Mucking Out the Hens

Now we've finally got a bit of sunshine I can go and give the girls a good clean out. It's one of those jobs that I always put off, but once I 'muck in' and begin mucking out I find that I quite enjoy myself. There's nothing more therepuetic than shovelling a bit of muck. I feel better and so do the girls. (Though I sincerely doubt whether they're all that bothered!)

My five hens have got about 200 sq ft to roam around in but they still choose to claw about in their own mess! Thank goodness they've started laying again, I had a shock when I had to find the egg aisle in the supermarket.
