    So, now i'm a little worried. I have a coop being built, and my run will be under my bedroom window,at the moment it can't really be helped. There is going to be 25'+ per chicken(8 australorps) and the runs will have 5'+ per chicken. i'm hoping this will keep the smells down. i was planning to use a board under the roosts and DLM in the coop. What has me worried is how wet it's been here(i swear it's monsoon season) . I can't put a cover over the run. Am I going to have huge smell issues?

    I actually just went through this...if finally covered my run with clear corrugated sheets. My runs where always dampa nd smelling horrible....I covered it very simply with those and it made a WORLD of difference!
