Yeah, it's very muddy here too. The snow melts around the coop, but lately the ground has not been absorbing anything, so there are standing puddles. There used to be grass, but whenever it was exposed, hungry beaks ate it down to nothing, and it is still in that situation. Hope it hasn't given up for good. I did take some straw down to get them up above the mud. Their dirty feet make the eggs dirty, and I worry they will get something, like fungal infection or frost bite or trench foot. So for now the straw looks kinda nice..
