Q.Does using chicken manure in the garden create more weeds?

Zone 99004 | Cameo added on September 17, 2012 | Answered

We have 30 chickens and use their manure to fertilize our garden. We have only had a garden 2 years now and we are still learning. We have been told that chicken manure is creating more weeds in our garden because of all the grains that the chickens eat. Is there any truth in this?

That's unlikely, but if weed seeds are a concern for you, then composting the chicken manure is an option. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/composting/manures/chicken-manure-fertilizer.htm
