is chicken poo good for the garden
thanks bulbaholic



Fresh from the hen house or the buckets of dried stuff from the Garden Center?
Fresh from the hen house - definitely not good, it is far too strong. It needs to be stored and dried for a long time before you could use it.
Pelleted manure from the Garden Center is good for boosting the leaves of plants as it is rich in nitrogen.

it seems to put the cats off from using my garden as a loo, but it does make the whole garden smell a bit, but i definitely know which poo i prefer in my garden!

We have a chicken shed next door, and the fresh stuff - even the stuff that has built up to a depth of about a foot makes your eyes stream with the ammonia in it when our neighbour is digging it out. Consider the effect on plants - however, composted in the open air for about a year might mitigate the 'orrid effects, and I'm sure your plants will romp away with a dressing of this.
