I would just add a part of it. Not sure how big your bed is, but chicken manure is to be used sparingly even composted, it sounds like you wanted to dump a lot. A 1 cm layer (and then mixed) would be a good amount I think for your case, maybe even less. Teas don't contain all the benefit of the manure, only the soluble parts which most often is nitrogen. I have used fresh chicken manure before, as long as you use it wisely (most problematic is to include too much in the beginning, so small plants which are sensitive don't develop well) it's a good fertilizer. I used to mostly add it mid season, but partly incorporating it in the soil around the plants.
