Full of Poop

We’ve had quite a bit of rain here in the past two days, so the chicklets had to stay under shelter. I know it’s been a couple of years since I last raised pullets and I’ve forgotten a lot, but geez, how could I forget how much they poop? Food in, poop out.

They have a cat carrier for extra protection when they need it and they love sitting on top of it. You know what that means, right? It is the most disgusting thing to have to pick up every morning and wash inside and out. There is no space that hasn’t been smeared with poop.

This morning, since they’ve been incarcerated, their habitat got a thorough cleaning. All the bedding came out, and fresh, dry bedding replaced it. I made a hook to hang their water-er from after receiving a suggestion from a friend that it would make changing the water much easier- and it does! So thanks for the suggestion!

I look forward to clear weather so they can go back out in their run during the day. I know they are too. It’s important that they have fresh greens, fresh air, clean water, clean food and clean surroundings. It’s hard to make that happen in a confined space.
