    Is there any thing to do with old feed bags? I know they are great for kindling fires. But does anybody have any ideas? Dumb question. LOL

    Do you have the paper or plastic bags? Mine are plastic. I use them to put trash in. Many things will poke a hole in a plastic garbage bag so I put those things in a plastic feed bag before I put them in that thin plastic garbage bag to throw away.

    You can make a reusable shopping bag with them, maybe as Christmas gifts. How many do you need for your own use? There are instructions somewhere on this forum or do an internet search.

    I use most I mine to cover the insulation in the coops so no one pecks at it. Otherwise I've made a couple totes for some of my kids toys and made stockings to decorate the run for Christmas (yes, my girls get Xmas decorations!)

    Cool SunkenRoadFarms! And i have paper bags Ridgerunner, in the past i have made a few totes, but since they are paper they easily fall apart.
