Hi Debbie,


What bedding have you got on top of the flags? Hemcore/aubiose will soak up poo. Have you got a cover over the run to keep it dry?


I bought a rubber broom to get the poo off my patio and it is quite good, it's got a squeegy on one side so good for runny stuff too!

Debbie, I think you really need something on the flags in their run (am I right you don't have anything inside the run?). They really need something to dig about in and also something to dustbathe in if they're not freeranging a lot. You can use a washing up bowl or a cat litter tray in their run.


You can use * hemcore * or * aubiose * - both more or less the same product, it just depends what suppliers near you stock. Both will absorb the poos.

Sorry debbie....I can't quite fathom out what it is you are asking.


I'm guessing that


1. You hens are a bit squitty.




2. Yo are asking about covering the flags with bedding.


Bokashi Bran works wonders for sloppy poos. You can get it in the Omlet shop.


Aubiose is wonderful for absorbing poo in the run. A bale costs around £7 and lasts a good while. Sprinkle it a couple of inches deep. You will have to put a cover oner the top of the run to prevent the rain soaking it though. An old shower curtain will be fine.
