I'd think they'd bag the chicken poop and sell it to farmers for agricultural fertilizer... it's very high in minerals and Nitrogen. You must use a lot of water with it or you'll burn your plants ! <br><br>My dad raised "show chickens" cornish hens, wyandots, bantums... so we always had manure to use around the flower beds and on the lawn... he love to raise flowers too, so the 2 kinda complemented each other. <br><br>Anyway... I guess it's cheaper and easier to just flush it into the bay! <br><br>David (OFI)
Any nitrogen fertilizer has to be used wisely. Something that no one is doing if they can get it cheaply. There are dead zones in Chesapeake Bay and out into the Gulf of Mexico as well as countless place around the world.<br><br>But don't blame the chicken [censored]. Blame the users of the fertilizer. But they can't help themselves. You get 40% increase per acre you are going to cover your acres with nitrogen fertilizer.<br><br>Wait a few years now that nitrogen fertilizer is now jumping in price and the water might clear of the algae blooms that cause the dead zones. Nitrogen fertilizer pellets made from nitrogen in the atmosphere seemed like the miracle panacea for world food shortages. But did anyone realize to make it from the air you needed barrels of energy?<br><br>Perdue will be selling the chicken [censored] as fertilizer and it will be more expensive so much less will run into the Chesapeake. The upside to expensive oil.<br><br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>60 million tons of chickens<p><hr></blockquote><p> Is that number right? Shees, that is a lot of chicken.<br><br>
