My first questions to the BYC community! I have a chicken tractor on the go for three silkies of around 12 weeks old. We don't have a big backyard but we move them about on the grass and are about of move them onto a dirt spot where no grass grows. The chickens are for eggs and company, not necessarily for gardening purposes. My question is this... What do I do with the poop?! This morning I went out and saw some white froth on the grass where the pen has been moved from which I think means that the manure is composting itself (?). Do I till it in and put grass seed? I don't want a lawn covered in poo... Maybe it's best to restrict them to the garden beds where I might put plants or veggies... Also when I move the pen should I put rice hull that I use for their box bedding on the ground? So many questions!!
