Okay, we use straw for bedding. We've been putting the old straw spread out in the run area when we clean the coop and nest box out to help add more warmth for the winter. Well now there is enough straw, I don't want to add any more. As for the poo, I've heard two good ideas... put it in the garden as fertilizer, and till it into the ground in the run. Well, with what I've done, I can't till it into the ground right now. And now gardens in the winter. So what should I do with the poo and straw during the winter? Winter has only just started in our area... 5th day of December... 5th day of winter. So it's still early. I need any and all advice. We do have a fire pit... but won't be doing any fires until spring or summer has set in. And that would be a lot of straw built up over winter. Oh what to do?? Please help! Thanks!
