Video Chicken Live! New Building Product from Acre —April 2, 2021

This show featured Chandler from Modern Mill to discuss their Acre(TM) product. Matt is trying to source new materials as HDPE is running out and lumber prices have skyrocketed. The Acre product would be use to build the henhouse and in place of the HDPE lining, as the Acre product is 100% tree-free, free of phenol, formaldehyde and adhesives. Resists water, weather, pests, and fire. Looks like real wood, indistinguishable from the real thing. Leave unfinished, choose a factory finish, or apply oil, stain, lacquer or paint. It's also ZERO WASTE, 100% RECYCLABLE Made from upcycled rice hulls, a natural wonder of waterproof strength and durability in a zero-waste manufacturing environment. The applications are endless and Chandler was full of great info. Also Matt and Kristen take your questions. https://carolinacoops.com/ https://carolinacoops.com/radio-chicken-podcast/
