    Hi i'm new here and i need some advice!!! I have 2 chickens and 2 ducks!!! They all live together and get along fine! I have a baby swimming pool in there pen and the ducks sleep in it and poop too and the chickens hang out at night and sleep on the edge and poop in it too!!! I drain the pool every 3 days and i was wondering if i should pour that mixture on the soil in my garden before i plant and mix it in????

    well fresh feces is extremely acidic so it will acidify the soil, with the amount of water you are using should help it but ??? that would be the only part that would bother me.
