I'm involved in a three way trade of labor for organic material for egg cartons. I'm the one contributing the egg cartons and it occurs to me that where there is need for egg cartons, there is chicken shit. I might like to complicate the deal by asking for some of it.
My only exposure to C.S. in a garden was in my in-laws' steamy Florida garden. Their sandy soil needed constant nutrient input, so they would pick up loads of C.S. from a commercial hen house. When we visited from out of town after an application directly to the soil, it smelled to high heaven!
So I'm wondering if it is even possible to use it in close urban spaces without the neighbors wanting to run me out on a rail. The guy who has the chickens in his back yard doesn't seem to have any problem, but maybe he cleans it up (and disposes of it where?) twice a day. I have not seen his set up, but I've been by his place and his yard is tiny, so I don't think he's using it for his own plants.
I'd envision very thinly spreading the C.S. and whatever straw or leaves it is on across the surface of the garden rather than composting it. I know it is very high nitrogen. What do you think? Can I get by with that without hurting the neighbors' noses and stomachs?
