"Cool!  Your greenhouse sounds kind-of steam punk :)  I know that Friendly Aquaponics has some info. about solar heating. The trouble with black piping is that it'll radiate heat away at night.  I've got a couple of posts…"

Anaerobic digester ibc's

I love your videos and information. I'm very interested in your methane digester and aquaponics setup. I have a greenhouse and ibc totes.

GRAVITY FED EGG RETRIEVAL SYSTEM

In my coup I use Six 5-Gallon buckets and 6 metal paint trays (lined with outdoor carpet). The buckets are set at an angle, so that gravity rolls the egg out from under the hens. It falls gently through a hole in the back of the bucket onto the paint tray, then rolls forward away from the hole. I access the paint trays from the outside of the coup. The Chickens never has the chance to eat their own eggs, or attack you when you go to retrieve the eggs. It has worked near perfect for about 1.5…See More
