Great new idea for ‘hot’ manure!

While I was reading a post from the Organic Chickens Yahoo Group, I came across a great idea!

Using fresh and thus ‘hot’ chicken poo to kill grass.  Think about it.  You want to put in a new garden, but first you have to remove the sod and fertilize the soil and/or add lots of compost.  If you’re like me the idea of removing the sod is so strenuous to think about that the new garden or flower bed never gets put in and you have to continue to mow that stretch of grass.  Now though I can go out to the coop and collect a few nights droppings and toss them on the future garden site and then toss some compost on top.  2-5 months later you’ve got a well fertilized bed to plant in and less grass to cut! 

Can’t believe I didn’t think of it myself!
