I moved my 20 chickens into their new coop wed nite, laid down a huge amount of dry leaves from last year. (THAT was a mistake for me, I discovered the dust from the leaves left me getting asmatha from it.) Today, I went in with a face cover to get the leaves out and put down straw instead. Either one of the litters had chickens sliding all over the place. This is NOT good. They keep scratching bare places and inevitibly someone jumps/flies off the poop shelf or just getting away from someone harassing them and they go sliding. Somebody is gonna get hurt, either wrenching or breaking a leg or keel. The coop is 8 X 12, and there will be a pop hole and small fenced area until I get the real fencing in which will be something like 16' X 26'. I will be building this temp fencing in the next few days. What can I do to fix this? Do I put down another bale of straw? and what do I do with the big poopboard? its got lino on it too and I dont want anyone sliding there either? This is making me crazy! This coop cost megabucks to build and has been nothing but trouble from the very first. The 6 4X4 posts started twisting after concreteing them in and building started. It was too late to yank it all out and start over, since the walls were started.
