While hoeing out under the tree Im going to build the coop next to, I found something out. I have a lot of crap!! We used the spot as a storage spot for campfire wood and other yard items for years. It was one of those 20 minute jobs that took six hours . I guess some of the wood along with some pine needles had rotted down and started to become a dirt-like substance. After transporting 10 or so wheelbarrow loads of wood, tons of toys, and I cant even tell you how many loads of wood-dirt; I was questioning if I wanted chickens or not!!!! So I said to heck with it and went and had a beer. I want chickens again.
