Money Saving Prepper Tip

For those who are preppers and have chickens I have a simple low cost tip that we use on the farm. We use paper shred for the nests.

Simple yet serves its purpose quite well. The shred is free from a local business and it composts quite well.

Another extremely important thing to note about the shred is that it has no mites on it. If you use straw or hay bedding you may have to purchase dusting powder for your flock. Since we switched to shred we have noted almost no mites! Amazingly simple, but prepping should not be a chore but a lifestyle towards a goal of living on less but with far more skills.

Thank God we've never had a problem with mites, but I LOVE that idea! We shred our mail here at home and we always end up just burning the shreds. Using them in next boxes is a great idea! Thanks!
