This is a follow-up to my post on spring cleaning the chicken coop (which I’m happy to say has been crossed off our to-do list!).

A friend of ours just picked up her chicks and is so excited…keeping chickens has really caught on! She’s asked me to share our how-to’s for keeping our little flock happy. Some of the tasks we do daily, some less often, but before you know it, they’ll all become second nature.

Each day…

1. Make sure the run is secure (no predator digging in the night), then let the hens out for the day.

2. Rake the bedding to freshen it up.

3. Refill feeder and waterer (rinsing out if needed), check level of grit…does it need refilled?

Mary, you are so totally organized. Me, not so much. I have tried to sit down a write method of procedures for my projects but then I never follow them so I figure what's the point in having them. Most of my projects are a general overview in my mind and then one step at a time for accomplishing the project. Maybe that's why it takes so long to get one finished. :0) Have a great organized day.
