It is generally not recommended to add poultry, such as chicken or turkey, to a home composting bin.

Poultry can attract pests and animals and may produce an unpleasant smell as it decomposes.

In addition, poultry can harbor bacteria and other pathogens that can be harmful to humans if they come into contact with the compost.

If you have leftover poultry that you want to dispose of, it is generally better to wrap it in a plastic bag and throw it in the trash, rather than adding it to a home composting bin.
