Chicken Manure Tea
I am making chicken manure tea by adding 20 kg. of fresh manure to 165 litres of water and letting it sit for eight weeks. Is this tea safe for the plants and trees, as I dilute it further by 3 litres of tea to 6 litres of water before applying. Secondly, what are chances of E. Coli and Salmonella breeding in this tea, and if it is, what is the method to eradicate it?

The tea mixture sound good. Ecoli and salmonella is a remote possibility, but if you are concerned, boiling it will kill any germs.
