Down with the old coop in with the new coop

chicken coop, Compost Pile

Hey all I got some time to finally complete the chickens new residence! They are living good in this quant lil toasty shack. Waters clean and the food plentiful. Got to smash up the old eyesore of a “coop” where they used to live. 

All that rich fertile chicken scat made its way to the compost pile before demolitionthe birds were setting into there new breezy lower level. Seem to be liking it, I already got one eggs out of the new nesting box location.
That rich fertile chicken poo will provide bountiful yields this year. People say that chicken poop can burn your plants however I’m not sure that’s the case, others online report the opposite.

Lots of people say aging the manure is best choice for good results. I guess just try try and try again. You’ll figure out what works out back there yonder.

Keep on trucking

Worms in the compost!!

Compost Pile, Winter 2015

So I cleaned the coop out yesterday all the chicken floor was fine fine brown powder! I scooped out about 3 buckets full and put on the compost pile! So you know I gave it a good tossing and realized I’ve got tons of worms out there. This compost is going to be great by spring! Literally tossed it 4 times and saw zillions of these worms I put in the summer time. The worms feed on my food waste and poop out worm castings! Worm castings along with the micro organisms all create a fertile soil. I’m so glad cause I put these worms in the summer and never saw them but now they’re flourishing. Redwigglers is the breed of worms I like to compost with, they work the fastest. And breed like worms, they lay things called pods frequent as heck, and then each pod can produce up to three worms! I’ll try to look the numbers up again. But trust me it’s worth it to add them to your comspost pile!
