We have compost that is a mix of manure from our chickens, turkeys, and cows as well as some scraps from our commercial kitchen. Chicken manure packs a powerful nitrogen punch, almost twice that of horse manure. Once aged and/or composted, use it sparingly in areas where you’ll be growing crops that flower because excessive amounts of nitrogen may produce loads of leaves and you’ll be left wondering why you didn’t get any blooms or fruit. Corn craves nitrogen and is a good match for poultry poo. An average-size hen makes 1 cubic foot of manure every six months.
