    My son who is less than two years old is already learning how to recycle chicken manure and wood savings into fertilizer. We spread it on our food plots at our hunting club and use it in the garden. I could not resist sharing his shovel skills with you guys. He is a future chicken man for sure.

    Wow a kid that shovels poop-do you want to sell him? How about renting him out?

    That's a SWEET picture, and I love seeing parents involve their kids in the not-so-fun parts of life as well as the good stuff! [​IMG]

    The cool part is he thinks it fun...probably not for long so I will enjoy it while I can. He mostly likes riding the 4 wheeler on the way to dump the manure.

    $3 above minimum wage, that's as high as I'll go before he turns six, goes to school, and someone explains "exploitation".

    While the page was loading (I have slow speed internet) I was thinking it was a serious question. I was going to suggest a cold one but now that I saw the picture all I can say is enjoy the help while you can. They turn into teens and then it's all over!
