"I think one of the rules for farming or permaculture is if you smell anything you are doing it wrong. If it stinks, you are doing it wrong. I mean by smell anything; if you smell pie, you are doing it right. But if it stinks you are doing it wrong and you need a different system." -Paul Wheaton
I did not watch the video because I do not have the bandwidth out here in the hinterlands. If the thread subject reflects the topic I say NO!NO!NO!!!
Back in the old days you took a chicken carcass or dead rat and threw it up on the shed roof so the chickens could NOT get to it.
Why? wry neck.
A toxin that is produced by a germ causes botulism.
This toxin is usually present in dead and rotting poultry and other carcasses. It can also be present in maggots or beetles that have fed on these carcasses. Chickens get sick when they peck at these carcasses, maggots or beetles, or drink water or eat feed contaminated by carcasses.

Are you saying that you dispose of dead animals by throwing them onto a shed roof?
Sorry, But my name is Sam and I am internet video challenged. No youtubes for me!
If *you* have watched the video, please advise me if the subject reflects the content. I am curious.
My message is clear and direct. I don't understand what an "approach" is? Perhaps a subtle nuance? or maybe PC speak? Explain to me in flip phone parlance not smartphone juju please.
And yup, that is exactly what I do. No compost piles or chunking 'em in the woods. My birds range far and wide and attack the compost pile with gusto daily. Let the carrion birds do their job. They are good at it.
