Chicken manure is acidic? So, compost made from it would acidify the soil? (oops sorry I don't mean to hijack the thread- should I re post elsewhere? ) I always used clean dust free straw in my nesting boxes, the hens liked it and liked to move the straw around. I'd change the straw regularly for fresh stuff.
