With toungue firmly in cheek I thougt I'd pick up from the Scott's thread and see if I could learn some more from you guys on this feathermeal issue. Bill, I have you firmly marked down as "not a fan". But as is often the case I don't understand why. It appeals to me beacause A. its a protein, and B. its makes a by-product useful. Now Im sure you're going to tell me that they'd grind it up and feed it back to the chickens if it weren't in my fertilizer but that can't be the source of your ire. You hate this stuff. How come?? Edify me.
