Hi all. I was told by my neighbour that rats are attracted to chicken poo. We have a rat problem at the moment, which we are dealing with. when I clean the coop i collect all the poo with the hay and put it into a compost bin. I feel that the rats may be attracted to it as i would like to use the poo as compost. Anyway, my neighbour said that we could burn the poo and hay as then the rats wouldn't be attracted. Is this so? also could I still use it for compost? any help on this matter would be very much appreciated. I have also posted this topic into the predators bit!
