Are those unionized chickens? OSHA might have something to say about this ;p

Will be sending your pic to my daughter to show her chickens. Great. What are your bins made from? Have any other pics to share? Beautiful compost, chicks and corn.

Thanks, everybody! The bins are the roll-up kind you can get online or at hardware stores. I got mine on Amazon:

I have four of them and rotate among different levels of doneness. They've worked great for me.

Here's a shot of the whole veggie patch. Still clearing out bermuda and planting in the empty spaces.

Lots of work but worth every minute!

Rats do a much better job of aerating.
