At that point, better to just leave the plastc bits. Mulch overtop of them to keep them out of the sun, and just don't worry about them.
Better than creating a bunch of dioxins so the soil can be pretty.

I figured I'd always be able to recognize them by their feather patterns but now I have so many black ones (no white spots or glimmers) that I'm starting to not be able to tell them apart. I figure in another year or two I'll wish I had a way to tell 3 year old hens from 1 year old. Is there a way to band them or tag them that won't hurt or cause sores/problems? For another month or two I'll still be able to tell them apart...
One idea was to put a black zip tie around one ankle. Leave it loose and snip off the excess.
