Aubiose Hemp Bedding is derived from the soft centre of the hemp plant.
20kg compressed bale. Used widely for Horse bedding in stables because it is so absorbent but also makes terrific bedding for chickens.
Aubiose is organically grown, cultivated without pesticides, fungicides, herbicides or insecticides and absorbs up to 12 times more liquid than straw and 4 times more than shavings.
It has great absorbency and natural fly repellent qualities. Perfect as poultry bedding but also great for rabbits and guinea pigs.
Aubiose has a spongy texture, which traps odours and is unattractive to flies and parasites. It quickly decomposes in to a highly organic fertiliser and is ideal for gardeners, nurseries, fields and mushroom growing.
A completely sustainable resource. Use as you would woodshavings, on the floor of the hen house and in the nesting boxes, you will find this lasts much longer and will help to contain the ammonia smell that hens produce.
Aubiose comes in heavy-duty plastic bags. As a very rough guide, one 20kg bale would cover 2 square metres to a depth of 10cm.
Delivery: This is a very large 20kg bale, delivery charge for one bale is £8.80 to most parts of the UK but will be pro-rata cheaper with quantity e.g 2 bales delivery charge is £12.96.
Our Standard delivery is next working day, if ordered before 2pm (excl. weekends and bank holidays). Please note this may not always be possible at busy times e.g. after weekends and bank holidays.
NOTE JAN 2021: Due to changes in courier stipulations this item is now too large to send outside mainland UK or Scottish Highlands.
our other birds love it too! We use this, largely indoors, for some of our birds when it's more appropriate than say Easibed (shredded woodchip) or hardwood chippings. The advantage is that it absorbs odours better than most beddings, and doesn't need replacing as quickly.
great service and really good bedding
I have always used hemp bedding and it is the best for my hens and ducks.
Fantastic for floor covering in my chicken coup and the girls like it in their nesting boxes - happy hens
Excellent nest box material for small flock when mixed with hay.
