Black Hen draws flies

Post  Pappy Slip on Tue 03 Jun 2014, 6:49 am

Honey drove me to Lowes. Their plants looked surprisingly fantastic. While in the garden center I asked my honey if she cared if I purchased a bag of chicken poo. I thought she might object putting the poo in her Santa Fe. She replied that's fine as long as the lowes associates wrap it with plastic. So, I see the pallet of Black Hen poo and what seemed to be hundreds of thousands of flies. My honey said sorry dear I changed my mind......hehehe. I didn't blame her...... whew it was ripe. No poo for pappy that day.

Some of it must have gotten wet in the bag.  I have never seen flies around my bags of black hen, but a wet bag of black hen is like the smelliest, stickiest clay you ever had to deal with.  I returned my bag and got a new one.  

Smell yes, flies no.
