We have a series of advanced organic fertilizer production equipment and can customize a feasible chicken manure organic fertilizer production plan according to your actual situation. Our professional team will provide you with technical support to ensure the efficient operation of the production process so that chicken manure can be fully utilized and make a positive contribution to agricultural production and environmental protection.

chicken waste management

The scientific treatment of chicken manure is a key link to ensure the environmental protection and resource utilization of chicken farms. First of all, collect chicken manure regularly from chicken coops or chicken farms to ensure that the source is hygienic and healthy. Subsequently, by mixing with carbon source materials such as straw and rice straw, the carbon-nitrogen ratio is adjusted to promote the decomposition of organic matter.

The first option——To make chicken manure waste compost

Two types of high-efficiency composting equipment: Organic Fertilizer Fermentation Tank and Compost Turner

Organic Fertilizer Fermentation Tank:

  • Output: 3~4.5 m³/day
  • Power Supply: 380V50Hz
  • Treatment capacity: 7~10 m³/day

Chicken manure composting is a process of converting chicken manure into nutritious base fertilizer through steps such as proper mixing, ventilation, and humidity control. Here is the general process for chicken manure composting:

  • Collect materials: Collect fresh chicken manure and other organic materials such as straw, grass clippings, discarded plant materials, etc. These additional materials help provide a carbon source and adjust the carbon-to-nitrogen ratio of the compost, encouraging better microbial activity.
  • Mixing: Mix chicken manure with other organic materials to ensure a good carbon-to-nitrogen ratio. Generally speaking, the ideal carbon-to-nitrogen ratio is 25:1 to 30:1. Mixing helps distribute nutrients evenly and prevents overly wet or dry conditions.
  • Humidity control: Maintaining proper humidity is crucial for the growth of microorganisms and the fermentation process of compost. The humidity of the compost material should be maintained between 50% and 60%. If it’s too wet, you can add dry ingredients; if it’s too dry, you can add water.
  • Ventilation: Providing good ventilation is key to controlling oxygen supply during composting. Regularly turning compost materials, promotes the entry of oxygen, prevents anaerobic fermentation, and reduces the generation of odor.
  • Temperature control: In the early stages of composting, microbial activity will cause the temperature of the compost pile to increase. High temperatures help kill pathogens and weed seeds and speed up the decomposition of organic matter. Temperatures usually gradually decrease during the composting process.

Compost Turner:

  • Power:75~143kw
  • Capacity: 500~1800m³/h
  • Working Speed 6-10m/min

During the fermentation of compost materials, microorganisms produce heat and organic acids by decomposing organic matter. This stage usually takes from weeks to months, depending on factors such as the material composition of the compost, humidity, aeration and temperature. After the fermentation period, the compost needs to go through a maturation period to allow it to stabilize. Compost at this stage can be applied to farm fields, gardens or other planting sites.


Fermented chicken manure can be used as an organic fertilizer to provide nutrients for crops and improve the soil. After the fermentation process is complete, the compost needs to be sifted to remove any large pieces of undecomposed material, and the final product should be a fine, loose, odorless organic fertilizer.

Fermented chicken manure can be used to fertilize crops in different ways, such as spreading it on the soil surface, mixing it in the bed soil, or spraying it directly. When fertilizing, you need to pay attention to the amount and frequency of fertilization and avoid excessive use to avoid damage to the soil and plants. When applying fermented chicken manure, you need to pay attention to the method and time of fertilization to avoid damage to plants such as burning roots and leaves. Generally speaking, chicken manure can be spread on the surface of the soil and then lightly tilled, or mixed into the bed soil and used. 

The second option——Making Chicken Manure Organic Fertilizer for Sale

The fermented chicken manure can be further processed, such as being pelletized and packaged for sale. Through the pelleting process, chicken manure can be more easily stored, transported, and applied to farmland. The process of pelleting chicken manure usually involves grinding and mixing the fermented chicken manure and then using a granulator to compress it into pellets. The particles can be relatively uniform in size and shape, making it easier for farmers to apply fertilizer as needed. Packaged chicken manure pellets extend their shelf life and are easier to store and sell.  How to use chicken manure processing equipment to make organic fertilizer? Let’s look down together.

The production of powdered organic fertilizer is relatively straightforward and requires relatively few pieces of equipment. The specific steps for producing powdered organic fertilizer are as follows:

  • Firstly, use a crusher to break down potential clumps. This step ensures that chicken manure, after being crushed, can generate a uniform powdered fertilizer. The crusher effectively breaks down the chicken manure, making it easier to process.
  • Next, utilize a rotary drum screener to sift the powdered organic fertilizer. The screening machine retains qualified organic fertilizer powder and sieves out products with inadequate particle sizes. This helps improve the overall quality of the final product. Products with inadequate particle sizes are sent back to the crusher for secondary crushing to ensure they meet the required particle size.
  • Finally, for better storage and convenient transportation, employ a fertilizer packing machine to package the powdered organic fertilizer based on specified requirements.
Granular chicken waste organic fertilizer processing

In addition to making chicken manure into powder, another form is to make chicken manure organic fertilizer into granules and package it for sale. This production line includes multiple steps and organic fertilizer equipment, such as a rotary drum granulator, dryer, cooler, fertilizer coating machine, fertilizer packaging machine, etc. The following are the detailed production steps of chicken manure granular organic fertilizer:

Fertilizer Granulator Machine:

  • Capacity(t/h): 1~20
  • Types: Rotary Drum Granulator; Disc Granulator; Flat Die Pellet Mill; Ring Die Pellet Mill
  • Application:Livestock manure; Food waste; Mushroom residue; Municipal sludge; Crop straw
  • Crushing process: Preliminary processing includes mixing fresh chicken manure with other organic materials and crushing them through a fertilizer crusher to ensure that the raw materials are evenly mixed.

  • Screening process: Use a rotary screen machine for screening to ensure the uniformity and purity of chicken manure compost. This helps safeguard the quality of the final product.

  • Mixing process: The chicken manure compost and other additive materials are evenly mixed through the mixing process to ensure a uniform fertilizer effect. The batching machine can be used to control the proportion of different materials.

  • Granulation process: The mixture is compressed into granular organic fertilizer using a rotary drum granulator. This is one of the most critical steps in the production line and directly affects the quality of the finished product.

  • Drying and cooling process: The newly made organic fertilizer particles are passed through a dryer to remove excess moisture, and the stability of the particles is improved through a cooler.

  • Coating process: In this step, a coating machine can be used to add a layer of film to the granular organic fertilizer to improve the aesthetics and moisture resistance of the granules.

  • Packaging process: Finally, the granular organic fertilizer is packaged according to specifications through a packaging machine. This helps facilitate storage and transportation and ensures the product is easy to handle during use.
