Chicken Manure Fertilizers: Introduction
- Chicken manure is the feces of chickens used as organic fertilizer, especially for soil low in nitrogen. It has the highest amount of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium of all animal manures. Chicken manure is preferred for usage in the vegetable garden than. Chicken manure fertilizer has high amount of nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus. Presence of high nitrogen and balanced nutrients is the reason that chicken manure compost is the ideal kind of manure.
- Sometimes, the high nitrogen in the chicken manure can be dangerous to plants if the manure has not been properly composted. Raw chicken manure fertilizer can burn, and even kill plants. Composting chicken manure mellows the nitrogen and makes the manure suitable for the garden. Chicken manure helps produce excellent soil for vegetables to grow.

It takes about six to nine months, on an average, for chicken manure compost to be done properly. The exact amount of time it takes for composting chicken manure depends on the conditions under which it is composted.
