We brought in a quantity of wood shavings today (free for the pickup at a local sawmill). The chips arrive: What is it? Oh, we’re watching.We’re watching intently.Here they come. A cautious approach. Here comes everyone.First, the investigatory pecks – Is it edible? They were underwhelmed that it was not.
Then the whole crowd sort of circled around the mound. Later, they were up on top of it. Since I have more birds this winter than last, even if they do have a big yard, I have to make sure to get enough carbon in there to neutralize their nitrogen rich poop. No poop smells, thank you! Now it smells like a hamster cage.
