    It seems that just about everyone composts their chicken poo - and from what most folks describe, it's done somewhere separate from the coop/run. In the little garden coops (cute as can be by the way!!!!) I understand. But I'm planning more of a fenced yard with a netting cover. Does anyone compost IN the run? Is there a reason not to? I was thinking that I could put up a pallet composter and let the chooks do the turning.

    Good idea? Bad idea?

    My guess is that whatever was to be composted would be spread all over the run.
