Chickens How Much Manure in A Day?
#1
Good day people. Like how much manure will a chicken produce in a day? Just want to estimate how much fertilizer I can get.

A single layer weighing 1.8kg can generate manure of up to 113.4g/day. About 75% of this amount is water, so we're left with 28.35g dry manure in a day. This value does not include the litter material. If one layer hen produces 28.35g dry manure in a day, 5000 birds will produce 141.8kg of dry manure per day, 4252.5kg in 30 days and 51757kg in a year. That's a lot of manure to dispose. Now imagin the quantity of manure 50,000 birds will produce - 517,570 in a year. - Adapted from [a href="http://www.farmersjoint.com/blog/livestock-farming/feeding-poultry-litter-to-ruminants/"]Feeding Poultry Litter to Ruminants[/a]
