Wanting to share another episode in our experiments with having our 25 chickens generate mountains of compost for us.  Right now we're trying to figure out how to have the compost move the least distance while still generating crops as it ages, so we're experimenting with a number of designs with rings of various heights and shapes to make very nutrient dense raised beds in the chicken yard.   Still very much a learning process...  I'd love to hear thoughts from folks!

Thanks for your great videos.  This is yet another good idea, and one of theses days I'll end up trying it in my coop as well.
Putting the boards down, and then moving them after a while so the birds can get the bugs......simple and smart.  Thanks for that one too.

Really appreciate the mellow/relaxed tone, and simple ways.  Born to be a teacher, I'd guess.
Much respect for the back breaking labor you do too.

Keep'em coming.

 
And then we all jump out and yell "surprise! we got you this tiny ad!"
