It;s pouring rain outside and when i turned my RIR's out of their coop they ran out into the run but their feeder is uncovered and the layer crumbles quickly became a gooey mess. They weren't really interested in that and just sorta looked at me. what does anyone else do in a situation like this?I can't feed them inside the coop due to all the hay and poop, if it was just hay i wouldn't worry but I keep about 5 inches of hay in there and with them roosting over it , I don't want them scratching thru all that mess to look for something to eat. Mother to 24 RIR's. 1 pit bull,1 poodle mix 1adorable yorkie 1 cat, and baby sitting 1 great Dane, and best of all 1dh of 54 years.
