You need to cut off all the mucky bits, whatever it is it will spread if you dont.

I am only looking at it on my phone but assume its mildew of damp rot.

How many are there? If jusf a few I would collect them up and bring them home, when no one is looking.

Or you could just say to the owner that someone was here looking at your chickens, They noticed you didnt give them water and they were making n

otes.But then I am a great one for diving in on situations, too brave really! I know not everyone can do it. Having kept chickens, ducks and geese and incubated rare breeds, I really feel for poultry.

Apparently it helps to pee on the heap but I read somewhere that only applies to blokes.

I think that might only be because they have a built in hosepipe!!! - it's ok I'm going....

That is because womens pee is much to acid for the compost heap, mens isnt.

They do get a bit leggy, I take cuttings each year, next summer those cuttings will be about 2ft tall and flowering, if not, you can chop it down, I have done mine at any time, I expect someone will tell you it should be done in the spring.

I would go for cuttings and dump the leggy ones.
