Sorry funny question I know, but I was wondering if my brooder poo would be able to be used immediately in my garden. It seems
like less ammonia than my adults?

I agree. the manure is not toxic in the garden ever... it's just that when it's fresh, it can burn plants (with ammonia, yes). It needs time to decompose/compost and mellow. Ammonia is a normal part of their waste and it is in chick manure as well as mature chicken manure. I say toss it on the compost pile and wait it out.
