Agreed. As I noted chicken manure has urine in it. "[url=https://www.elmhurst.edu/~chm/vchembook/633ureacycle.html]Animals such as birds and reptiles which must conserve water, excrete nitrogen as uric acid as a solid mixed with very small amounts of water[/url]."
Like chickens sheep/goat/deer and rabbit are made to conserve water. Unlike chickens they urinate and defecate from dual outlets rather than just one, thus their feces are dry. As such they tend to stay as pellets if they aren't composted or kept heavily watered for an extended period of time, thus allowing micro-composting and leaching to take place.
Either way, their manure is extremely rich in organic matter and, as such, is hot.
