I am having real trouble with a couple of my runs and MUD! One is permanent and can't be moved, the other is a 9x7 dog run which has a small coop inside it. We have moved it a couple of times when it gets real bad but we have hit a really rainy season.....that is.... after almost 3 years of virtually no rain! Now I am expecting and can't help with moving the run and coop which can be tricky without enough people. It's our bantam run and it's just not good conditions for my poor chickens to be in, not to mention the smell! (with my current morning sickness I can't even go in the backyard!) We need to figure out a fix for it before my birds get sick. My other issue run is my big girl run with my standard laying flock, I find that letting them out (weather permiting) to free range a couple of days helps it to dry up faster. But I think the only option would be to bring in some sand since we can't move it. Cost is also an issue. suggestions appreciated!!!
