    Hi I am wondering if I can spread the poop and bedding from my coop around my yard on the grass.

    I would compost it first, it is pretty hot when fresh and will burn the grass.

    What would happen to the grass under a chicken tracker ?

    It gets eaten and scratched up. Doesn't last long at all.

    However, my roses don't seem to mind the chicken poop in between them. My hens like to spend time around the rose garden, and no issues at all.
