Winter and colder weather is nearing my door step. In my effort to winterize widows and doors, much to my dismay. I discovered that my 5 year old calk job using premium quality 30 year calk on windows and doors has failed!
So I have spent much of this week gouging out old calk readying windows and doors for a new DIY calking, to seal out winters cold ‘again’. That 30 year calk didn’t workout all that well. Grinning … So this time I’m using a satisfaction guaranteed 50 year calk. Hehehe like I will know what I did with my receipt in 5 years much less in 50 years!
Chicken Coop Poop With winter approaching I ran my chickens out of their hen house. During winters cold weather the birds will spend much more time inside their coop. With this in mind I removed all old litter and nest box grass hay. Scrapped and removed all that old chicken poop from the coop!
I mixed up 5 gallons of ‘strong’ bleach and blue Dawn dish soap water. Using a hand sprayer I washed both the inside and outside of my chicken coop from ceiling to floor/ground.
While I was at it I also sterilized their feeders and water containers.
After everything was dry I put down about 4 inches of blue stem grass hay and filled the nest boxes with fresh grass hay as well.
