OK so yes, we procrastinated, All winter, the chicken's droppings kept piling up under their perch, because they slept in the same spot every night. It was too frozen to shovel out, so it got up to be a big mound of stinky droppings. Finally, when the weather warmed up, we were planning on scooping out the poo and using it for gardening. But we got busy with other things and pushed it aside...and it kept getting stinkier and the mound got bigger... Now, I noticed how bad it really is. It smells bad! The whole coop floor is covered in poo and the pine shavings are dirty. I scooped out most of it and it's all moist underneath because of the large mound of poo. I got most of it out and will soon put new layers of pine shavings down. Hopefully it won't get so bad again!
