Chicken poop is very common in our daily life. But how to use them and maximize their advantages is what we need to consider. There are many ways to dispose of chicken manure. The process method involved is worth studying. The effects of chicken manure processed by different methods are also different. In order to make better use of chicken poop, I will help you answer your questions in terms of processing methods and equipment used.

A Surprising Technology to Help You Dispose of Chicken Poop

The commonly used process for chicken manure treatment is aerobic fermentation. Adopting this process method makes the chicken poop compost warm up quickly and the fermentation temperature is high. Shortening the cycle of chicken manure decomposing greatly.The equipment suitable for this process method is also different, and I will introduce them one by one below.

Groove Type Compost Turner for Chicken Poop Disposal

First of all, you need to build a fermentation groove with a width of 6 meters, a depth of 1.5 meters, and a length of 50-100 meters. Then you put the configured chicken manure material into the groove. The material is preliminarily crushed and stirred by a trough-type composting machine. Make the material fully exposed to oxygen to achieve the fermentation effect.

Strip stack fermentation equipment includes crawler type composting machine and moving compost turner. For both of these, you need to stack the materials in long strips in advance. Each row of materials is 4-6 m wide and about 2 m high. And the length is determined according to the actual situation. You can install ventilation pipes under the material pile to supplement your material oxygen.Coupled with the continuous composting of the equipment, increasing the contact surface between the material and the air. Ultimately achieving perfect fermentation.

How to Turn Chicken Manure into Fertilizer with Corresponding Equipment?

  • First of all, you need to fully turn over and ferment the prepared chicken manure material. You can use a groove-type composting machine to initially crush and stir the material. Then the material is rapidly heated and fermented through the organic fertilizer fermenter.

  • Second, you can use a semi-wet material crusher for pulverization. This equipment can directly pulverize raw materials with a water content of 30-50% into formable particle sizes below 0.5mm.

  • Then, you can use the wet granulation technology for granulation processing. Achieving the granulation by a drum granulator.

  • Finally, you need to dry and cool the finished fertilizer. In this way, achieving the requirement of bag moisture below 25%. Once you’ve done the above, you’re ready to pack.

Fermentation Method to Make Bio Fertilizer for Disposing of Chicken Poop

As long as you handle chicken manure correctly, you can turn chicken manure into treasure to produce bio-organic fertilizer. Let me introduce its fermentation steps for you.

You need to add 1 to 1.5 tons of dry chicken manure (about 2.5 to 3.5 tons of fresh chicken manure) and one kilogram of chicken manure organic fertilizer biological starter. And adding an average of 5-10 kg of rice bran to each kg of starter. After stirring well, you need to sprinkle it into the prepared chicken manure for the best effect.

You need to keep the carbon-nitrogen ratio of fermented chicken manure at 25~30:1. It is advisable to adjust the pH to 6 ~ 8 (ph). Because the carbon-to-nitrogen ratio of chicken manure is relatively high, you should add some straw and straw to ferment together when fermenting.

It is very important whether the moisture content is appropriate in the process of fermenting organic fertilizer. It should not be too high or too low, and should be kept at 60-65%. Judgment method: You need to hold a handful of materials tightly. You can see the watermark between your fingers but not drip. And it is advisable to scatter on the ground.

Actionable Tips on Dried Chicken Manure

If you are not dispose of  fresh chicken manure, it will cause a series of problems. Especially in summer, the smell can be very strong. And there are a lot of bacteria and viruses in chicken manure, which is also the main route of disease transmission. So it is imminent to deal with chicken manure.

Wet chicken manure is not convenient for storage for subsequent operations. Therefore, in order to better carry out subsequent process such as fertilizer making and sales, you can prepare chicken manure for dehydration first. Through the manure dehydrator, you can drain the excess water in the chicken manure, so that it can be made into dry chicken manure later.

Manure dryer to Treat with Chicken Poop

To further reduce the moisture content of chicken manure, you can use a dryer. With the manure dryer, you can dry manure with a water content of up to 70%-80% to a water content of 13%. In addition, we can also customize the dryer according to your needs.

Pre-treatment of chicken manure can facilitate subsequent operations. You can use the above method as a reference.

Traditional Fermentation VS Microbial Rapid Fermentation

Traditional fermentation takes a long time, usually 1 to 3 months.And the surrounding stench is unpleasant, and there are a lot of mosquitoes and flies. Environmental pollution is very serious. When the chicken manure is relatively wet, auxiliary materials need to be added, which requires more labor.

Microbial rapid fermentation is to use organic fertilizer fermenter to ferment and decompose chicken manure. By adding biological fermentation bacteria and combining the heat energy of the equipment itself for decomposing. This fermenter can automatically adjust the moisture according to the state of the material. And according to the stirring device in the tank, the material fermentation is more uniform and thorough. In addition, the whole process is closed and treated, which is environmentally friendly and hygienic and has a strong deodorizing function.

From the above point of view, compared with the traditional fermentation mode, the organic fertilizer fermentation tank should be more suitable for you.
