I just started a garden this year and my soil is very poor. I didn't and any fertilizer of manure because I want to do the whole permaculture things, compost, chicken ect.. I have 2 sources of chicken poop. I have the poop that comes from the tractor which goes straight into the ground. Then I also have the poop/shaving mix from the coop. I understand poop is too strong and it can burn the plants so it needs to be aged. I was wondering how people age the poop. Do you just have a big pile of poop and shavings? How long does it take until it can be mixed with dirt. Any advice would be appreciated as I am new to both chickens and gardening.
