NO!  Please do it indoors, you'll have the Police knocking at your door and arresting you for indecency!

I'll try that again!

I keep an old-fashioned potty in my barn/garage so I pop inthere for a pee & decant that into a watering can for sprinkling; that way the neighbours have no ideas what I am up to.......sadly they would not be amused by it.......  whistle

sorry about the double posting........there are devil  devil  devil in my laptop today......I promise I didn't press twice........it just happened & it would not even allow me to edit them to explain.....the edit button wasn't there. This happened to me once before & TA deleted one of my posts. It doesn't happen to me elsewhere, only on this forum. It also sometimes makes my font go really tiny.

I'm now scared to press the button to post this.......here goes........runaway ........!!

they do say that male peee is the best...lol...probably dates from the days when gardeners were all male and they do come with an inbuilt sprinkler device ....i just get the boys to go down and water the compost heap , in a one toilet house its the only way to get a soak in the bath and i made sure its in a spot where only the cows can see them

My egg shells are eaten by the dogs (very good for them) and this means when it comes out the other end its processed already and still gets used in the wormery.

Deviating slightly (i'm good at that)  I was always told:

Male Pee good for compost heap;

Female Pee best for keeping foxes away from the chicken run.

 

On the subject of chickens I don't compost my shells.   I have a dish in the bottom of the oven which I throw them into, once full and baked, I pestle and mortar them before feeding them back to the chickens.  Initially I didn't bother as chickens are free range and get plenty of access to natural grit, then I was told the advantage of feeding shells back to them was the calcium content.
