Chicken Poop in My Worm Bin

Chicken poop in my worm bin (1)

Though chicken manure can be great for a flower garden, it is not the kind of food you ought to feed your composting worms.

Chicken droppings are relatively dry, contain high levels of salts, off-gas ammonia, and offer far too much nitrogen to put into the worm bin “fresh”.

To get them to the point of being safe, they would need to be soaked, aged, and mixed with a great deal of other materials before being fed to compost worms.

Chicken manure, along with that of any other bird, is best left out of the worm bin.
