chicken manure from commercial farm
Hi. I have access to chicken manure from a local farmer who raises chickens commercially (ie a large chicken house, thousands of chickens in a single house; not to be confused with a farmer who has a few chickens in a coup simply to get eggs). My question is, is it safe to use this chicken manure in my compost? Almost certainly these chickens are fed non-organic feed (I've heard there's antibiotics, etc in the feed). I'm guessing bagged manure sold at a garden/hardware store would come from a similar commercial operation, so wondering if it's ok to use in my compost? Thanks!
