    I tried sand, but it was just so wet and we ended up tracking it EVERYWHERE!!

    oh... do you have drainage issues?..are your runs covered?...maybe motorcycle-chick( I'll have to ask her ), could help fill-in on how she is doing w/ her method.... I know I"ll have at least a million questions on the fermenting thing and the sand too..[​IMG]

    I think Bruce was talking about quitting the fermented feed...as it wasn't helping add weight to his meaties as he'd like last we talked.

    Galgo, you're added.

    When I left at 11 this morning for my chiro appt the roads were an absolute mess! I called fiancee and told him he had 2 choices, meet me at the chiro or meet me at Home Depot, either way, he was NOT to drive over the mountain. I saw 3 tractor trailers have major issues with the mountain (switch backs). He left his office in Harrisburg at noon. What should have been a 45 minute drive home took OVER 2 hours! Meanwhile...I sat in my jeep in the parking lot waiting for him.

    My runs are covered, but still get wet. And yes, drainage is an issue!

    I'm hoping that where we are planning to put the coop now (at the new location)..that it will be ok, there is a cement slab already there and we were just going to put the sand over it...It will also be protected on three-sides from wind, we are going to build a lean-to "roof" over the whole thing..(.will get pictures on here as soon as I can figure it out)...not sure if I'll need tp put up spouting or not..will have to see how it all works once it's all up...hoping there aren't any low-areas we aren't seeing yet/now...that would be a problem w/ draining......Does anyone think putting the sand directly on top of the cement-slab would be an issue?
