2 worm farm (baths) going into compost bin? Benefits?

Hi,
We've got 2 baths that will be worm farms, up against a large compost area.

The main aims are to not have to turn the compost (hence the large bin/area), for food scraps to be recycled, and not have rats attracted to the area.

The large compost is looking to break down bamboo leaves, and larger organic matter around the property, and worms for scraps.
The current idea is to pipe the worm wee into the larger bin, and alternatively bottle some. I'm wondering on the benefits of piping the worm wee into the larger bin, if it will aid in breakdown?

Also an idea to have 3 round compost bins, with chicken wire bottoms hanging over the large bin for drainage and to stop rats - think this is overkill?


Any suggestions/better direction on this? Trying to get onto it this afternoon.
Cheers legends
Alex
