Different types of natural soil have different properties due to the color, composition, texture and consistency. The study was conducted to observe the decomposition stages and the decomposition rate of the samples. In order to investigate soil type effect on decomposition, a study had been conducted by using the head part of fresh domestic chicken carcass (Gallus gal/us) buried in four different types of soil. Types of soil chosen were laterite, sandy, clay and peat soil. In this study, the soil temperature, relative humidity, moisture, light intensity, pH and rainfall was also observed. The results show that the most rapid decomposition process was in laterite soil while clay soil shows the slowest decomposition. The result also shows that all the physical factors are independent with one another.
