    I knew chicken poo was good to put on the garden, but I didn't know it was this good! We dumped a load on last fall and tilled it in this spring. The garden is growing like I've NEVER seen it before, and we actually put it in late! Our squash and tomato plants are easily twice the size of the neighbors and he put his in on time. If your garden is a little slow, stick some chicken poo in there this fall. Amazing!

    This is kinda funny- We have a very large garden, and when I clean the coops, I use the tractor, Wheel barrel, whatever the amount of manure that I am scooping out of the coops. I dump them randomly in the garden in the fall/ winter/ early spring, and till it in, and by early summer, you can see where I had dumped the manure, by the height of the veggies and the weeds compare where I did not put any manure.

    Chicken poo is great for the garden. I use it all the time and it's free.[​IMG]

    With your title I thought it was another one of those Jesus sightings. You know how people see him on doors and crackers and clouds and stuff.

    Got to becareful though... it's very high in nitrogen so it can "burn" your garden... For best results let it mature a year... or make compost tea with it

    I put up temporary fencing in parts of the garden that aren't planted that year and turn the chickens out in that section. They eat weeds, scratch around, and fertilize. DH loves how the garden grows in those sections the next year...

    I used chicken poo mulch in my front yard garden bed.Looks nice and the flowers are doing well.Threw in a couple veggie plants too! I started planting in my old compost area.Got some cucumbers from Syria,and some chia,amaranth,and shi-something(medicinal flowers). I hate the pooing all over the yard,but the planned spreading is nice.
