This blog post brought to you in Smell-O-Vision

What's that? You don't smell anything, you say? That's right, because we cleaned the entire run today. I believe it's called mucking. In any event, we dug down deep, threw it over the fence, put down diatomaceous earth and fresh wood shavings. The hens are happy and are taking dirt baths like crazy. We needed to do this for a while now. The earth in the run had become compacted and was not smelling very good on rainy days.

I had been thinking, that once my daughter goes to college, I'd like to get some land somewhere, and some alpacas. The amount of work yesterday's cleaning took, however, changed my mind. It felt good to do it and get it done, but we are sore today.
