Watch for mold and mites/lice/flies/etc. (Housing)

I would change the bedding frequently in the conditions you describe.

Especially hay can get moldy and encourage pets (mites, lice, etc.) to hatch and thrive when wet and warm.

I would change the bedding frequently and work on making a floor off the ground to move the A-frame on, when the floor is done.

Our run has the same problem you describe and I have to clean it out a lot when it rains.

Our coop floor is about 12" off the ground and stays clean at all times - this is so much better for maintenance in the long run that I think it is worth the construction effort and cost.
