We...learned new chores!

This summer we learned some new chores as we moved the chicks back to their coop and let them settle into their new home. Like every other animal, with pets come poop :) I'd done some research on best ways to clean coops and what to do with their waste and we had our first chances at practicing those new skills mid to late summer. Being in town I am very cautious about keeping our neighbors happy with the smells blowing over from our yard. So far, so good!  The boys were troopers and helped with their part and together we have managed to keep our neighbors and our chickens happy!

 My little pooper scooper!

 He does a great job, really!

 Reminds me of my 4-H days at the fair and cleaning out stalls...only chicken poop is much more pleasant then cow poop :)

 Jaxon was our photographer this day...he's becoming a little story teller of his own.

 And our happy hens can head back in...

Ain't that the truth!
