Abstract: Composting of dead birds with cage layer manure (CLM) and low cost carbonaceous materials like 'coir pith waste' and 'sugarcane top' was carried out to study the feasibility of composting. Based on the C:N ratio of the ingredient, the compost recipes were formulated. Composting was carried out by sequential layering of dead birds with manure substrate and carbon source. Treatment mixture with CLM alone (T5) had higher pH value (8.48 and 8.44 during primary and secondary stage, respectively). But treatment mixture with dead birds (T1 and T2) had lower pH (7.45 and 7.85 for T1 and T2 during primary stage and 7.81 and 7.58 for T1 and T2 during secondary stage, respectively).
