Cleaned all the straw out of the Ducks shed today and put some fresh in. Normally, I would also give it a good scrub with disinfectant but that wasn't possible in -2degC and the drainage holes were iced up. The chickens will also have to wait for a good clean out, I clean the litter tray and change the bedding in the nest box at least every other day anyway. Apparently, we have blizzard conditions outside so I'm very glad to have a blazing log fire and not very happy to have a 'Giant' (not really very big) spider, that came in with the wood, hiding under the bookcase. Chickens love spiders, or at least mine do, but no, I'm not getting one of them in here, they wouldn't fit under the bookcase.
