The chicken

coops were long (click photos to enlarge), twice as long as they look in the small photos. Each coop was split in half. I'm not good at judging quantity so have no idea how many were in each coop. There were two coops and then there was a barn that was also filled with chickens.

These are their winter coops. Again, no smell - but I don't remember why. I do remember the farm manager saying that the chickens feed some on the grubs, potato bugs etc that come up through the ground. In the spring? or summer? after the chickens are put outside and the winter coops are dismantled, then the earthworms appear and then the entire area is put into the gardens.

Pretty cool.
