Must mean you have decent drainage in the run and the' flooding' was due to extreme rainfall.update:
went out this morning to check on the run. in almost all of the run, the leaves, wood chips, and new pine shavings did their job and absorbed all of the moisture and are sitting well above the dirt floor.
ive got a plastic deck box that holds food, extra bedding, etc that i left against the back wall of the run. the water coming off the roof was splashing off of the box and making a muddy mess
i threw a wheelbarrow full of dry dirt on that spot and leveled it out. until the gutter is on, i moved the box a few feet away from the run.
the coop was bone dry, which has me feeling good because we got a TON of rain.
@Allsfairinloveandbugs ill pick up some zeolite this weekend and throw it in the run and then take everything around. thanks.
Don't bother with the zeolite in the run. Yes, it will absorb moisture but it's real purpose is to absorb ammonia. It works great on poop boards.
