    I have a listing on localharvest.com and apparently I clicked that i have chicken manure available. Which I do, but I didn't think anyone would want it. So, someone does.

    I figure I have about 3 wheelbarrows full of the stuff, mixed with pine shavings and hay. A local garden wants it, and I don't have any idea how much to charge for it.

    Any suggestions? I know it's not much to begin with, but we will be making more all winter long.

    Composted chicken manure is pretty cheap at Lowe's & Home Depot. I'd charge $5 and thank them for taking it! [​IMG]
