Saw dust, hay, poultry litter, dead poultry, moulas, perforated plastic tubes and plastic covers were used to make six composting piles using effective microorganisms (EM). For getting the best, speed, and efficient procedure, different methods of composting were compared. The groups were distributed in different ways from each other, i.e. hay was used only in some group, moulas was added in another group of experiments. Regular observation to the experiment was carried out regarding temperature, acidity and odors. The finding revealed that the groups of saw dust mixed with EM and moulas had good results of temperature, acidity, rapid disintegration and breakup poultry carcasses. Also, the experiment proved that the sole application of fresh saw dust produced rapid and best composting process in comparing with other groups.
