Using Chicken Feed In Compost

Hi everyone,

I'm just starting a compost pile and misread "chicken pellets" for my pile. I bought Pellet Feed, not Pellet Manure. Will the feed do me any good to add to the post? If so, what do I consider it? Green or brown?

If you have no other use for it, then yes put it in. Consider it a green from the protein. The bag should have an analysis on it.

take it back
My experience is that stores are very good about returned merchandise... even if it is open
