Compost in my run

I just ordered my chicks, which are due to arrive in June. I'll start building my coop and run this week, knowing full well that it may be a couple of months until my girls can use it. My question is this: can I dump the current contents of my compost bin in the run and let it stay there so my chickens simply add to it?

i do...

i add to it every couple of weeks, then when it starts building up too much i shovel some out, put it back on one side of the pile to regen, and add some more "fresh" stuff from the other side.

the chickens friggin' love it when i put the new stuff in.
