Got scooped by my better half on this story over on the Washington Post about converting chicken poop into energy (really!) and lots of it.
Evidently, it's a process called pyrolysis that super-heats the poop, converting it into three products: oil (for heating), slow-release fertilizer and a gas to power the pyrolysis machine itself, or so the researchers hope.
Head on over to her blog, Left Coast Mom, to read the rest and see a bonus chicken portrait from our own backyard (no poop harmed in the taking of the photo).
NOTE: the clever title for this post is blatantly stolen from her post. She's a much better writer than I'll ever dream of being, and she actually makes money from her craft!
