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.
Flyte so Fancy Woodchips have a nominal 10-40mm particle size and conforms to British standard BS:EN1177:2008. They do not contain recycled wood waste or bark mulch.
Hardwood Woodchips are produced from sustainably harvested British forests. FSC Certificate No CU-COC-806457. The product shall have been tested in accordance with the requirements of BS4790:1987 for fire resistance and be classified as having low potential to burn.
These Handy Bags weigh approx 15-20kg, depending on the moisture content of woodchips at the time of bagging i.e. the seasonal variations. By volume approx. 50 Litres.
Estimate one sack will cover approx 10 sq ft with a 2-3in depth (To clarify: 10 sq feet is an area of 10ft by 1ft or 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).

We’ve had some very wet weather in Scotland recently and these hardwood woodchips are excellent. They’ve turned a very muddy hen run which was getting a bit smelly (despite there being a cover on our hen run and our hens being free to roam) into an area that’s pleasant for the hens, who seem to love it and good to walk on. All smelliness has also disappeared. Delivery was exellent and the product is very easy to put down.
The chippings arrived by pallet and I was kept informed of the date. A good service
