I spent today (which happened to also be my mom’s birthday) cleaning out the chicken house. In some ways it was nice to remember her in this way, as she loved her chickens. In other ways, it was very tough…lots of emotions, including some anger, that it was in as bad of shape as it was. It was a very dusty and dirty job.
We pulled out two old water tubs, one of which was in good shape to reuse, a metal next box to clean, and old wood nest boxes. We’ll have to see what we can salvage. But five hours later we had a space to keep the new flock!
