I cannot tell yet if all those dead bodies are composted already, since the pile is started one year ago, and I kept adding until half a year ago. Next autumn I will dig into the pile and we will find out (I cant wait for it, my first selfmade compost!).
For composting I follow the instructions from Jenkins' Humanure handbook, so far it seems like a right aproach to me.

I would like to try composting the roadkill instead of just having the bodies to to waste. I did some research and found some cities compost dead deer with great success. Has anyone ever tried composting small animals? Would love to hear about it.
