Hi. I'm in Nova Scotia, Canada and we've had a bit of rain in the last little while. My question is how can I keep my run a bit dryer. Sounds dumb but it seems to be taking so long to dry up after each rain and I'm nervous that this will cause bacteria and the like. My chickens don't have anywhere to dust bathe and I've had two that I had to remove because they were acting odd and ill. The coop itself is up off the ground, dry, and well ventilated. I clean it thoroughly every two months. I put in sea sand and potash for them to bathe in today but that won't last past the next rain I doubt. Does anyone out there have any suggestions? Should I perhaps put some gravel in there, rake it up, what???
