I just got chickens a weeks ago. I know you can use chicken manure in your garden but assume it's not fresh manure? Explain to me what to do or not to do with chicken manure in my garden. I don't have a compost pile, I probably will at some point but after the cost and time of building a coop I won't be able to ask my hubby for a compost bin for a few months, lol. I can pile the manure in the corner of the pen if it just needs to dry out. My mom just sprinkles it in her flower beds but, while I do have some flowers, more of my garden is fruit and veggies. Thank you ahead of time to any who answer.
