I recently started experimenting with "deep scratching". I had a casing that was overlayed quite a bit and I was sure that allowing them to fruit would have resulted in some of the surface area being un-pinnable due to the overlay. Stirring the casing layer up with a fork that was boiled in water for 15 minutes and cooled worked great at solving this problem. I also noticed that the casing layer re-colonized very evenly. I used to have a problem with uneven casing layers and pinning, so now I always do the deep scratching technique to get a good even fully colonized casing layer. At about 35-50% colonization, I scrape and stir the casing layer up, making sure to spread the colonized part through the non-colonized parts, even casing layers always ensue. Anyone else ever have any experiences with this?
My hamster has had rather identical experience, actually. Although he flame sterilized his fork.

He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest--a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
I think that a good deep scratch, stirring all of the colonized and non-colonized casing layer together down to the substrate, then covering the entire layer in a 1/8th inch of more casing material is a great way to ensure even pinsets
