Last August, Hurricane Irene left us with a lot of wet grass hay that was no longer safe to feed our horses. We've been repurposing it as garden mulch and henhouse/nest box bedding, but we still have a lot left to go through.
Today I took a couple bales and spread them around in the chicken pen. The chickens will no doubt love it while they work their chicken magic and help speed up the decomposition process. As soon as it is broken down pretty well in a month or two, we can take it out and use it in the gardens as a powerful soil amendment and then re-bed the pen with more hay.
