My chook run does not get very muddy, becasue we are on a slope so any water just runs off.

The dirt tends to get muddy on rainy days like now, and the chooks have no hesitation bathing in the mud >__< Oh well... I probably don't have time to give them a bath before the garden visit *sigh* I tend to put some mulch on the ground but they would scratch them and expose the dirt anyways... but still good for collecting chook manure for the compost bin, much easier to just sweep up the mulch then removing dirt.

Nice chook run btw Lyn ~~

I just put grass clippings from the mower. It is a dirt floor. The house itself has a wooden floor with dried leaves in it.

I will add some more photos of the house and run so check them out in a little while

Very nice! Your gardens look fantastic too.

Lotte, are you supposed to have something on the floor of the run... I only have dirt - with a little bit of lucerne in one corner to scratch in?

Important note about adding photos:

Always add photos using the "From my computer" option, even if you are on a mobile phone or other device.
