I know we have been over this before, but I'm going to ask it again. I'm getting ready to clean out 3 coops. I will probably have between 1 and 2 cubic yards of pine shavings and chicken poop. My usual MO is to just cart it all to my veggie gardens and spread it out and till it under. But. I'm wondering if I need to figure out some way to actually compost it first this year (I usually do the big clean out in the fall but I had pneumonia and a lot of things didn't get done in September and October) since it won't have as long to sit and age.
Personally I would compost it for a year before putting it in the garden bed. There is just too much carbon right now in the pine shavings and I doubt there is an equal amount of nitrogen in the chicken poop.
