Please don't think I am stupid, but as I stated in an earlier thread, my boys and I are "trying" to have our first garden this year.... To use chicken manure from the hen house, does it have to age or can it be used directly from the hen house to the garden. Also, my children primarily use stray and/or hay for the chickens bedding, would you put that directly into the garden? I am just trying to figure all of this out as I go. I apologize in advance if this is a really ignorant question... Thanks.
