Not recommended

One of LP's other jobs is helping out at a nearby farm.  It was that time of year when the chicken sheds are stripped out and deep cleaned and I was offered a couple of trailer loads of well rotted poultry poo.  With one large compost bin completely empty it would have been rude to say no . . .

With the benefit of hindsight, I might not accept such an offer again.  Even though the muck I received came from the bottom of the shed and was very 'mature', during the heat of summer it still had a rather more pungent aroma than Management was happy with (I just figured it smelled of the countryside . . . )  It has also weeped and seeped sideways and made quite a mess of the grass.  When we eventually get to use this bin it will be interesting to see whether all the smell and seepage was worth it.
