I am using the deep litter system in my 8x4ish covered chicken run. It has greatly reduced the need to clean out the run, reduced the odor, reduced flies, good to keep my neighbors happy, and gives the girls something to scratch around all day. During grass cutting season I used dried grass clippings, but now I am using fall leaves. Currently I have maple leaves but now those are gone. I don't want to use live oak leaves because they take forever and a day to decompose and don't want to get acorns either. So, can I use wild cherry, "popcorn tree", Bradford pear, pecan leaves? Also, once composted, will any of these leaves be an growth inhibitor to my garden plants?
