"Serendipity denotes the property of making fortunate discoveries while looking for something unrelated, or the occurrence of such a discovery during such a search."

Last night while driving home from our dance class, Husband and I were talking about cleaning and disinfecting the chicken coop prior to introducing the new chicks (should they hatch! I'm being positive!) We were wondering what to use as a disinfectant, as neither of us really know what to use to disinfect an entire hen house. We were considering the use of Detol, it that would need a lot of cleaner and I am hesitant to put the animals around a cleaner.

Later in the evening during my blog reading I clicked a link on a comment link left on another blog and low and behold(!) there were instructions to disinfect chicken coops the natural way - with vinegar! Now that is serendipity!

Hi RG, I hope they hatch too. If not, we'll try again later in the spring... perhaps when the snow is finally gone... even if it mean July (ha ha)
