See our Blog posts about How to get the most out of your Hardwood Woodchip

The chickens love it; it keeps them clean, gives them something to scratch in all day long, washes through with the rain and only needs changing perhaps once or twice a year. Much better than bark, which we do not advise because of the mould spores, and bark does become slushy after the rain; softwood would degrade very quickly and just work its way into the mud; hardwood woodchip though will just sit on top of the ground and can easily withstand all weathers; even though it is a hardwood it is still soft enough for the birds and best replicates the surfaces of their ancestoral roots from the jungle. We have found this woodchip is an absolutely perfect surface for chickens.

Flyte so Fancy Hard Wood Chips have a nominal 10-40mm particle size and conforms to British standard BS:EN1177:1998. They do not contain recycled wood waste or bark mulch. These Handy Bags weigh approx 12-17kg, depending on moisture content of woodchips i.e. the season. Estimate one sack will cover approx 10 sq ft with a 2"-3" depth (To clarify: 10 sq feet is an area of 10ft by 1ft, or approx 1metre by 1metre). To calculate your run area:- length times width divided by 10 equals the number of bags you need. So a 9ft x 9ft run would need 8 bags (9 x 9 = 81, divide by 10 = 8).

Note: Delivery for a single bag to most UK destiantions is £6.97; 2 bag delivery is £8.92; 3 bags is £13.20 and so on. See option below for 10+ bags delivered by pallet where delivery is from £39.95 for as many as you need on one pallet.
