Over the last year I've been making compost using lawn clippings, fallen leaves, chicken poop, a bit of dirt and biological infusion of the last batch of compost. It's been working well but I find myself in a quandary of abundance - The trash cans that I normally use are already full and not ready to dump and reload.
After reading in several other blogs how people have their chickens spread their compost piles to keep it mixed up, I figured I'd let my girls have a go at the clippings. I normally give them hay or straw as litter and shovel out their droppings often. With the excess of litter building up I've turned the ground in their coop several times for them to enjoy the grubs and other bits the can scratch out.
Lets hear it for digging forks! My chickens act like it's Christmas when I turn up their coop.
