Depends on what you grow. Too much on peppers and all you get are leaves. Too much on tomatoes and you get rot.Poultry manure has roughly twice the nitrogen which can "burn plants. So wouldn't only using half as much be about the same as the full measure of cattle manure?
And yes, those chickens are going to be a big problem on your garden yield. They eat the bugs but peck a hole in everything you grow. Ask her to round them back up and get some Guinee hens instead. They eat the bugs but don't touch vegetables.
