If you don't have a compost pile, what can you do with the chicken poop you clean out from the coop?
Some folks bag it and toss it out in the garbage if amount is minimal. Composting remains the best use.
Start a compost pile unless you live in a city that bans open compost. If that is the case, get a bin.
Bag it and throw it in the dumpster, or if you are scooping bedding too, you can burn it.
Hi there! And
If there is no other option, bagging is the best choice
Dumpster is what we do with cat feces.
However I garden and consider it a waste to throw good chicken manure away.
If your not your not composting then find someone who is, then in the warmer months they'll throw you some produce.
If your in the city look up to see if there's any mini farm/co op gardens in your area, betcha they won't turn down that free source of N, P, and K.
Can't understand why anyone wouldn't compost....
Just put it in a pile in a corner near your coop. Come back 3-6 months later and add it to your garden/houseplants/edging/whatever.
PS If it's intimidation, I'll tell you a big secret: ignore the rules; humus happens. Ever walked through the forest? No one is monitoring how much brown there is and how much green and nothing's more fertile that the decomposition that simply happens if you give it enough time.
It is illegal some places.
Apparently it is in the city of St. Louis.
In my classes at the community college inside city limits, I advise to compost. I got a letter from the city thanking me for teaching the poultry classes but told me to inform my students that it was illegal to have an open compost pile in city limits.
No kidding! In Los Angeles they distribute composting container at cost and practically beg people to compost so that all that valuable vegetative waste doesn't go into landfill.
So, OK! No your local ordinances.
