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? 

White vinegar kills mold and is an ant repellent.  
Citrus oil is a natural insect repellent and solvent.
Cinnamon oil kills mosquito larvae.
Vanilla bean repels flies, mosquitos and other insects.

This cleaner is so easy to make.  You can whip up a batch of this awesome stuff in about 5 minutes!  Give it a try!




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

Directions:
Peel the oranges and divide the peels between the two canning jars. Break the cinnamon sticks in half and add to jars.  Slit the vanilla bean and add to jars.  Pour the vinegar in each jar making sure to cover the peels.  Leave some headroom in each jar.  Put on the lids and set on counter to age.  Shake jar every couple of days.  In a week or two the mixture will start to smell fragrant which means it is ready to use.  Strain liquid into the spray bottle.  

This cleaner is great to use full-strength on roosting bars or it can be mixed with water and used on coop floors and wall. You can even use this is your very own kitchen.

Happy Cleaning! 

Thanks for reading!

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…

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
