Posted this in another thread, but these things tend to get buried....... Curious if anyone has tried miscanthus as poultry litter in either their coops or runs? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miscanthus_giganteus Scroll down to the part about using it for bedding / litter. There was a lot of ethanol research started on it in the US a few years back, but that appears to have been put on the back burner. Latest I've heard was some of those test plots were being considered for use as sources of litter for the large commercial broiler and turkey barns. I'm thinking of planting some to use as summer shade, cover and windbreak, but also to harvest and chop up as litter. Before the fox got em all, my daughter's birds loved to hang out under some tall clumps of ornamental grass that were planted in the corner of the yard. Miscanthus would be similar.
