The actual NPK values vary with the age of the birds, what they eat and how old the manure is. My brother-in-law is using composted chicken manure this year on his gardens for the first time and is ecstatic about it. The manure he got was from his daughter's chicken 4-H project. I recommend you read <EM>Storey's Guide to Raising Chickens</EM> by Gail Damerow. Fertilizer info is on p. 249.</BLOCKQUOTE></DIV><p>
