Hi all. I have been a chicken owner for over two years now, and I am well aware of the consequences of a muddy run. My run is about 7.5 feet wide by roughly 35 feet long. Its wedged between a carport and a shed, with about 20 feet or so, extending beyond the space between the two. I have a tarp that covers a good section between the shed and carport, but it doesn't do the best job at keeping it dry. The majority of the run gets muddy when it rains (which is a lot here in the Pacific NW) but there is a patch about 7x7 that stays dry (this is where the feeder and waterer is). I hope that wasn't too confusing. Anyway, without telling me that I need to reinforce the "roof" to maintain more dry ground, what are your opinions on the dry to wet ratio in their run? Should I be concerned or is it nothing to worry about too much since they do have a place to hang out without getting their feet all muddy. They do typically have some mud on their feet almost all the time, but when it gets too bad they don't leave the dry spot often.
