    It's recommended to let the chicken poo sit for close to a month because of the high nitrogen.

    Well that's true, after a couple of waterings/rains I find it much "cleaner" walking in the garden now that I put down the use coop bedding! We are over run with deer in our area so our garden is fenced in...I get tons of tomatoes! Of course my flower beds aren't quite as full now that I have chickens but fortunately I have lots of flowers beds so the chickens spread their foraging around!

    I find that as long as I spread it fairly thin and not too close to the plants that it doesn't effect anything but the weeds! Now if I let it sit in a pile the dogs think it's a playground and go for a roll in it!

    As a profession round up is the way to go as long as you use per the specs. I had a situation where fish died in a pond around where I had sprayed. I learned A LOT during that ordeal and in the end it was a fish virus and not the spray, but found out that it is the safest thing you can use on plants that will not harm animals.

    LOL. Yeah thin is the key. In concentration it's bad news. To raise mushrooms I had to wait 6wks to get the nitrogen down. Tomatoes will eat that up.

    Have you ever used duck house bedding? I have a pile of that too and boy is it "wetter" than the chicken bedding!
