    Funny Story...

    I have been dreading cleaning out my coop for weeks now. Spring has long since sprung in sunny Florida is almost over and summer is well on its way. The smell of the coop is lingering longer in the sun... you get the idea...

    We had a nice day today so I thought I'd bite the bullet and do my first annual serious coop cleaning. I got out there with the wheel barrow, shovel, and rake and promptly decided that this was not for me.

    I went straight to the computer and posted an ad on craigs list for free chicken poop & weekly grass clippings... a whole years worth! I said that if they didn't come get it this week that it was going in my composter (the one I have been procrastinatingabout and haven't built yet).

    Within an hour I have had three responses to come tomorrow!

    God Bless America.
