that's pretty funny, as a Northerner I am sold on a lot of southern food classics though, love grits, chicken-fried steak, etc. They don't know how to pronounce maple syrup though!
Chicken waste and chicken feather meal are the top 2 ingredients in all the Espoma fertilizers. Apparently there is a huge amount of chicken waste going from industrial production into the Chesapeake Bay ocean. Espoma and Scott's are only using a small fraction of it on fertilizer. The more Espoma people use, the less waste goes into the ocean. Plant-tone is great stuff for outdoor use, or when you need to cover the whole lawn. I like to play with the boutique fertilizers for cannabis but truthfully Espoma works really well too.
Chicken shit is available to plants quickly, feather meal is slow-release, so they combine the two of them.
