    Is there any gardening use for my chicken blood from processing?
    if so, how etc....

    how much brown matter do i need to restore a heavily pooped on area to life?
    how long before planting in that area?

    how do you use chicken manure in your garden?

    Yes, you can use chicken blood.

    Blood and bone meal is something that is sold in garden centers to be added to your garden. Personally, I would either add it to the compost pile, or bury it in the garden. If it is laying on the surface, it will attract flies and perhaps predators.

    Maybe remove a couple of inches of dirt then put the waste products in before covering and added more sand or dirt.
