The best way to recycle poultry waste is to change it into biofertilizer. The poultry industries are increasing day by day due to its availability of lean meat which has low quantities of cholesterol. So, the increase in market of poultry products also causes the increase in growth of waste pollutions. Magnification in the demand of poultry products have led to fast and concentrated growth of the poultry industry, which deliver superabundant manure supplies. poultry waste is one of the best organic manure and also much valuable resource. At present the poultry farming supply vital sprig of animal protein and also the most freely reared livestock species amongst the all livestock species. In spite of its huge benefits like production of meat, eggs and job generations it frequently creates some environmental risks which are not good to both human and animal, because the poultry farming is the main cause of nasty smell, water ,soil, and air pollution. Whether the waste of poultry such as chicken feathers, chicken poop and hatchery wastes are not used in an appropriate form then they cause immense pollution. Being good sources of keratin proteins and amino acids the chicken feathers can be modified into useful products such as poultry manure which can be used as organic fertilizer, the other products which can be made by it are biodegradable plastic, feather meal and bio diesel. Out of all animal manures like vermicompost, horse, cow or steer manure, the nutritional value of poultry manure is high because it has highest amount of nitrogen, phosphorous & potassium. Soil microorganisms have potential to convert poultry farming waste into ecofriendly clean fertilizer which increases the productions of agricultural products.
