Not the sort of question you’d have at the dinner table but still an important one. Many people get so wrapped up in the excitement of getting their hens they forget about the more basic practicalities.
Anyone that has been following our Facebook page will know I asked this question earlier in the week.
Most of our followers suggest the compost heap is king. I agree it makes magic compost I have 3 compost bins and a veggie patch.
However most of mine is bagged up (not the most pleasant of jobs) and taken to a local nursery that supports people with enduring mental health problems.
Bearing in mind I have 18 hens they make a significant amount of poo over the month.
If I didn’t have this avenue available to me I would either put a notice up at my gate 9 attracting lots of strangers to my door), Or get in touch with the local allotment association. I’m sure they would have members interested in free hen poo.
If you have any other suggestions or helpful hints then please let us know.
