there was a composter here when we bought the place, so we've been adding kitchen scraps to it. chicken poo sounds quite interesting. would make a good addition i'm sure. :) i've toyed with the idea of keeping a few chooks myself, but am nervous about not having enough space and about the mess they make. i'd love your view on that if don't mind sharing your experiences. we taking a beekeeping class at the moment at unitec and are hoping to start keeping bees sometime soon.
