Details

We recommend you place chicken chips in the Hen pen at approximately 10cm thickness — ideally on top of netting that is pinned down to stop the chips sinking into the mud — this provides the Hens with a clean environment and safety for yourself as you negotiate the Hen pen, with all those fragile chicks around you.

Bark

Our chicken chips are clean hardwood chips without the bark.  Bark is a mulch designed to sponge up water and hold it.  This is the exact opposite of what we want!  In addition, bark gives off aspergillosis spores — dangerous fungus spores which spread infection, which are obviously harmful to both chickens and humans.  So for healthier cleaner environment, never use bark but why not use our specifically designed hardwood chicken chips instead?
