It has been raining non-stop here in SW Ohio. We've has flash floods everyday this week. And the run is flooded. Half of the run is covered with a tin roof, half is covered with just hardware cloth. The covered part is in worse condition that the open half. I suppose the sun can dry it out. (Not that I've seen the sun!) I'm also guessing the run slopes down, especially in this corner. In the picture you can see the big puddle. This was taken (a few weeks ago) as soon as I got home from work, to check on the girls, to make sure they weren't floating! At this point, the rain barrel was overflowing right into that puddle. We have fixed that problem, but it is still just standing STINKY water, sand, mud, and poop. We recently revamped the run. Shoveled out straw from the winter (my bad) and shoveled in a truck load of sand. I love the sand!!! But now its about 5 inches of squishy, smelly muck, that I can't bare to leave the girls in. They are currently free ranging alone, while we are at work. I am desperate for advice on how to fix the water/muck issue, and hoping to figure out a plan to prevent this from happening again. I will try to take a more recent pic of how bad it really is. I'm so sad, and feel helpless! I'm thinking we could put in pvc pipe to drain the water into the woods. But then what? Do we just dump new sand/natural mulch on top of the muck yuck? Or do we have to shovel it all out before replacing it with new material. Thank you in advance!
