Today’s chore? Cleaning the chicken coop!
Oh, it’s definitely not bad with just 6 hens and a rooster… they spend so much time outside, I don’t have to do this very often. Plus Wyoming is SO dry, most chicken poop dehydrates pretty fast! Dry = no smell, so yay!
First, the girls had to leave the coop to start their daily rounds… and Spot had to come check in with Eden. Eden, brave cowdog that she is, hid between my legs and pitifully looked out at Spot.
That’s them in the clean coop… Sorry, I was more worried about the clean coop picture, than pics of them! Anyway… Spot continues to darken… the few speckles she had this summer have multiplied, and she’s turning a dirty white around her head and neck. She still lets me pet and hold her, though on occasion she does it with Attitude.
She’s my biggest hen, but still picked on by the others… I guess her Attitude is well deserved.
Girls with Attitude…
