    Evening all! Ok, so I capitulated and let everyone out cause I was getting "the look". They were happy to be out. I did go get them some greens and everyone got some kale when I got home. Another 15 eggs again today. We did get quite a bit of meltage today. I am hoping we get more tomorrow.

    Jberguson---my rir have been the best layers so far. I do have barred rocks and golden laced wyandottes as well but my rir have been laying machines. No problems with any kind of weather either and they are excellent foragers.

    RIR's are really good layers. Mine lay well but my white leghorns can outlay any of my chickens hands down.

    I'm heading out now to lock up all 9 coops. I'll tell the Runners what you said [​IMG] and Thanks! I love them to bits [​IMG]

    My coops are really nasty - the birds are tracking in the mud. What a mess! Going out tomorrow after work to buy as many pine shavings as I can and hopefully can get all the coops spring clean this weekend. Already bought new filters for my respirator/gas mask. :p :p

    I'm still 2 months off from my once a year coop cleanings. I am due to top off the shavings with some fresh. Gotta love deep litter.

    I do the same, but it's outpacing me this year with the mud. Have topped off the shavings at least every weekend and they are gross too quickly. Ick. I am planning on doing my twice yearly cleaning a bit early this year.

    The terrorists coop (aka rir) after the last snowfall. Of course I was to blame for the evil white stuff. Yes, the divas coop is parked behind. Yes, we had to shovel out the run and a path all around both coops. Who needs a gym?
