Scratchers

I throw all my garden waste into chicken run. I know most chickens scratch but is there any breed of chicken that will scratch around more than others.. the idea being that as they scratch they turn the compost

Most game breeds, would be more active.

The light breeds such as leghorns, Anconas,andulasian tend to be very active this way but all will scratch
