Duties after the 9-5

What a wonderful evening!

It rained a little more today.....and because of it John decided it would be an excellent time to scoop the coop.....when the "fluff" is wet.....

We did manage to have dinner first...then in old clothes he filled buckets with "chicken soup" and I dumped them into the lick tub.....it took a while. Then he hosed the coop out. When it's dry...we'll reline it with fresh hay. And you might have guessed by now...ours is on a slab.... but it's just fine if you keep enough hay in there for the hens to scratch...

We both smell "mighty fine" about now. Or to paraphrase a post from a year ago on here.....when a fan said her child would say "Smells like money to me..." ...

(sorry for probably not getting that exactly right...)

Will mix the soup into the compost this week.....and to think people pay big bucks for this stuff....

How's your week going?
