    i have taken over a coop that wasnt cleaned for atleast 2 years by the previous owner of it and the chickens have been living in this coop for two years with built up poop and cedar shavings
    i just cleaned the coop out completely today and now have no idea what to do with all of the old waste and cedar.
    any ideas on if i can just throw it away,or if i should take it to the dump myself,or if it would be okay to put in a mulch pile or any other ideas

    We are lucky enough to have a huge garden space where I dump my summer shaving's and poo's from pen's and if I have old hay from some pens or duck's, We are allowed to burn here but We are very rural so..If you want to bag it all and haul away...What ever work's best for you.
