We just brought home 3 new, absolutely stunning, standard-sized hens! (I'll bore you about them in another post) The 3-nestbox-coop has wood shavings as bedding. The hens range about the garden during the day, and snooze in the coop at night. Since we're close to our neighbors, what's the best way to dispose of the coop cleanings? My fiance wants to put them in the garden. I don't like that idea, because: 1.) I don't want to look outside to see a huge area (garden) covered in tan shavings, 2.) shavings will blow all over the lawn, and 3.) the odor over time would likely compound, treating the neighbors to a melange of chickeneqsue aromas. Would it work to have an outside waste bin with a liner and a periodic trip to the dump? Other ideas? Thank you for sharing your solutions with me. I have a lot to learn yet.
