Shoveling Chicken POOP

Today was a little warmer than yesterday so I said to myself, hey you should clean out the chicken coop. For any ones information you should never say this to yourself! I'll just tell you quickly that it stinks, there are really no words to describe it that are nice. It is on the nauseating, ammonia-ish smell. You definitely have to be there to know it! It took 3 loads of Wheelbarrows to get that all gone. yikes! I think though that after all is said and done (by me,,both) it is nice. All fresh and new and smelling like straw. I think that the hens + one duck (buzz) are happy about the new environment. They will of course love breaking in the new stuff.

I got the large star quilt all loaded up and I have quilted one line. I decided to try feathers. What was I thinking?!!? I am now trapped into the feather all-over pattern so i will go for it. I had thought though that it is going on my bed and i would like something a little nicer than a meander pattern. OK. Whatever, I guess i got my way. yay for me.....

Can't say I envy you with the chicken poop experience!

So, I was thinking about my youngest girls birthday today, thinking she would love some of your pocket people, so now I'm wondering would you be interested in doing a trade? If you wanted you could come see my stuff in person first if your even interested at all. If so let me know, my daughter's birthday is april 22nd.
My things will be at the mutton hollow country barn, and I'm not sure about the preview night.
Have a great day!
Here's my email if that's easier

Do you wear a mask or worry about any diseases when cleaning up the poop? We just got 6 egg layers 2 weeks ago, and I am figuring out the best way to take care of the poop situation. Do you use a disenfectant?
