Soil under/after chicken

I have questions about soil after chicken. The chicken coop was over the soil for nearly a year and I thought that I can use it for gardening but later I read that the soil is useless as nothing will grow. Can I build a raised bed over the soil or build a compost pile over it?

Was this an chicken pen area?

Chicken Manure makes excellent compost. Here is a link with more information.

I would not see any reason why you could not garden over an area as long as the manure has aged.

I would recommend a soil test prior to planting.
