If only my humans were as organized...

I must confess, I am a little bit of an organization freak(freakish really).
Freakish I say because where some of my life is im'peck'ibly organized,
other areas are just a down right mess.

I got bit by the organization bug beak when I attended the Chicken Workshop at Little Pond Farm. Terry had such a great organized system for her coop and barn that I was inspired.

We put up the shelves. On the floor is a boot tray for coop shoes.  Then a shelf for feed & first aid kit.  The top shelf for calcium, scratch, hand cleaner & buckets to bring the feed out to the coop with.  This makes me so happy! The wood was kicking around our barn & the containers were either repurposed or bought on sale.


I am a label queen.  I love to make labels.  My man just shakes his head.  He knows when I am doing something like this there will be labels.  I use either paper or card stock to print out my labels.  I have a huge roll of clear contact paper that I got free from a local company.  They give tons of stuff away that I use for my cub scouts and kids school projects.  Because it is a commercial grade contact paper, it is super durable, sticks to and protects anything.  That is why I can print up my labels for pennies and they will look good for years.
 



I also put together our chicken first aid kit, again thanks to Terry Golson and the great info on her web site.  Now if we have a chicken emergency we have everything together.  For a full list you can go to Terry's blog. She has the list and the uses for the items.

Even Foghorn Leghorn stood up an took notice of my fabulous organizational masterpiece(or she was just looking at me wondering why I allowed PC to name her Foghorn Leghorn) hmmm not sure...
I will have to get back to you on that one.

Cake Chick, you wanna come help me get organized after I get moved? I could use the help for sure.

LOL! Foghorn Leghorn? Really? Here's the thing my sister told my niece when my niece was pregnant and trying to think of a name for her baby. Go to a party and when you introduce yourself, use that name and see how people react! For example, you are at a party and someone says, "Hi I'm John what's your name?" You say, "Hi I'm Foghorn Leghorn" and see how John reacts! LOL!

ps - I didn't know there was a difference in meat bird feed and egg laying bird feed. See, your labels taught me something!

I love to organize. My kids make fun of me for alphabetizing my canned goods, but it makes me happy. Your place looks great.

Cindy Bee... he is rethinking the whole Foghorn Leghorn name. I asked him how he would like that name and to be called for attendance on the first day of school. I will keep you posted. As for the rest of you...I am happy to hear you are all crazy, err I mean organizers just like me ;p
