Save a little on chicken feed.
Save a lot on not buying some stupid commercially made composter system thing.
Make great compost with extra nitrogen from chicken poop.
Keep chickens from destroying compost pile.
some of my best compost is made this way. its really rich and fertile and all i had to do was push it downhill into the bin i made. it also can make quite a bit of compost fast if you add enough matertials.
Soil: Are you saying that there is are two side walls, one front wall, and no back wall? Where the back wall should be is the side that slopes down hill? When the chickens scratch, poop, and shred it, the matter ends up down hill, and then you return the matter back to the bin that you had previously put in the bin the week before?
i think the open side faces uphill?
