I am very VERY new to the urban farm, or any farm thing and purchased my first bale of straw today to put as bedding in my run. Well, I got home and spread it all out after the chooks went to bed, so it was getting dark. I made a really thick layer of the stuff and barely scratched the surface of that bale! So... can I just leave the bale in the run to be spread out later? I live in the northwest and it does get wet but the run is covered. Do I need to bag up the unused stray and put it away? This is crazy.. what the heck do I do with all this straw?! Thanks in advance.
