I know this topic has been covered time and time again but there just HAS to be a better answer. I live in Charlotte NC and it has done nothing but rain for a month...red clay+water=horrible, nasty, sticky mud!!!!! I tried digging a drain....it kinda worked...I tried sand....I would have to be a millionaire to buy enough sand to fix this issue. During the summer we got leftover hurricane rain and I put down straw just to keep my girls up off of the mud.....well....that compacted, smelled to high heaven and invited rats. Here's the kicker.....my run is covered....AND 3/4 of it has been winterized with plastic sheeting. (so much for winter..it's 70) The water is seeping in from the ground outside of the run....and there doesn't seem to be anything that I can do about it....they have a dry coop but they love to dig and they just can't right now. Short of pouring a concrete floor and filling it in with dirt....does anyone have an idea to dry this mess up? At this point I am low on $$$ and fresh out of ideas.
