Ever since we got the chickens, my life has revolved around them.......and their poop. Chickens do three things, they eat, poop and sleep, and then poop again, and poop some more. Luckily, our composting bins have been in great need of a nitrogen boost, so there you have it. We have been placing the chicken poop directly into our composters and watching the temperatures soar. I watched the internal temperature of one pile of compost rise 40 degrees in one day, topping off at 145 degrees. It's definitely helping the microbial action do it's microbial thing.
