Might As Well Face It

April 22, 2014

I’m addicted to deep bedding!

My lights are on, but I’m not home
My mind is not my own.
My heart sweats, my body shakes
Another wheelbarrow is all it takes

Thanks girls, oh and the eggs are great too!

    Her methods are inscrutable
    The proof is irrefutable

    Do you have a post or series on hoop housing chickens in the winter–also on deep bedding I would suppose. I’m putting up a hoop this spring and am thinking about using for chickens this winter.

    thanks

    It is great for the winter, but cleaning it all out is such a hard job!.. c

      Yes, I really need to do a post about the strategies for clean out.

        Just as soon as the fields have grown enough, I will empty the barn of animals and begin.. But it all looks so fluffy and comfy in there – I don’t want to look underneath! Though first I throw inhandfuls of whole corn and get the pigs to turn it over, this helps immensly.. c

    We must be among the few women (or even people) in the world who do a jig over manure and its secondary stage — compost. I’m gradually getting the granddaughters indoctrinated, however. There are fewer “EWW-W-Ws!” and more “Oh boy, fertilizer!” comments when somebody on the ranch poops or they step in something.

    That’s a crazy version of that song. The Robert Palmer video drove the young me bananas. I desperately tried to date a girl who looked like one of the ladies in the video but she wasn’t having any of it. Sigh.

    It is a little disturbing the amount of time I spend looking at, harvesting and handling animal manure. Look for health of the animal. Plan for health of the soil.

    Deep bedding yes, but for me it to has to be shovelled while Tina Turner ramps it up! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10bIbch7fYg

      Exactly! What’s love got to do with it? Man that gal can sing! I was wondering if Tina’s version was little too racy for the old blog :)
