I don't think I'd use hardwood chips. Perhaps some aspen shavings like used for bet bedding.

Yes there was some wood in dung bros, but not large chunks of it. Whatever it was, it was mostly composted. Large chunks of hardwood will not compost quickly enough.

I wouldn't bother adding it to compost if I were cooking some. I think it was only in the dung bros because wood shavings were used as bedding in a stable or something. If anything wood shavings will only add to the structure of a compost, and not much to it's nutrition, and I never had a problem with the structure of homemade compost.

PM me with any cultivation questions.

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.

Thanks guys,Im just going to make up the pile without the wood
shavings/chips since it probably wont help the structure too much.
besides, the wheatstraw should give it enough structure.
