Can I do it? The chicks are outside, but my brooders sit in our shop still filled with lots of poop and 1/2 broken down pine pellets. Can I dump all of that into my compost pile?

The packaging says that they're ready for composting, and that's what we do with the pellets we use in the horse stalls - they go into the manure pile, which is waiting to break down a bit before being spread. But, as people have been saying, they absorb a lot of moisture. They break down a lot easier with the moisture, too, so if you let them soak in water or dump some water into the compost heap, they'll be falling apart.
