how long to keep chicken manure before using on garden?

I have four chickens and want to use the chicken poop+ straw for my vegetable garden. I understand you can't put manure straight onto the garden as it will burn plants, but how long do I have to keep it to rot down, and how? Should it be open to the air, in bags or what?
Thank you in advance, interesting site by the way!
