I've thought of putting chicken poo in a bucket of water for fertilizer, and I read a thread having to do with that very thing, but how much? You folks that actually do this, how much chicken poo to how much water do you use? I don't want to burn the plants, but on the other hand, I want to give them enough so that it makes a positive difference.

I use burlap bags and make "tea".... they are roughly 6x5 inches big and I soak them for 7 days in a 5 gallon bucket. "dunking" the tea bag everyday.

It's what works for me. I also scatter dry poo on my lawn. Grass LOVES the nitrogen.

Hope that helped.

You can also use pillow cases... fill it about 4 inches deep or less. I wouldn't do more.

I am so glad I diluted what I initially did then cause I had way more than that but it looked so strong. Out to scape off the poop boards again

You are welcome and yes... always wash the veggies well. Then again... I eat the stuff raw out of the garden sometimes and I ain't dead!!

I actually never get sick... can't remember a cold since I was a kid in school. That's a whole other discussion... Good luck with your garden this year!!!
