    So really it depends on what boiler you have. I had thought of using them in an ordinary pellet boiler mixed up with wood pellets to help it burn.
    I also have access to huge amounts of stable manure from a stud farm while is a bit more inert. I was hoping to mix it up with the chicken litter to make a better burning pellet. It's a bit experimental but very interesting work. It's just the access to the poultry stuff is very tempting because it's delivered foc. I also could press it into a larger briquette for a wood burning stove 80mm in diameter. This would replace actual wooden logs with are getting quite expensive

    You may find another problem with burning poultry waste. Very often this type of waste will burn the bottom out of the boiler. You would need to put it in a mix of other waste. I worked with Uniconfort year ago and they ended up putting hardened bottoms in the boilers to account for the use of poultry waste.
