the chickens. How do I keep the Uber-Stall (where the ducks spend with night with the goats and pony) from being a humid swampy mess this winter? I leave water buckets out and the pony and goats have learned to drink fast before the ducks muck it up but what about the slippery poos? I have old hay and some shavings as bedding on top of cement (it was the law here). What does everyone do? How can we budget for this with time and money? Thank you in advance.
