Overcast but nice
Once I got it going I was outside feeding the chickens as usual. I then let them out in the grazing pen to graze as I wanted them out of the roosting area so I could do some work in there.
Moving the poo dirt around
I needed to move the poo dirt under the roosts to places it might do some good growing stuff.
I dug this dirt which is mixed with woodchips out and put it in the wheelbarrow to move to where it is needed which is where I’m growing things.
I dumped a load of the poo mulch in this grow pen. Not too much as it’s likely a bit on the hot side. I spread it all out a bit later and will let the chickens in here to spread it around even more.
Another roost area
I also dug out the other roosting area here. I moved about four loads from this spot to various spots around the yard.
When I went to go through the gate to another spot the chickens wouldn’t let me through the gate without letting them follow so I had to throw some food out here to distract them while I wheeled the wheelbarrow through the gate. It worked.
I went to the woodchip pile and loaded the wheelbarrow with woodchips and dumped a load each on each roost where I removed the poo dirt from.
I dumped some of the poo dirt in this garden area and spread it around a bit eventually.
I was going to dump this load of poo dirt in the garden but I decided it would be of more use in the blueberry patch just behind the wheelbarrow. Most of the blueberries are blooming right now.
Mulch pen area
I also dumped two loads of woodchips in the chickens mulch area were I feed them stuff. What was there was getting real worn down so it needed the chips.
After all that I was a bit beat so I napped for awhile then came back out and just puttered around the yard for the rest of the day as it was a nice spring day.
That was my day. Nice day.
That was a lot of pushing dirt, mulch and poo around but I’m sure you have it all under control!
The chickens are your buddies and like to be wherever you are. Scattering seeds was a good trick.
It sounded like time for some chair hopping.
That was one busy day you had but got a lot done.
