Coop Cleaning

Raking the old shavings into the yard waste bin.
Fresh and Clean Coop

It’s summertime, and the coop requires regular cleanings.

Yesterday I raked out the old pine bedding with the help of my trusty little companion, Isabella. After we cleared the entire coop, we put in fresh, clean shavings.

It looked beautiful.

I think the girls enjoyed it immensely. They’re always curious.

Once we filled the water tank and stocked the Layena Crumble, it was time to rake the run.

The girls got a little squawky when I entered with the steel rake. Isabella found it amusing and joined in with squeals of her own.

Some time and a lot of sweat later, the coop and pen were delightful. Bella reckoned it looked clean enough to sit on the ground with the chickens.

Nothing beats the great outdoors in a chicken coop!

At the end of the day, we even had two eggs to collect from my beloved Tiffany and Lily.

God Bless poultry.

Lots of Love for Lily
