    Well besides my weekly cleaning of brooders waterers ext. I make everything shine three times a year. Today was one of those days. I cleaned everything animal related that I could. I worked almost all day and I'm still not finished. Today I cleaned all of the waterers, feeders, incubators (Ones with no eggs), replaced some heat lamp bulbs, shoveled under cages, hosed off wire, changed bedding in bobwhite pair pens, and tomorrow I have to clean the rabbits:sick chickens and brooders. Anyone else have a not so spring cleaning this week?

    Three times a year?

    I clean cages every other day and sweep each day.... weekly I clean water bottles, food dishes, dust bowls.

    I just clean really good three times a year. I clean stuff as needed which is usually once a week, but three times a year I scrub everything and make sure everything is clean. By cleaning really good I mean spray painting drop pans, washing the whole pen out instead of just sweeping, pressure washing my sheds and sidewalks, replacing parts to cages, sanding stuff, bleaching all of my barrels, sweeping out all of the sheds and the garage, re-organizing, fixing fences, ext. I clean everything weekly, but I do a more detailed cleaning three times a year.

    Down here it was around 55* so I figured I had better take advantage of it since it is supposed to snow soon. It is the first time in ages that all of my water hoses were thawed out. Plus it needed it.

    Yep, I get all of the warm fronts. My cousin lives pretty close to you. He is in Mt. Washington, isn't that like 40 minutes or less from you?

    Not sure where Mt. Washington is, I'm right 'below' the Green River Lake.
