    Chicken Manure

    Hey guys!

    Recently I got a chicken in my backyard.
    Now this animal is a pooping machine! I heard that you can use the manure as a N rich fertilizer.
    Does anyone know how do I use/make the fertilizer out of the chicken poop?
    any info will be good

    Chicken poop is REALLY high nitrogen fertilizer. It's not appropriate for an indoor grow, but start a compost heap and put your chicken poop on it. Every fall, turn your compost heap and take the bottom, most broken-down layer, and put it into your vegetable garden. Work it in well and let it sit over the winter.
    As a bonus, chickens' favorite food is crawling insects. Once your garden is growing well and the plants are too big to be trampled, your chicken will happily kill bugs for you and turn them into more poops.
