"Chickens are way better than people at composting: they have unlimited patience, pre-installed garden-tool feet, integrated nitrogen/potassium/phosphorus dispensers, and an insatiable urge to scratch. So why not put them to work?"
I scrambled to finish this instructable this evening:
...thinking I'd gotten in under the wire for the "Share your Garden" contest... but on the glorious "Publish" page, the contest link was nowhere to be seen! Was my clock wrong? No!
Apparently I can't read, because the contest clearly states that the eligible instructables must be "photo" instructables.
So, with about 20 minutes to go until the deadline for entry, I hastily assembled this non-structable, featuring a few photos excerpted from the 'ible I published a few minutes ago. I agree that this is sort of lame of me to do, and will graciously accept disqualification should it come my way. But Technically this is something I built in the garden, right?
Either way, please take a peek at the instructable if you are a fan of compost, chickens, or both... and if you are so inclined (and I somehow avoid disqualification), I'd appreciate your vote.
Many thanks, and happy composting!
