    I'm on my first grow. I keep a small flock of 4 hens.

    What is the best way to use the chicken manure for nutrients? I've read that chicken doo must be composted before using. I have some dried poops that I've been saving up, can I use these? Or must they be composted first?

    MUST be composted. Composted, chicken manure it is a great all around fertilizer. Chicken manure's N-P-K ratio can range from 3-2.5-1.5 to 6-4-3, or there about.

    I have used chicken manure for many many years with good success. Personally I have used both composted and non composted manure. You must be very careful with noncomposted chicken manure as it can burn and or kill your plants. I normally use 1 part manure non composted with 10 parts of my soil mix. You also can make a tea with the manure on mature plants and water with this. Good Luck and planning ahead next time to compost in with the soil you are going to use for a couple of months.
