Important discussion today with Chantelle ( an artist friend who, along with husband and many dogs and cats (yes they do read!) also let themselves read John Seymour's Self-Sufficiency. They farm rabbits... and despite the ease and fecundity have persauded me I never want rabbits as I have no desire to man stalag-luft's escapist detetection units. And their chooks - and I am interested in chickens - I have kept them before - have gone egg-cannibal) on how old sheep-shit has to be before it is no longer sticky.
These are very important questions for someone who has looked at a big sheep paddock as a possible home.
