    I jus had this guy stop and ask me if I would sell it to him.

    I probably sounded so stupid responding to the guy.

    I don't store it anywhere for you to get it I just dump it out behind the field on the edge of the woods.

    What are you using it for? To feed my worms, I grow nightcrawlers. OHHH I see.

    So I am thinking of letting him buy it. Why not if I don't want it!

    I dump mine in a pile, & when it breaks down, on the garden it goes!

    I dump mine around the yars too,so it can break down a bit before I add it to the garden beds. That is great that someone will pay you for the poop!. I see people selling rabbit,horse,and worm poo on craigs.

    Quote:X2 here. All the leaves, egg shells, saw dust, non-greasy chicken scorned kitchen scraps go into the compost pile. The manure gives nitrogen to the enzymes and bacteria that devour the brown biomass. You could do the same even if you don't have a garden, and sell the rich mulch to him instead of filling up your dumpster. I live in a desert, but my garden soil is rich, black, loam with worms by the pound. I've heard that chicken manure is second only to rabbit manure.

    Ours is on our back yard on top of our grass seed.
    Some of it is in the garden.

    Fresh stuff goes to the redworms,and future soldier fly larve.

    LOL! In the movie "A Good Year" with Russell Crowe, chicken poop was used in the vineyards. Chicken poop fertilizer must be highly desirable, because they boasted the wine was awesome.

    I use it in my garden to fill the raised beds. I use it as mulch, since it has straw and wood chips, around the yard.

    If you can sell then go for it. I would bag it up in manageable size bags and do so. Look at it this way. If you don't need it and you can get a dollar for it that's more than you'd have if you tossed it out right?

    Wishing you lots of chicken poop sales
