We had a 10x12 pen for our chickens at our house which we sold at the end of October. We live in Colorado by the way. When we sold the house one of the conditions was we were to take down the fencing/pen and make the soil "plantable". I took down the fence and took a shovel and simply turned all the dirt over. Unfortunately the new owners are contesting that we did not meet the "plantable" requirement. What am I missing here? By the time they can plant in the spring the poop in the soil should be broken down making the dirt ripe for planting.
