Newly built coop and I went with sand. Only it's now wet. Wasn't wet when I put it in. I suspect the duck (only 1). The wetness is all around the watering dish and that is raised up on blocks. Seems to be more than a good foot all around it. I thought in this heat, surely it would dry. Not! So tonight I put the blocks on top of a plastic tub lid with the watering dish on top of that. So now there is a "water catcher" - if that is what's doing it. Should I consider taking that wet sand out?? Or do you think it will dry in time (before winter). If the sand is wet during the winter, I suspect that will not be good for freezing little chicken/duck feet. There are 5 chickens and 1 duck living in a 8x8 coop. I'm getting ready to order sand for the run and changing it out is not an issue. What is causing it is. Any thoughts???? Thanks in advance.
