    Hi All, I was wondering if anyone has found a use for chicken blood. If you are butchering 100's at a time you know that it can add up. Has anyone used it as fertilizer? I understand that it is really high in nitrogen.

    In the olden days it was said to draw poison and have medicinal purposes or something like that.

    You might want to post this on the butchering thread so you don't irk people.

    I might have to give that recipe a shot, though I probably shouldn't tell hubby about the chicken blood until AFTER he tries it, otherwise he might not try it. lol

    Perhaps you could add water and use it in the garden or compost bin. It might attract animals though.

    Bloodmeal is one of the highest forms of nitrogen fertilizer...I would think that if you are into composting and have a large garden, you could use it, to fire up a compost pile.
