Yesterday I did the dreaded cleaning of the chicken and turkey coops. In the winter I use the deep litter method so there was a lot of crap in them. I hauled the waste to the garden bed and will till it in when the ground thaws more. Found a couple mouse families in both, the chickens ate a couple of the mice (ick). Not much I can do to keep them out, I don't have food in the coops that is in the runs. I guess living next to a field and woods doesn't help. Now until winter it gets cleaned monthly or sooner.
Today my back and knees are hurting and my legs keep me from getting a good nights sleep. I am pretty much unfortunately used to getting little sleep.
