It was so easy! First DH & I picked up the coop and moved it off the garden plot.I had put an ad on Craigslist advertizing chicken poop for free, U-Scoop & U can Have and I got a guy who came over and shoveled 4 trash bags of chicken litter up and was happy to have it! Then all I had to do was get DH to help me move the coop back, lay down some wood shavings and enjoy the girls! This was so much easier than I feared it would be. I love my tractor!
