I can't seem to keep up with the thread lately... I missed the last 200 or so posts!
Today was pen cleaning day. Man, I just set these pens and cages up! I also just cleaned a couple of the pens out less than 2wks ago. We've been having issues with the waterers leaking and of course, it makes a stinky mess in the pens. The first time I was hanging the waterers and Devon (son) was not putting enough water in them for them to hang straight. This time he decided to let them sit crooked and let the spouts face the wrong way. He does not pay attention to what he's doing. I just did the waterers with him 2-3 days ago and the back pen was not a gross slop hole. Yesterday it was. So, off to buy shavings.
I will say this much, it used to take us a whole day to do all the pens. It took us less than 4hrs. I even made shavings keepers for in front of the pen doors. At least the shed doesn't stink anymore.
"SHAVINGS KEEPERS" - This sounds like what I need for my indoor chickens. I lose so much out of the front of the cages and it is so aggravating!
How did you make them?
