Adopt a chicken to reduce your waste

Stop composting!

Overcycle your plant and animal waste

By hens, as a 1st productive step
in eggs and hens and compact fertilizer

Methanization, as 2nd stage
in energy and fertilizers
(or simply Composting, fertilizer)

3rd stage
If the agglomeration succeeds in reducing its collected waste by 7% over five years,
the agency agrees to pay him € 74 / year. : Mrgreen:

In the pot? : Mrgreen:

There is another post on this subject.

Decrease in the mass of household waste, Yes ...... but what is the mass of excrement ... which will return sooner or later in the so-called household waste (given the nice smell) .... Chui not arrived at find a link that talks specifically about this (mass eaten / mass laughed). : Mrgreen:

When mixed with ground wood, the odor parameter must be manageable ... and it will be an excellent fertilizer.

Hello,
To adopt hens, it is better to have a little land, in this case, droppings are no longer a problem.

If you are used to composting, hens will not reduce waste any more. Even more with the droppings and the straw of their litter.

They also need a food supplement, wheat or granules.
A chicken coop with a hatch that is better to close in the evening and open in the morning if you want to protect them from nocturnal predators.
A drinker and a manger.
You also need to have a nice neighbor who will take care of it in your absence.

The price of the beast comes into play little.

Trend ? don't waste collection companies have an interest in attracting the public?

Fashion phenomenon surely, the hen is nice on TV
but you have to take into account the disadvantages.
The smell, the flies that droppings attract
The rats and mice that food attracts
Nuisances that some neighbors will not bear in rare cases I admit.
The hen lays regularly until 2 years, then it decreases after 6 or 8 years more egg practically. she can live until 10 or 12 years old but where do we put her?
Small detail but ....
Formerly in family farms it was recycled as food.

From my point of view to recycle compostable waste, collection should be done separately.
It should be the first thing we should have sorted out. The rest less soiled could certainly be sorted with industrial means
Composting at home is good but there are small nuisances, odors, midges. A blow dry top, another too wet, it must be mixed, aerate.
Composting in large volumes is much more efficient, mastering.

Bulk composting may be more efficient (?), But disposal at source remains preferable. Personally, I do not compost in a heap, but on the surface ... (in reality, to speak of composting in this case is an abuse of language, but it is to put it simply).
Composting should, in my opinion, be reserved only for materials that cannot be treated otherwise, such as excrement. Everything else should participate in the life of the soil and not be "externalized", ie, transformed by bacteria to be then introduced into the soil to nourish the plants, thus bypassing the soil system.

There is undoubtedly a "fad": no need to ask yourself the question when you see "henhouses" flourish in Botanics, DIY stores, "summer" offers in hypermarkets ... At golden prices which quickly border on 500 euros ...

There are several possible reflections on the question.

From a certain amount of available biomass (organic waste from a family), we can consider several things:

a) pay and get rid of it; it is the collection of household waste and at worst, we burn at the end = a disaster

b) recover energy: specific collection and anaerobic digestion; not easy on an individual scale

c) valorize "nutritiously": composting and / or chicken feed and use of droppings, leftovers, etc ... as "food" from the garden and egg production

d) valorize as organic amendments: individually (individual composting) or collectively (sorting / separate collection / composting platform ... or, as said by ahmed, spread on the surface of the soil to nourish the life of the soil, with return of nutrients (and I agree with ahmed, which is better than composting when you have space and cultivate ...), in any case for anything that does not "stink" ...

Back to the problem: the hen significantly reduces the volume of waste. Like us, the volume of what she eats, if it is a fresh mass, is much more important than the droppings ...

On the other hand, chicken droppings are a fairly concentrated organic fertilizer, not to be confused with manure!

You have to have a use for it. The hen would therefore be more of an element of a system, which also includes the garden, etc.

having a hen is for the pleasure of taking care of an animal it is really not a solution for waste ... there will not necessarily be enough waste to feed it ... you have to buy grain ... higher budjet at the price of the simple elimination of the small amount of waste that the hen eats ... the hen does not eat everything, the majority of waste must always be disposed of otherwise

if you have to take the time to take care of the hen you need a certain number to make it profitable, and a rooster to make it happen again

the solution is not each a hen, but rather someone makes are small hen breeding and collecting from the neighbors what can feed the hens ... well unless the neighbors do not appreciate the song of the rooster

it's like anaerobic digestion: it is impossible for everyone to do a small anaerobic digester at home ... but it would be more interesting to do an average anaerobic digester on a village or hamlet scale, preferably associated with a farmer who put his manure there
