Manny up close

Yesterday I sent some time out cleaning the poultry area out. All the chicken litter was collected and mixed into the compost bins.

Fresh chicken manure is very hot and should never be used fresh around any plants as it'll burn the roots and most likely kill the plant.

Chicken litter is a great heat activator for the compost heaps.

Manny is feathering up into a handsome rooster and only needs his tail feather now. He's not big on crowing and this is great after Henry who used to crow at a anything day or night.

Manny is a Plymouth Rock.
