Loads of people ask about it. Some do it and fail, others are quite successful. Let hear your story and see some pictures. I am interested to hear about what has and has not worked for everyone else. I'll start: I am currently using a composting bin in our run that works wonders. Every single piece of compostable kitchen scrap goes into the bin, all of our garden waste, grass clippings, chicken poo and whatever else we can compost goes in it. The girls hop into the bin and scratch around, mixing up the compost and find themselves some tasty treats while fertilizing the heap. I have found it very nice to have close to the coop for cleaning time. We turn the pile with a fork about once a week to mix it up. I made our composting bin out of pallet wood. The front is made so that slats can be added or removed as needed from the very top or to the very bottom. When we need to clean it out, I simply pull out all of the slats and rake it out. I made three of these at the end of last winter to house (unsuccessfully) potatoes. The plan is to rotate the compost pile every 4 months or so, so that we have three stages of compost. The third stage being ready for use as needed. The girls hop in, using that log as a step. All the compost stays in the bin, with the exception of the little bit they kick up. It does not smell, and we don't have a problem with flies in the pile. There are however, loads of grubs that the chooks nibble on all day. PVC is there to help get air to the bottom of the heap for faster break down. I keep a bit of plastic roof over it to keep it dryish. We have found, that an open top and all the rain we have had this year, don't mix well. We monitor the moisture, and add water as needed.
