    well i decided to clean the litter out of the henhouse.an man was that a big job.i worked 5hrs spread out over 2 day.hauled prolly 20 wheel barrors or more of litter.as well as leven the dirt floor of the henhouse.moving nests an stuff around.finally going to turn it into a 12 by 12 brooder house.since i have a 20 by 36 henhouse.so i can have a few hene say 300 hens.but aint getting that big.
