Hardwood Woodchip for Poultry Runs

Sale price£13.45

Hardwood Wood Chips for use as a surface in poultry runs. Sustainable, eco-friendly, and natural; this is the answer to 'what do I put on the floor of my chicken run'?

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. See Specifications for volume/weight/particle size.

You can watch our Video on Changing your Hardwood Woodchip

If your hens have a fixed run, and they are scratching at bare earth or splashing about in the mud, sprinkle a good layer of hardwood woodchip in their run and you will have happy hens!

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 ancestral roots from the jungle. We have found this woodchip is an absolutely perfect surface for chicken runs.

Hints & Tips:

For getting the best out of your Woodchip see Using Hardwood Woodchip in your Chicken Run

Woodchip is often damp when bagged so the weight of the bag will vary (sometimes by up to 5kg), however, the bags are 50 litre bags so the volume in the bags is always the same no matter how wet.

If ordering large quantities of woodchip to store for later use (very economical if you have the space to store them), then we do advise making sure there are air holes in the stored bags to allow moisture to escape and prevent sweating inside the plastic bags, which can produce (harmless) moulds.

Good product

My hens spend hours foraging in these woodchips, they are always clean and in good condition and delivered when promised. I buy them regularly as I top up the pen twice a year in spring and autumn. I would recommend buying them from Flyte So Fancy.

Hard wood chips

Excellent product and fast delivery. I would recommend and will continue to buy.

Best wood chips I’ve bought

I can highly recommend these wood chips due to their small, uniform size. Other brands I’ve tried have been much coarser and not dust free. Also, the bags are not too heavy to carry.

Fantastic keeping my hens feet clean and dry

I love the chips as they enable me to keep the run area fairly clean and dry despite our inclement weather! I change it over 2-3 times a year and add new when needed. It doesn’t rot like other chipping’s and if it gets too muddy I can reuse them in my allotment paths. So a win win! Highly recommend them.

Great Quality

Very happy chickens once the new chips were placed in their run. Good quality, fresh woody smell.
