update to the little chick interruptions, I now have about 22 little poop machines. They are totally assorted colours and mixed breeds, I have had some extra success, by being patient mostly, and letting them hatch out in their own good time with few exception.
I have got a good few flower pots today and put them around where I can work on them, I think to put a good amount of the dried brooder poop into the bottom of each pot. Cherry tomatoes I am picking up for free from a neighbor are going into the pots, the plants are in fruit and too big to sell apparently and in various stages of giving up on life I guess. So good test subjects at the right price.
The brooder is an old fridge laid on it's side with a hole for the chickens to get in and out. There is nothing on the floor, which is the side of the fridge originally, it's just the plastic wall. They poop as they please and I can either sometimes hose the fridge out, or if i forget then it's all very dry and loose stuff. So it's pretty much outright pure poop and a good dose can be put into each pot.
So I guess it's tomatoes first, and also one or maybe a few peppers. I ate one of the peppers today, to the awe of spectators it was rather hot, but I handled it well I think
