I know this isn't really coop design. BUt I couldn't decide where to put it. I know that chicken manure is good for plants. I know that straight manure will burn plants. I have two bantams right now. They like to hang out on my porch and potted plants. They poo on the porch. I spray off the porch and the poo water flows into my roses. Also I have no doubt that they have dropped presents in the potted plants. Should I put hay or something around the plants so the poo isn't directly on the dirt beneath them? It isn't a lot of poo...So will this little bit kill the plants? Also, I am sure some of the poo goes between the cracks under the porch. Will this be a problem? I am working on a solution to keep them off the porch but if they run around my yard they will always be pooping under some plant or another.
