Goose manure ??

Post  jimmy cee on 3/9/2013, 4:11 pm

I haven't looked through here to see if any one ever thought of this one.
How about Goose droppings, manure, poop whatever it's called.
There are many areas close by and geese sure aren't scarce around here.
Could that be one of the compost's ?

I have it in my compost. Goosegirl, who is on this forum, said to make sure it ages, so I only put it on in the beginning when I'm building anew pile that cooks for the better part of a year.

My compost bins of 11 cu ft each ..
All seven of them have a good two buckets of small farm /ed goose muck and associated beddings in each of them plus a miriad of other balance things .

Everything was done by the 18 day hot composting method but I did turn them almost once each week , not every three days as the method demands .

Because I'm disabled I aireated the broken down heaps with the spring lawn rakes on my electric mantis tiller to really tear things apart and remix the heaps .

I used almost 1/4 of a bin of the fully finished compost last year , it was about nine months old by then , it has given me some fantastic results so far .

Does anything think the droppings from Canada Geese are OK?
Sometimes we have flock of them on our soccer and softball fields: they really do make a mess.

Thats exactly what I'm referring to
Canadian Geese
I could make a local golf course owner very happy by removing some
