Are you going to compost all the "biological waste" and rice husks?
There will be a lot of it!
`pip poop goes onto a double baffled septic for now. I am contemplating a poop pump and sprayer.
The rice husks are very slow to decompose but get mixes in with our sand soil, Chicken and Caribau poop goes on tthe veggie garden. Goat poop fertizes where it falls. 1 hectare is about 100000 sq feet. We have less than 4000sq feet of buildings including coop runs.
maybe you can reuse some of that roofing on an outbuilding
put the coolseal to it & get some more use out of it
i'm not a fan of leaking house roofs so i can understand wanting to replace it asap
The house roof will get re-purposed - even the pieces full of holes work well for wind breaks and drying copra. The good bits will go to the garage roof.
I try and use thatch on animal shelters because of its durability and insulative qualities. For the human houses its not so much fun as it drops little pieces on you all day.
It will be really interesting to see how many of the 30 developing eggs hatch, and if the hens have "adapted their egg" to the local environment.
This is almost as exciting as hatching the US-laid ones
These 30 are from last trip
we do pretty well with what we now call local eggs -hatch rate at 70-80%
my problem is that they, like everyone elses chickens are shut down with a molt. I had 100 eggs lost to Typhoon Yolanda and since then the girls have been on strike. We have 20 pullets at 24 weeks that I am expecting to kick in any day well atleast the RIR and Barred Rocks. The Orps and JG will be January.
I feel your pain!
Still waiting for the new legbars to lay. Maybe they are younger than I thought they were. The previous lot laid at 22 weeks.
winter soltice is just 2 weeks away. hopefully the turn in daylight hours makes a difference.
it baffles me how such a few minutes can make such a difference
OZ your telling me that your not going to dry your copra on one side of the street like the locals do
