Chicken House Cleaning

We cleaned out the chicken container today; Cait, Mom, Dad and me.  Cold temperatures and moist air in the container from all the chicken respiration creates so much condensation that it seems to rain inside the building in the morning.  All the cold weather in February and not enough bedding made for a dense pack.  The cold also tends to keep the birds inside more and so the manure builds up quickly.  That should be the worst of the year.  We might get the birds back onto grass this month.
