Let me start off by saying that I live in the desert, so rain is not usually a problem. I have straw lining the run, which has been working great.... up until now. We had a surprise storm that caused the straw to get soaking wet, and now I can't figure out how to get it dried out again. I thought it had been drying okay on its own from getting scratched and moved around by the chickens, but it's still not quite right. The straw has now been damp (just barely, but still noticeable) for too long, and I feel terrible about it because I think some of my birds now have favus I'd been keeping their feet clean by washing them every few days, but that only goes so far... So what should I do with the straw? Should I scoop it all out and replace it? Should I start using something else in the run instead? Should I have a more permanent covering over the run so this doesn't happen again?
