    Has anyone ever made fertilizer to sell with their chicken poo?
    If so what do I need to know about the % of poo to water?
    My 3 girls free range and it has made my grass green I just shoot the hose on high pressure on each poo and it goes right into the lawn.
    But to make a liquid batch to sell I wasn't sure of the % what I need to know about selling it?
    Thanks for your advice.

    We use regular 'ol dried poo for garden fertilizer. Scoop it out of the coop and dump it.

    Liquid chicken fertilizer.... oh the smell!

    Much better dry and solid in my opinion.

    I have been thinking on this too..

    I am oing to try and bubble (Aerate to add oxygen) the poo and water with a beneficial bacteria added to mineralize it.. I am not sure on the ratio, chicken poo is hot stuff!

    (Yes dry and solid is nice... I grow lettuce indoors and it likes a nice shot of Nitrogen in the last three weeks of growth. So, I am looking to create a liquid concoction for bottom watering, so I can provide the organic nutrient but not apply it to the tops of the plants.)
