Would liquid manure be good to add to chips to help them break down faster into compost?

It can help some, but it would be a very good idea to let them fully compost before using them. Living, or fresh would chips can sap precious nutrients from the manure, and actually give plants severe deficiencies. I would just make sure they are fully composted before adding them.
