Hi any thoughts about putting a compost heap inside the chicken run divided off in one corner?
Alright great to have you joining the BYC flock
I keep my compost pile all by itself .
The compost needs to be fermented a bit before chickens use it too much. You will also be attracting a lot of mice and rats if you keep it in the run or too close to the coop.

Hello and Welcome To BYC!
We started composting in our run this year, and are absolutely thrilled with the results.
Welcome to BYC! We're glad to have you.
Welcome to BYC. Understand that chickens love to work compost piles, but they will spread the compost all over the pen.
That's for sure! We use a deep litter method, so composting in the run works for us.
