With a title like that, I think your writing directly to me!:thumb:Thanks. I actually have two of those coops, each one in a separate pasture. When I run cattle through, the birds follow behind and scratch apart the cow patties so they can eat the undigested seed and any maggots that have formed. (Yum!) That way the cow patties don't smother the grass and the birds are essentially a little army that spreads the manure for me.
I'm thinking about writing a book: Farming for Lazy Bastards
