using poultry manure on garden
I may be doing the wrong thing and now I am worried. I keep 8 hens and use straw for bedding. Since this fall I have been cleaning out their pen about once a week and spredding the wet straw including droppings on my dormant garden. I thought I could till it in and plant this spring. Should I have composted the bedding instead. Will it be safe to plant ?
Thanks , I appreciate any advice from experienced organic gardeners.
