I did it to myself, a few days ago I told someone here that I didn't have to worry about moisture in my in barn coop cause I had great ventilation. Today I went into the coop and it just stunk. I couldn't figure it out until I took a better look around. My husband was home this weekend and without my knowing he secured plastic over the vents above the coop, Now this is way too high up for me to remove very easily, I know he had good intentions seeing it snowed here the other day maybe he thought the chickens were going to get cold or something. The moisture accumulated and the litter seems damp now. not good at all!!!! My hubby left the ATV and trailer on the back 40 before leaving to go out of town for work, kind of hard to get to it with a 2 yr old stuck to my hip. and I usually place the litter in the back of the trailer and haul it away to the compost pile located about 2.5 acres away from the coop. My question is...for a quick clean up can I just throw the litter in the run and leave it there for a few days?? the litter is shavings mixed with straw. My hubby will be home Friday night and then he can get up on the barn rafters and remove that plastic for me. I just need to know if the litter in the run will cause issues???
