They sound good too. Wish I had access to some. I've tried 20L
opaque plastic drums from the vet but they don't work at all well.
Not dark enough for the chooks to feel that they are a good place to
lay. I finally got onto the lawn mower catchers after seeing some in a
friend's permaculture chook dome and have collected about 10 so far
and they are just great.

No, it made perfect sense.
