It’s all in the title really. I have some old chick crumb and I think it counts as green but I’m not sure.

Whatever colour it is, I wouldn't put it in the compost heap as it will attract vermin.

It has a lot of nitrogen in it , lightly sprinkle it over ground you are about to till /dig over that way it's not a vermin attractant .
