    I have chickens and I have a garden. I frequently feed my hens table scraps. Is there any reason I can't have my mulch pile in the part of my yard reserved for chickens? They can dig through it. Eat what they want. Ignore the rest?

    Mine is that way. The only problem is that they scratch a lot. Unless you have it contained, you might not get much compost out of it when they are through. It is scattered everywhere.
