Sowing grass seed on chicken area ??

Hi All just looking for some advice . I recently got rid of our chickens after 5/6 years of keeping them and   I have just rotovated over the area they used for scratching around in (100sqm ) with the intension of sowning a new area of grass , do you think I would need to apply fertilizer when I sow the grass when the soil heats up or would the years of chicken dung have already done that for me  🤔🤔? ??? Thanks in advance 😀

    I can't imagine you'll need any.

    I did just that,  I have never seen grass so beautiful, it was like a deep sea green. No fertiliser, just from the chickens.
