When it comes to waste management

it is always a sticky issue for the owners of chicken farms on a large scale or small scale. Every day, fresh chicken manure with the reek contaminates the environment of the farm and even the health of animals. So, how to deal with a huge amount of chicken manure?

It is an advisable way to turn them into organic fertilizer, because one can gain economic benefits from it. However, these owners, though conversant with the skills of feeding chicken, are devoid of the basic knowledge of fertilizer production. Then, how to make chicken manure fertilizer pellets?

Today, let us show you the answer!

How Are Chicken Manure Fertilizer Pellets Made?

Commonly speaking, there are over 10 steps in the process of turning your chicken litter into salable fertilizer pellets.


On average, the water content of fresh chicken manure is about 75%, which is much higher than needed. So, you need to reduce it to an ideal amount, about 35%, or you are prone to end up with failure in the next step: composting.

The process of dewatering animal manure


It is widely known that fresh chicken manure has various harmful materials, including bacteria, insect eggs and E.coli. To produce quality fertilizer pellets, it is necessary to eliminate these materials first. Then, what should you do? Compost your dried chicken manure!

According to statistics, the quality of harmful materials in your chicken manure shows a great slump after the process of composting. Consequently, your chicken manure is qualified to be used as a kind of safe powder fertilizer.

But, how to compost it? Just collect chicken litter and stock it in a long strip. Next, you need to turn it from time to time to aerate it. Of course, you can add straw and sawdust to your compost piles in order to adjust the C/N ration and water content of your chicken manure. In this way, you can speed up composting easily.

Indoor compost piles


Due to the sudden decline of water content, the external layer of your compost pile is prone to form a hard crust. You need to crush it completely, or the large pieces of your raw materials are an adverse factor for the process of granulating.


In order to increase the purity of your chicken litter fertilizer pellets, it is needed to screen useless materials, such as undigested grains, feathers and sand.

Do you want to produce high-quality fertilizer pellets that various nutrients and microorganisms abound? If you do, it is a good idea to mix your chicken litter with other raw materials in the right proportion.


After putting other raw materials in your chicken manure, you have to mix them thoroughly before the next step, or the quality of your chicken manure fertilizer pellets may become poor.


This step is so crucial that it has a huge influence on the output of your fertilizer products. Commonly, there are 2 methods of granulating, namely wet granulation and dry granulation. And they differ a lot in the way of granulating and the choice of machines. You can choose the one you like.

The Granulating Machines for Chicken Manure

Screening and Crushing

Do you want to buy a bag of fertilizer with misshape pellets or broken pellets? No, right? Hence, you need to screen defective chicken manure fertilizer pellets to make sure that every granules consumer buys is of high-quality. In addition, substandard granules can be crushed and re-granulated. Thus, you are able to maximize the utilization of your raw materials.

Drying and Cooling

It is a necessary process if you choose wet granulation. Theoretically, your fertilizer pellets are moist and sticky after granulation. If you pack them, they are likely to cake. Therefore, you need to dry them to make the moisture content drop. Of course, the process of cooling is needed after drying.

In the markets, slow release fertilizer pellets have rather high sales. Have you ever considered producing them? Actually, you can make them by coating your fertilizer granules with a layer of special substance, and the layer will slow the release of nutrients. More importantly, coated chicken manure fertilizer granules are able to endure long-time storage and transportation without causing caking problems.

That’s quite unrealistic, even for the owners of small-scale fertilizer plants! You need fertilizer making machines to help you. Then, which machine should you buy?.

To be honest, the 11 steps above are nothing but a brief description of each process of fertilizer production. According to every client’s needs, capital and plant area, the process flows of the production have something different. Accordingly, the machines you need vary.
