    Heck my chickens have been in the mud all winter long can't seem to dry up around here.They have a dry coop to roost in. Their run area may be huge this is just a small pic. Doesn't worry me since the look good with no signs that I see from the pics of poor health birds.

    Wow that is great and I hope you all do well, the mud/feces etc is a breeding ground for worms and diseases, you can't tell the health of a flock from pictures. From a picture you can only see the conditions they are raised in and go from there. Also, Mottled Javas are supposed to have yellow/slate colored legs by APA standard which I don't see from the picture. JMHO
