On 10/27/19 I measured out straw to fill tub about 2.5inches thick on bottom. I placed this straw in a pillow case and soaked in water overnight. I then hung pillow case to drain for about 12 hours. I then added two cups of dried and sifted alpaca poo into pillow case and mixed around. I then pasteurized by submerging pillow case in a slow cooker filled with water. I proceeded to “cook” on low for an hour. I let pillow case drain and proceeded to slow cook again for an hour. I then drained the pillow case again and transferred the contents of pillow case into bin.
While loading in bin, I first placed a layer of shredded BRF cakes on bottom of bin. Then a layer of straw; then a layer of BRF cakes; then straw; and finally a top layer of shredded BRF cakes. The bin looks very healthy and there are currently 5-6 pins visible.
My question is whether, based on the attached photos, I should add a thin casing layer of verm on top of what I have in bin?
