Composting Chicken Manure?
I have a large chicken flock and as a result I get a lot of chicken manure. I know that chicken manure is really hot and must be composted before use. I was wondering what would be the best way to compost chicken manure, how long it takes to compost it and the best way to use it in a greenhouse (i.e. straight, mixed with other stuff etc.). Also, I am raising a lot of chicks this year and I use a lot of newspaper in my brooder (Thrifty Nickle). I get about a 50 gallon can full of newspaper mixed with chick droppings a month. Is it okay to compost the newspaper with the droppings? Thanks for the help.
