    Hi everyone, my 3 months old are shedding so much these days, I got white feather all over my backyard. It's too much work to pick them up, any ideas how I can keep a "relatively" clean looking backyard? Thank you all!

    Quote:If you have one set your lawn mower to mulch and mow over them a time or two. If your mower is only side discharge figure where you want the feathers to end up and use it as a power broom. Feathers are high in nitrogen and makes great slow release lawn food. they don't compost all that well but they will break down in a good compost pile.

    Thank you GooseDragon, that sounds like a very good idea. I'll give it a try.
