    Has anyone ever sold Chicken Manure? And if so, how much do you charge?
    My coop is off the ground about 3 feet, and I have a wire floor so the manure falls to the ground. I have some sand bags and was going to fill each bag about ¾ full and put a sight out front of the house $3.00 a bag? Any input on this Idea?

    Since fresh manure will "burn" plant roots, I think the only chicken poo you could sell would be poo that's been composted at least half a year. Don't know if that would be worth your time... It would take a long time to build up enough supply to bag up and sell.

    There's a commercial composted chicken manure out there now, and it's called "Cock-a-doodle-doo". You might find out what they are selling that for.
