So, here's the scenario... I've been using the dried leaves from our giant sweet gum for the flooring of our small covered run. It's worked really well. I've added a wheelbarrow full every week and my 4 girls like to scratch and scatter the pile of leaves. Then over the week they quickly pulverized the leaves and poop into compost. It hasn't smelled at all. HOWEVER, I've finally run out of leaves...plus as they've grown, so has their poop and they need more leaves. So, finally, here's my question. I do have some dried leaves from a laurel, a Camelia and a Rhodadendron. Anyone use these in a run? Anyone know if the leaves would be toxic (a bit off topic perhaps)? Anyway, if you know, please let me know. I'm probably going to have to go get some sand otherwise. I was hoping to take the free route until the leaves start falling again Thanks.
