Hi all! I'm new! I have a question that I hope someone can help me with. I've been in chicken houses, loved the little chicks and helped my grandparent's with their chicken houses when I was small. I remember the ammonia smell and how sometimes some of the chickens died and were taken out and disposed of. But, I am dealing with a problem that I would like your professional opinions on. I know that sometimes people compost the dead poultry and I have read about the regulations that are required to do this and then how they dispose of the compost on pastures. What I'd like to know is "if" the composting process is done correctly, what is left when they scatter the compost? Would there be anything left of the dead birds or would there be a smell of dead animals? TIA!
