Fertilizer Tea

Anonymous added on August 14, 2011 | Answered

I want to make fertilizer tea from chicken manure to get the maximum nutrients. What is the recipe and process, and can I use fresh manure or does it have to be composted prior to making tea? What is the percentage of NPK and other nutrients?
