Yeah, there’s “I can see myself in the glossy reflecting surface of the floor tiles” clean, which is for parties and when important guests are likely to be around, and then there’s “I can see the floor tiles” clean, which is good enough for most of the time.
I was looking for the cage/holding pen and then I spotted it, back right! Somehow i’m guessing that this room NEEDS to be cleaned WAY MORE often than any other room in your house, AND I doubt that THIS True & Tidy SPRAY-250 Spray Mop with Refillable Bottle is going to much of any help! Lol…
@Lynnerizer@replicacobra When I was a wee lass, growing up in the metro NYC area, my grandfather still believed he was back in the old country. Didn’t matter he had been in the USA since he was 13.
So, to go along with his minifarm (scrunched into a postage stamp sized backyard) he decided that chickens needed to be part of the deal. He converted the bed of one of his old early 1950s-something pickup truck into a rolling chicken coop. In the morning before he went to work he would back his coop truck out from the garage, park it under his grape arbor. Was great, fresh eggs, and a ultra fresh roast chicken now and again. I even got to have a pet chicken that would follow us around the yard. It was all fun and games until a neighbor spoiled it.
Grandpa didn’t take the truck out of the garage until after sunrise, but a neighbor decided he too was going to have chickens, but keep them outside all the time. A rooster crowing at 5AMish at the top of a hill facing a valley carries - loudly. Really loudly. Like people next town over heard it loudly. Then his pig got loose, but that’s another story.
And we were just a bicycle ride away from the Bronx.
@Lynnerizer so many chicken coop plans. That have not been implemented. I like some on backyardchickens.com from users with hardware cloth floor and wheels so you been move it along instead of shoveling it out. But I have a few acres to work with. Doesn’t work if you don’t have space. and haven’t gotten to it… other projects.
How come no one post chickens in the “pet” threads?
This girl showed up and roosted on the peak of my roof years ago. She was so pretty I checked with all my neighbors that no one had lost their favorite chicken but no one did. I think buff orpington?
She’s a pretty girl!
If she didn’t belong to the neighbors then where the heck did she come from?
I think we’re done with chickens for this lifetime! We’re SO VERY DONE with feeding the wildlife, our neighborhood hawks and fox can move on to another part of town. Six months ago our last hen, the sole survivor, was dinner for the last time!
@Lynnerizer idk. There are only four of us right on this bit of road and two have chickens. She was gone after a couple days.I like to think she wandered home and a raccoon didn’t grab her. But. Who knows
@kittykat9180 Cleaning cat dirt boxes can be no fun either if one has a cat that tries to dig to china though other buried stuff, misses the box because they hang their butt over the edge, or flings litter all over the place.
Chatroom. It is an unending task. As soon as you dump all of the spam, use a fire extinguisher on the flame wars, vacuum up the shitposts and whinestains, it starts over. I think that some percentage of “computer glitches” that shut down chatrooms are just tired Admins who need a break. (Don’t ask how I know this …)
