    My babies were moved outside on Wednesday and of course...it RAINED! We put a tarp over their run and we thought the coop was fine however when I went out there to check on them there was water down the back of the coop and the shavings were wet. I fixed it so it doesn't leak but how bad is the dampness of the shavings, should I take them ALL out and replace the whole thing or can I just add some dry to the top and mix? Oh and BTW, I don't like having them out there...my babies. [​IMG]

    You'll need to get rid of any wet shavings or it will mold.
