We had a big clean out in the chicken area today. The shed had got very smelly because of all the poop. A group of Room 4 kids braved the smell and got stuck in with shovels and wheelbarrows. We scraped out all the poop and put it on the compost heap.
We think the chooks are pretty happy with their super clean and tidy coop. Our youngest chooks really liked using the tyres to jump up to the branch where they could safely keep an eye on us.
One thing that was not so good was the discovery of a few holes - rat holes! They went from outside the run, under the cage wall and into the run. We'll have to get Mr Gallop and his traps on to these nasty critters!!!!
