Relatively warm overnight, with no snow, and enough wind to strip what had fallen back a great deal… made for a good night of calving! No entries into my “calf in a bag”! Yippee!
That meant my morning could be turned over to something I’ve been neglecting… spring cleaning my chicken coop! Whoop. Whoop.
I had to remove various cages and cardboard left over from their chick days. I stole my dog bed warmer back to put under my seedlings. Then, haul out loads of straw and poo to the compost pile in our work sled since a wheelbarrow would sink in the mud and remaining snow. I also had a run up to the calving shed for a bale of clean straw.
I bought these chicks last fall… and so depending on the breed, they may start laying this month. If there are any chicken experts out there, I’d love to know what I have. Not that it really makes a difference. I knew I should have taken a group shot! Maybe another time. I was just happy to get it cleaned for spring… whenever she decides to show up!Find me here!
