chicken waste

Collect Materials

In order to provide more nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium and other nutrients for organic fertilizer making, it is advisable to choose fresh chicken manure instead of old chicken poop. Fresh chicken waste can avoid contamination from antibiotics or other substances that could harm the composting process. In addition, you also need to collect some auxiliary materials, such as straw, sawdust, leaves, corn cobs, etc. They can balance the nitrogen content of the chicken manure and absorb excess moisture.


Fresh chicken manure usually has a high moisture of 70%-80%,even 90%. But for composting, the optimum water content of material is 45%-65%. Excessive water will block the passage of oxygen transportation, thereby affecting the effect of chicken dung aerobic fermentation. And there are two solutions to you. For one thing, as mentioned above, you can add dry auxiliary materials to absorb excess moisture. For another, you can use manure dewatering machine directly, which can reduce the water content of chicken poop to 30%-40%.
