    I have found a new bedding. That seems to working very good for the chickens and turkeys (not so much the ducks yet but we well see...) I have six pictures that i well post. I am only starting with two right now though.


    I want to know if any one can guess what it is ( i know what it is [​IMG] )

    Best part is it's free [​IMG] Becuase they would have to pay to take it to the dump. It is very light weight. And seems like it would compost quickly [​IMG]
