Well to carry the thread to a logical end, the OP might have thought EITHER
group might have some good insights to his question. I.E. garden fertilizer = chicken shit or fish or fish in chicken shit = can a chicken
As for which stinks worse, I'd say neither. Your unkind and uncalled for
reply stinks worse than both choices.

I do it all the time. Our pond has a tonof Bream in it, and on
occassion I will set the fish trap and catch a mess of em to help thin
em out. I used to pitch them way back in the woods, but since last
year I dump a mess of em in with my chickens, and in no time they are
gone. I just finished dumping a bunch in about 2 hours ago. Free

Chickens will eat practically anything that doesn't eat them first.
I've seen them chase down a mouse and swallow it whole, head first!
The thing about feeding them fish.. give them to them, let them have
their way with them for a couple hours, and then anything left, put it
in the ground. Remember the tale of Squanto and the pilgrims, he
taught them to bury a fish below the hills they planted their corn in.
It's a good high nitrogen fertilizer.
If you have time to toss the fish into a heat proof container with a
bit of water and a lid and put it on the barbecue grill or a fire of
any sort.. steam the fish first and the chickens will likely eat them
bones and all as they'll be softer. It'll also kill any possible
parasites the fish might have. Fish are intermediary hosts for liver
flukes, and other things .. which is why I do not eat raw fish. No
sushi for MEEEEEEE!!! (Yes, I know not all fish are hosts..but I
don't know where they are, or what kind they are.. just thought I'd
say that to stop the bandwagon before it got to those inclined to
climb on! )
