I know this may seem like a stupid question, but I have lots of friends/neighbors telling me I'm lucky to have chicken poo to use as fertilizer. But I've also been told that I need to compost it or process it first because it can be too strong for the garden "as is". We don't compost, so wondered how to prepare it to use as a fertilizer. Usually when I clean out the coop it is mixed with some pine shavings, and I collect it in a covered plastic bucket. Thanks for any suggestions.
