How to make chicken manure compost?
The nutrient content of chicken manure is very rich. There are a lot of organic matter in chicken manure. It also contains high micro elements: nitrogen(1.63%), phosphorus(1.54%), potassium(0.85%). The amount of these three elements in chicken manure is equivalent to 4.5-7.7 times the content of these in cow manure, so chicken manure is one high-quality raw materials to make organic fertilizer.
Here are some methods for making compost from chicken manure.
First, you should prepare auxiliary materials such as straw, rice straw, wheat straw, etc.. Then you need add the auxiliary material to the chicken manure for stirring. The function of straw is to adjust the ratio of carbon to nitrogen and the moisture. It can also keep the material loose.
The water content of chicken manure is controlled between 50%-60%. After mixing well, the pile can be made into 1.5-3 meters wide and 1 meter high. At the same time, the air in the place where the materials are piled is circulated.
When the temperature of the compost pile reaches 55 degrees Celsius, the pile will be turned. Generally, the pile will be turned once every 3-4 days. If the temperature is too high, you can make some holes to properly dissipate heat.When the temperature in the compost pile drops to 45 degrees and the materials are loose, odorless, and grow white mycelium, it means that the fermentation has been successful. It can be applied to crops and plants.
