If you were in Kentucky that MIGHT not have gone so well. Our grass here goes dormant in a winter like the last one...full out hibernates. With a lot of moisture pushing the manure down grass around here would like to wake up to that in the Spring. Could be it might burn the sod a little down south if put on too thick.

You won't burn southern sods with manure, just the opposite, the further south you go the warmer the average year round temperatures which means anaerobic activity in the soil rarely to never ceases, combine that with normally heavy winter rains and this action leaches nutrients from the soil much faster than it does in northern climates where everything pretty much goes dormant.

I have a guy keeps scattering manure on the edge of my hayfield. Kills it dead and it stays that way a long time. Poultry manure and he feels he is doing a good thing. I end up having to cut around it. Ticks me off but he is otherwise a great guy and keeps an eye on things for me.

I'd think that chicken litter would burn it of anything would. Pretty had to kill the roots of grass,no matter what kind it is.

Litter out of a layer house might but I've put up to 5 tons to the acre of broiler litter on pasture. Some grasses might not like it but Bermuda grass loves it.
