I've read some interesting things of late, but a bit of background first: First time chicken owner 8 PBR, at least four roos Spacious deep-litter coop Spacious run, covered on all sides Feeding them Southern States poultry starter and scratch Anything we don't eat, we feed the birds So far, so good I intend to expand the flock next year to about 36 birds. I would move the compost bins, which are made of pallets, into their expanded run, and remove one of the sides so they could just dig in. Anybody know of any issues with chickens grubbing in the compost? Will they be selective enough not to eat rotten meat and veggies? Typically we hold on to compost in the house for several days before it gets full enough to dump. I give them table treats after meals so they get plenty of fresh stuff, but I worry slightly about the older stuff from making the meals. Comments?
