If we can make horse and cow manure into fertilizer, we can certainly do the same with chicken waste and, while we’re at it, help protect our waterways. Of course, that means the poultry industry will have to collect it, but they could profit by selling it to processors. Virginia needs to look at the possibilities and develop regulations that encourage the reuse of chicken waste.
