So, the order form says: “We don’t store credit card information. Your card details will be destroyed after use.”
But what does that mean?
Well, I’ve just stepped outside my front door and taken a photo of exactly what that means for you.
Here’s what we do:
1. Shred your card details after we have processed payment
2. Use the shredded paper to line the nest for our hens
3. Transfer the used paper to the compost bin when the hens are finished with it
4. Use the compost to try and improve the appalling quality of the soil on our property
So, on behalf of our little flock we’d like to thank you very much for your help.

Looking forward to hearing your squeal,
Every year at the end of June we get to go to ConQEST and we always have a ball.
This year we ran two workshops – a head dissection and a piglet dissection. One of the workshoppers, a lab tech from Emerald, took some great photos of the piglet dissection and has been kind enough to let me share them here.
Step 1 – peg out the beastie on a tray using rubber bands around each foot. Heather from Southern Biological showed me how to do this.
Step 2 – make a mid-sagittal incision in the skin
Step 3 – separate the skin from the muscle using a scalpel
Step 4 – locate the diaphragm and identify the organs of the thoracic cavity
Step 5 – identify the organs of the abdominal cavity
So, there you have it. A good time was had by all and then we went to lunch – which is always fabulous at ConQEST. See you there ‘in the flesh’ next year.
