hey, how do you keep nasty smells out of the coops and runs
keep it clean
In the coop:
-Plenty of ventilation
-Absorbant material on the floor such as wood shavings or chips
-Clean the poop board often
-Use Sweet PDZ to absorb moisture on the poop board and floor and it eliminates ammonia and cuts down on other smells http://www.tractorsupply.com/webapp...ory_rn=&top_category=&urlLangId=&cm_vc=-10005
In the run:
-Use sand in the run
-Clean (rake) weekly
why is it that the coop floor, when i remove the wood shaving every week, it's always damp
also, how to get rid of massive puddles, ive heard there'll be the worst storm in britain since about 1987. I'm scared
Maybe you aren't using enough shavings.
If you keep things DRY, there will be very little odor, and no need to clean as often
First you need to figure out where the water is coming from, and then you can work on preventing it
Quote: Fill them with sand, and build up the entire run area so water flows AWAY from it
will i need to replace the sand
No, not in a run.
You may need to add more later as it settles or blows away, but it wont have to be removed and replaced
