free protein for chickens - gross
« on: August 16, 2013, 10:11:27 PM »
Yall gonna love this (or not). A friend of mine ask me every now and then to give him some of the critters I kill around here. He said the reason he wants them is he plans to throw them on top of the chicken pen. Flies will get to the dead animals, lay eggs, have maggots. He said the maggots will start crawling around and fall out. Then the chickens can eat them.

hold your nose.

he's a genius.

sounds reasonable to me and he probably gets more from the carcass than if he'd just ground it up and fed it.  but...a little stinky?
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Great idea to me. Free chicken feed to.
You ever notice that prices are inflating, but wages are deflating?
