I am after some info or advice if anyone can help me. I currently am using my chook run as a deep litter system. They are also free range and they spend at least half the day out in the garden. I put straw in the litter system along with any green waste and kitchen waste. I also put some lime in too to help the chooks with lice control. So I have a few questions: 1. I am wondering how long I should leave it before I rake it out 2. Once I have racked it out, I am going to put it in a pile to rot down. Any ideas about how long I should do this before I put it on the garden? Thanks.
