    Started a pile with the chick and other yard stuff. First time building compost for use. Searched and can't info on dog stuff.
    Useable in pile or not? Dogs are fenced and I get the priviliage(sp) of cleaning either way. Thanks

    ed- should this question be somewhere else?

    Most carnivore poop takes a lot longer to decompose. Im pretty sure they dont recommend you put it in the faster decomposing pile. Leaves, goat/rabbit/chicken poop, food scraps, and things like that should be in their own pile. You can *probably* compost the dog poop but it will take a lot longer and is going to sttiiiiiiink. Maybe?
