|I have 2 places and one place uses Chicken manure and the other place uses Horse manure and hay. I'm just curious which kind is good or it does not matter.
They are both organic compost.

|I would lean toward the chicken manure. Horse manure is supposed to be one of the most alkaline, which is fine if you're in the east, but if you're out west I'd favor other types.|

|Best kind is the kind you make yourself. Nothing like making compost and then adding it to your soil. Hopefully you have the space and the materials available to make your own.

|One potential problem with Horse manure is that the grass they ate might have systemic herbicide chemicals that will persist to kill your plants later.|
