    A mulch pile needs to be turned and chicken poo helps the process along.

    Any suggestions on how to build a mulch pile the chickens can get to while not allowing the birds to scatter things all over?

    Mine don't spread it too far, I just hoe it back up. Seems mulch and chickens are a perfect match.

    My chickens love my compost bins, and they hardly make a mess.

    My bins are 1m x 1m. The fronts are made from slats, so I add a couple of slats as the compost heap inside gets bigger. Although my hens have no trouble flying up when they're full.
