What are the benefits of chicken manure?
Chicken manure contains organic matters, macro and micro elements and nutrients. It improves soil fertility. In addition to the nutritional aspects, animal fertilizers are used for improving soil texture and structure and for increasing the cotionic exchange capacity of the soil.

What is the most practical way of using chicken manure for fruit trees?
The best method is localized placement with regard to the surface applied fertilizer in this manner: At a 50 cm distance from the tree trunk, 2 to 3 holes are dug with 30 to 40 cm in depth and 50 centimeters in width, 0.5-1 kg of chicken manure is poured into each hole, and the soil is poured back into the holes. After that, the holes needs watering.

When to use chicken manure?
 In different seasons, chicken manure is used in farms. But if used in autumn, there will be more time for the decomposition of manure and the release of its nutrients. It is not recommended using chicken manure in autumn in order to prevent the nitrogen waste in light textured soils. There is little time for using it to prevent nitrogen waste in spring. On the other hand, the spring delays crop and planting operations and the application of manure may increase soil compaction.

What are the disadvantages of using fresh and unprocessed chicken manure compared to completely dry and processed fertilizer?
The fresh livestock manure contains sufficient amount of salt, the continuous use of which results in the accumulation of salt in the soil surrounding the tree and plant root. Due to the increased salt, the root cannot absorb water and nutrients, and gradually the leaves go yellow and dry. Fresh manure may contain a lot of nitrogen, which can disturb the vegetative and reproductive growth of plants.

What is the difference between broiler and egg-laying chicken manure?
Broiler chicken manure contains greater amount of protein and nitrogen, while egg-laying chicken manure contains greater amount of phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, manganese, zinc and copper.

What is the difference between manure of caged and cage-free egg-laying chickens?
The caged type is pure and more nutritious, but the cage-free type is not that much pure and it may increase the soil pH due to the use of lime in poultry farms.
