My back porch where I walk outside to the coop is not covered so I cannot leave my shoes outside, especially in Washington where it rains 24/7. Not to mention that I use sand in my run so that sticks to my shoes as well. I was bringing my shoes in and placing them on the mat at the door, but am finding the chicken poop and sand is making it's way onto our carpet somehow! Does anyone have any ideas on how to prevent this? Any input is greatly appreciated!
