Dispose of the chicken poop by putting it in the compost pile. It’s full of both the browns (litter like wood shavings) and the greens (poop) you need to build a good compost, so into the compost bin it goes! With the right additions you’ll have black gold in no time.
What do I do with my chicken poop?
Chicken owners normally use bedding such as shavings, sawdust, dry leaves, or straw to provide a dry cushion for chickens and to control odor and pests. The coop bedding can be collected with the manure and dumped into a composting bin.
What do you do with chicken poop from the coop?
I put a layer of old litter from the coop floor in each tray and slide the trays under the roost. The poop falls through the fencing and into the tray. Every couple of days I just pick the trays up and dump the contents into my compost pile.
Do you have to pick up chicken poop?
If conditions aren’t too damp, pick up as much chicken poop as you can from the yard by raking it or picking it up with gloved hands. Large, well-formed manure is fresher, and it’s easier to pick up than manure that was trapped under heavy snow. Old manure that has dried is easy to rake away from the grass.
How do you dissolve chicken poop?
Mix equal parts vinegar and water to create a cleaning solution and mop up the area for an all-natural cleaning. Take a hand brush or thick-bristled broom and scrub the floors and walls to free any remaining droppings, stains, dirt, or debris. Rinse once more.
How long does it take for chicken poop to break down?
The decomposition process typically takes six months if materials are a half-inch or smaller. At this time, you are ready to use the compost as natural fertilizer for your lawn and garden! Mix thoroughly composted material into garden soil 2-3 weeks prior to planting.
