Once a week we clean the chicken coop. When we first got the chickens cleaning the coop was easy. Now it's a little more work. They are no longer afraid of us,so they are always under foot. Our coop is very small,As you can see we have to raise the roof to add more straw. I can rake it out thru the small door in the front.
This is before we raked it out. You can see why we have to go thru the roof.I even had to take the picture thru the roof.
This is a picture of the front of the coop. The dog run is there so we can lock them up at night. We have wild animals that would love to have them for dinner. We have a fenced area at the front of the dog run so they have room to scratch around.
Before we can clean I have to give them meal worms to distract them, so they don't follow me around.
They love the stuff. Aren't they pretty. Miss Priss didn't want her picture taken.
This is the straw from the coop. We have to rack it out of the dog run before we can put it in the trash can.
Well it work for a little while. As I was spreading the new hay they showed up and decided to do it for me. They want me to think they wanted to help. But I know they just wanted to look for bugs.
Do you see Miss Priss at the bottom of the picture. For some reason every time Rick takes the water to fill it. She has a fit. You would think we were killing her as loud as she gets.
Happy chickens!. Fresh water, clean home , and full bellies what more could you ask for.
