I have a 12' by 24' run that with about three days of rain has become a complete mud pit. I'm talking two to three inches of slimy mud in at least half of the coop... I cant even walk through its so bad. We are thinking sand would be the answer, but I just want to check others experience on here. If we put in sand 3-5 Inches deep, do you think this will be enough to combat our mud problem? We were thinking to pick it up tonight, but I just want to make sure its going to work before I go spend all this money!
