As a blogger who writes about composting, I have set up a Google news alert to notify me of any compost related news. Yes, it's sad but it's true. In the news today is an interesting article about zombie chickens.
It reports that when egg laying hens reach an age where they aren't as productive, the hens are being euthanized and then composted. Yikes! But the even scarier part is that the euthanizing process doesn't seem to be 100% effective because some "zombie chickens" rise up out of the compost piles.
Maybe it's time for me to get rid of the compost news alerts, but I definitely plan to keep a close watch on my compost bin.
