I finally did it! With the multitude of chores, commitments and work to do, cleaning a hens poopy bum hasn't been high on my list of priorities! Today was the day I got round to it!
So a sink of warm water some baby shampoo plenty of towels a hairdryer and a worried looking hen I made a start!

Ha! That first pic- the look on her face says she knows you’re up to something... she’s giving you the eye.. the one that says.. “Mmhmm.. and just what do you have up your sleeve and how badly am I going to hate it?”! She looks nice and clean tho. I’m sure she’s feeling fantastic now that that’s all over and done with! Ha!

I’m off to clean the coop today. It’s sunny and nice.. finally, after 2 solid weeks of blistering cold and unrelenting snow. It’s definitely past due for a good de-mucking and clean dry straw/cedar chips!

Can’t remember what I did with myself (or thought about, read about, obsessed on) prior to chickens placing themselves in my path. ?? Maybe I was just a normal non- obsessed/always preoccupied person back then?

She's called snowy! She is a bit mucky on her back but I didn't want to totally soak her. Its still a bit cold here.
They do seem to take over your life though! I don't mind. I love spending time with them and seeing them happy!

Perfect name for her! I’m sure she appreciates the bath, now that it’s all finished! I had to totally soak my RIR a couple of weeks ago, so she had to spend the night inside- she wasn’t amused and was glad to get back outside with her pack when morning came. I feel the same way- happy to dedicate a lot of time/energy/thought to them. I can’t find many other things that are any more deserving. They give back a lot too- in the form of eggs, companionship (as weird as that sounds and no matter that 4 years ago I’d have never guessed in a million years I’d be saying that about a chicken haha), and entertainment. I find anymore that I’d rather hang out with them (and the dogs) over most people! They’re much less complicated, quite a bit more loyal.. and seemingly more intelligent than a lot of humans I’ve met.

So true! No matter how bad my day may have been at work they are always happy to see me! Probably because I feed them! Snowy always wants to jump up and sit on my knee. They always cheer me up!
