Not a good idea
« on: April 30, 2012, 12:56:48 pm »
As its dry today I decided its about time the chooks got cleaned out. I hadn't bargined for the wind though.

I ended up looking like I had just been to a wedding, covered in cofetti but it wasn't pretty rose petals it was wood shaving covered in chooks poo.  Definitely not a good look.
