" Radioactive Ooze Found in Paducah

By Joby Warrick and Joe Stephens Washington Post Staff Writers Sunday, August 29, 1999; Page A1

PADUCAH, Ky.–The discovery of radioactive black ooze seeping from the ground a quarter-mile from the U.S.-owned uranium plant here has buttressed workers' claims of unlicensed dumping of hazardous waste outside the factory fence.

The chance finding of the ooze by plant workers last month led to the uncovering of a burial ground for radioactive debris just north of the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant, federal officials confirmed last week. The waste, barely hidden beneath a thin layer of soil in a grassy lot, came to light when workers noticed a tar-like substance pooling in the tracks made by their truck...."

@AW: why is one of my hens eating its eggs? Lack of calcium? Is that why they sell the oyster shell crumbs for chickens at the farm store?

I did ask my Amish friend and some of hers eat their own eggs also. She thinks oyster shells should fix the problem but isn't sure.

I do give them laying pellets and some small gravel grit. They spend the day outside but in a pen where they fluff and scratch around in the dirt.

Typically hens eat their own shells not so much from diet, but from too many hens per nesting box or not enough soft material such as hay in the nest. An alternative is to gather the eggs more frequently. Also make sure they have plenty of available water. If a shell is just slightly cracked, the hen will go for the liquid nourishment.

Hens fluff and scratch in and throw dirt up on themselves and then shake it off to remove mites and such.

@Anne.. I don't buy the oyster shells or the gravel grit for my 21 adult chickens, but I do feed the 20% protein layer pellets and scratch grains. The scratch contains 5 different grains including cracked corn and millet which I don't put in a feeder but just throw it on the ground in their pen for them to scratch in. I also allow them to free range about 3 hours each day in the evenings after I have gotten most of my eggs for the day. I also pull up weeds around my house, wood pile, trees etc and throw those in the pen as well as aged lettuce and cabbage. Occasionally, I will mix up some of the cheap off brand macaroni and cheese and throw that to them (after I have had my spoonful lol).

I have 14 chicks about 2 months old that should be laying by fall. Since egg production slows down in cold weather, the pullets from these 14 will compliment my flock and keep production levels consistent.

Some rain. I'm sure by the end of Summer we will wish it had been much more rain. Going to have to mow tomorrow. Sounds like fun I know.
Have a good day all!

It's nice to have the rain; the grass just grows quickly. I hope, the humidity lets up a bit. No shade trees around here. When I was child we had a forest full of pines surrounding us. When the wind would blow, the fragrance was rejuvenating. Remember that first taste of unripe persimmon, yuck. Lol. Birds happily singing. First day of summer begins Friday. The 4th is right around the corner.
Good day to All the Fine Folks.
Hope all the gardens are doing well. My basil is doing extremely well.
@ Roaming, I know what you mean about the grass. It's been an every week job for me. Hope your Loved Ones are feeling better;)

I got my grass mowed yesterday but finished up the last little bit in the rain. For the birders... I saw some quail this morning out pecking around in the freshly mowed grass.

Here's an update on my vinegar/salt/dawn weed killer vs. Roundup. Vinegar solution worked--but is now greening up and flourishing. Roundup worked--and vegetation is still brown with no new growth.
@AW-- thanks for the info. I'll keep it in mind and next time I'm in the farm store I'll get some scratch. A pan with some laying pellets was soaked from the rain yesterday and when I knocked it clean for fresh pellets the hens went berserk trying to make pigs of themselves. Too bad it didn't work.....because I love ham!

Lexington news said there was several inches of rain in just 5 minutes in Lala's area. I hope all is okay.
