i put plenty of chicken poop in the garden last fall after harvest. after a long winter in the barn [ deep litter method] i wasnt sure what i wanted to do with this springs massive amount of manure [35 chickens] . i put the word out at work and on the local freecycle for organic fertileizer and compost. i set it up for a sat morn and by noon my barn was clean, four local gardeners were happy. im happy cuzz i never lifted a shovel and the chickens are happy they have fresh straw again, looks like a win win to me.
