My chickens have free ranged over our acre for the last seven years. I've loved having them free range, but was very tired of chicken poo on the porch. That stuff is sooo slick when it's wet, I was worried about someone slipping and falling off the porch. So, this summer we enclosed a nice large run, got them all settled in. I went out today with a heaping scrap bowl, as I turn to close the door to the run behind me, I SLIP on wet chicken/duck poo right inside the door and down I go!!!! I landed part in the waterer, of course the treats went flying everywhere, and mud/chicken/duck poo all over my entire right side. GROSS The girls looked at me kinda funny---what's she doing?---but proceeded to dig into the scraps as I struggled to my feet. Of course, I was also wearing my cute new (from goodwill) coldwater creek jeans---I had been so happy I could finally wear something from them after losing so much weight---and they're covered in muck. I slogged into the house and was rinsing everything off in the shower when dh comes is. I told him what happened and completely deadpan he said "Good thing they don't poop on the porch, isn't it? ARGH! Please tell me someone else has done something similar!!!!
