    As much as i LOVE rain!!! My poor girls seem to be miserable. They have a run that they are in while im out at or at school, and all the hay, dirt and stuff are all BLEH! All soggy and squishy, and I dont want the chooks to get bored during the day till i get home and they come out to the whole yard. What can I give them to do? Or anything to make them happy???[​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. X2 on the link that Kelsie2290 has given you. Do you have a roof over your run? If not, that would be a good place to start. Also, course river sand or fine pea gravel for bedding in the run will help a lot. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. What kind of hens do you have?
