    So as the title states. My coop is set up for deep litter method and I've just recently found out that chicken manure is hot, so not sure how to cool things down for use in my vegetable/flower gardens.
    I'm new to the whole back yard chickens and living it so far.

    Hello! I've heard it needs to be aged. And then I've also heard you can make a "poop tea" (you know, just dissolve it in some water in a bucket) and just water the flowers with that.

    I think you have to age it for a year.
