Spring Cleaning

I"m not quite sure what happened to winter this year as it seems to have passed us by.  Here it is February and my plants are all blooming and green shoots are growing everywhere!   We took the opportunity of the great weekend weather and went to work spring cleaning our biggest coop that houses our Standard Cochins.

After a couple hours of shoveling out the old shavings, dusting for any pests, and adding some new bedding the cleaning was almost done.  Only thing left was to add some new nesting boxes as our chicks from last spring have finally started laying.  I'm excited about using the wire baskets for the new nest boxes as they should last a long time and be extremely easy to clean.  Both are huge pluses.   The girls seem to really like the new nest boxes too.  In less than 12 hours we had 2 eggs waiting on us
One coop down, two to go....
