    I don't have any deciduous trees, but the pines have been dropping boatloads of needles. Whooo boy! Are the chooks happy! There's pine duff all over the place and the recent rain has washed a lot of it down the steep driveway. Chickens cluster together down there, a'kickin and a'scratchin in it.

    Every year I have about 50 bags of leaves for the town to pick up, I really hate bagging them. What can I do with them that my chickens would love? I thought about throwing a bunch in the area they hang out but then I was thinking wet poopy leaves would not smell to good. Should I try it? Will it smell bad?

    yep, the chickens love rummaging through the leaves. I have found that my goats like to pick em up as soon as they fall and eat them. no raking for me!
