Coop Cleanup

Today was a crisp Fall day up here in New England, just perfect for closing up the coop and yard. The coop is all cleaned and ready for next year, the yard is raked and the whole place is tidied up. 

  
The chickens all went to grateful families, and next year we will get a new flock. We are thinking of some Indian Runner Ducks for a change. I had ducks for many years and just love them. They make a mess with water, so that will be our challenge to solve. 

We use the firepit a lot, so the ash buildup went into the freshly turned composter.  

  All of the chicken coop hay went in there too. The sweet dark compost went towards fertilizing the shrubs.
