First time chicken mom here. Our 6 girls are just at point-of-lay. I tried to incorporate the deep litter method in our coop, and I've decided that it's just not for me. Worked great- no foul odor or bugs- just isn't really my "thing". My problems with deep litter: -feathers are everywhere (juvenile molts) -my daughter thinks flip flops are appropriate shoes for chicken chores -I'm semi-OCD when it comes to my flock's health & wellness and I'm dying to get in there and give it a good scrub My problem now is: I'm going to completely empty the coop of all bedding & I don't know what to do with it. I'm not into gardening (I've tried, but failed miserably), so I don't think composting is for me. What else can be done with the bedding/poo mixture? My husbands farm land is 10 feet from the coop, but it hasn't been harvested yet. Can I still throw it out there? Or does it have to be bagged up and put out with the trash?
