She's invariably the last to get up in the morning, but usually moves when I open the coop's side door. Not today though; today she stayed put on her perch. As she was sitting right in front of the door, this made things a bit tricky. For one thing, my view was restricted. Was there poo on the floor beyond her which I couldn't see or was that area clear? Reaching round her to collect what I could see wasn't easy either.
It was only when I was back in the kitchen, enjoying a well deserved cup of tea, that the solution presented itself to me. Just pick the damned chicken up, put her outside - then pick the poo!
Well I'm not at my best first thing in the morning!
