One of the coops on last weekend's tour was pretty cool. They had a compost bin in the large run. The coop owner said that he was going through a tremendous amount of feed per month for his flock, but now that he composts in the run he is buying a third of what he did before. He says the eggs are stronger and more orange than before and his girls seem happier. Anyone else doing this? I was thinking about putting a small pile in the run so the chickens could turn it and expedite decomp. That compost will get added to a special "chicken" compost bin that will age before use. I have a second compost bin at the back of the yard that the chickens do not have access to because of it's akward construction.
