I've Thought About Quitting

I have been feeling a bit sad over here at ChickinBoots these past few days.  Someone stole the following image that I created one year ago:

The person removed my ChickinBoots watermark and added their own page name to it.  The tampered image has now been shared hundreds of thousands of times.  My first reaction: angry, sad and frustrated.  I spend so much time creating my art and to have an image stolen out from under me and tampered with is heartbreaking.  I reached out to the page owner about taking it down. They eventually did but before agreeing to doing so had the audacity to ask me to prove to them that this image did in fact belong to ChickinBoots. Really?!
Because of my frustration and sadness I have felt this past week I actually contemplated shutting down ChickinBoots.  But after a few days of thinking things through I realized that quitting was not the answer.  If I quit I would let the people who do these kinds of things win.  I would also let down the people who support me…

Orange Peel Coop Cleaner

Orange Peel Coop Cleaner
To clean your coop, have you ever used the Orange Peel White Vinegar Coop Cleaner from Fresh Eggs Daily?  I love this particular cleaner because it smells better than bleach, it's all natural and it's multi-purpose!   How is it multi-purpose, you ask?

Ingredients/Supplies: 4 oranges 2 cinnamon sticks 2 vanilla beans bottle of white vinegar 2 one-pint canning jars spray bottle

That's A Lot of Chicken Poop!

Wow!  I never realized how much a chicken actually poops until we got chickens 4 years ago.  If you are planning on owning chickens in the near future, let me tell you, it's A LOT!  And for all those people who already own chickens I know you will agree with me.  Gail Damerow lays (no pun intended!) it all out there in  her book The Chicken Encyclopedia: An Illustrated Reference.

Good thing  you can put all that poop to good use by composting or manure tea!  Want more scoop on chicken poop?  Check out these articles from Lisa Steele
