We have a large outdoor run and its been scratched down to the dirt. My chooks have a roosting coop but not big enough to "live" in. Its been raining for 3 days now (almost flooding) and we have another few days of rain forecast. Their run is mud already and I've had to move their food into the coop to keep it dry. (Which also worries me about contamination from droppings) Does anyone have any tips or tricks for avoiding the swamp in the run? Granted the run wasnt planned as we needed it built in a hurry so nothing was planned flooring wise. Would a layer of straw or something to soak up the water help? Im trying to avoid mould and mildew building up.
