Hello, I am looking for tips and tricks on the best way to compost my chicken manure and bedding. When I clean out the coop there seems to be a high bedding to poop ratio (too much bedding), so the mixture doesn't compost. I have 9 chickens in a 4x8 coop and clean the coop out each week. Am I cleaning it too often? If so what cleaning schedule do you recommend? Any tips/tricks on how to separate the manure from the bedding? Which bedding is best if you are going to compost? I've tried both straw and pine shavings. Neither seem to get cooking, and I simply do not have enough kitchen waste to compensate for the high amount of bedding (carbon). Also, I have added the bedding-manure mixture directly to the garden before as a nitrogen rich mulch. I've read that this could be bad for the garden, but has anyone's garden actually suffered from this?
