ProBed Poultry Bedding – COLLECTION ONLY
Your choice of poultry bedding is crucial to keep your hens healthy. It is also good for you, as mucking out the coop with a bedding that does not serve you well is a chore. Probed is a great chicken bedding that can be used on the floor of the coop and also in the nest boxes. This particular product is easy to spread and also absorbs plenty of pooh. It is treated with antimicrobials so it has a rather nice smell for the chickens and you. Due to its short strands, it is easy to clean out later and at £10.00 for a large bale is also cost effective. Each bale will last the average chicken coop about 6-8 weekly cleans.
Chopped rape straw is the crushed and chopped stalks of the oil seed rape crop after harvesting. Whilst in the countryside you will probably have noticed fields full of yellow flowers in early summer. This is the oil seed rape crop which is used to make rapeseed oil for cooking. The nice thing about chopped rape straw is it doesn’t form a soggy mat like regular barley or wheat straw does. This is one of the reason we like it so much. We use this poultry bedding in all our coops and we highly recommend you do too.
You can use this in conjunction with bio-dri for its drying and disinfectant properties.
We do NOT recommend that you use rape straw bedding on the floor of your outside chicken run. In a potentially soggy situation our recommendation would be something like Easibed. Easibed is a chopped wood based bedding.
