Hints & Tips:
For getting the best out of your Woodchip see Using Hardwood Woodchip in your Chicken Run
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).

The woodchip keeps the runs - and the chicks and their eggs! - so much cleaner. The hens love scratching around among the pieces of wood; it keeps them occupied all day long.
Thank you very much for your review, glad to hear it works well for the chooks.
They are the only supplier of hardwood chips I could find on-line who supplied it in bags. The discount on larger quantities is good. An excellent description of how delivery would take place. Delivered in 4 days and as described. They are exactly what I needed for pathways in my large garden. Comes in easily handled bags. Excellent quality/
Easy to order, email and call to agree delivery date. Delivered as agreed. Just the job for my hens 😀
The ordering process was simple and an order confirmation email was sent the next day confirming delivery date. I asked this to be changed which was no problem and the delivery was made on the day we agreed.
I am very happy with the service I received The wood chip arrived on a pallet and was very well packed and protected. The chickens are now enjoying their new run covering and are very busy scratching through it.
Excellent friendly service as always Came back to this product after trying cheaper alternatives which did not last as long so a false economy!
