HempBed-E® Poultry Bedding is chopped hemp bedding for poultry with added eucalyptus - compressed 15kg bale* available only from Flyte so Fancy.
HempBed-E Bedding makes cleaning so much easier, less frequently needed because it goes further, and leaves the chicken coop smelling fresh and healthy.
Chopped hemp is a natural, dust-free, quick-to-compost, sustainable, eco-friendly product. It has odour-eating properties, is highly absorbent and, with HempBed-E, has an added boost - Eucalyptus has been added to the mix and offer a natural way of freshening up your hen house.
Eucalyptus is well known as a mild decongestant, which can also kill air-borne germs in winter, is anti-bacterial, and much of our research points to its anti-mite properties as well.
HempBed-E Bedding absorbs up to 12 times more liquid than straw and 4 times more than shavings. It is used widely as bedding for horses because of its great absorbency and natural fly-repellent qualities.
HempBed-E cannot be used for Guinea Pigs or other Cavies as Eucalyptus is toxic to them.
*approx weight when bagged. Available as single bales or pallet quantities of 10 bales or 20 bales.
Please Note: Hemp is a naturally grown fibrous plant so there will be variations of texture and colour with the seasons depending on when it was harvested. This is perfectly natural and does not make it any more or less effective.
Our Standard delivery is next working day to most of mainland UK if ordered before 2pm (excl. weekends and bank holidays).

Very happy with this hemp bedding and won't use anything else now for the chicken coop. The smell is wonderful: fresh and clean. It's is highly absorbent - I use a deep litter method and it's easy to clean off the top layer and sprinkle fresh bedding. I've noticed that, unlike previous bedding choices, this does absorb all the muck very well, I'm not having to scrape down to the floor any more. A 15kg bag lasts me a good couple months or more, and I have a large coop for several chickens. Would recommend this highly for anyone looking to replace straw/woodchip with something fresher. Not sure about whether this actually keeps rodents and critters away - I haven't noticed any other than spiders and the odd moth (and they're always welcome!).
Very good bedding. Easy for keeping clean and keeps the huts fresh.
I have used Flyte So Fancy Hemp Bedding for quite a few years now and wouldn't use anything else. The Hemp bedding is clean and fresh and the eucalyptus smells lovely. My hen house is always dry and fresh smelling, the hemp dries up all the mess overnight and all the poo is easly clean as it dries it in clumps!. Would recommend it for any chicken person
I love this bedding! It smells gorgeous and keeps my hen coop nice and fresh. Would highly recommend.
Amazing bedding smells amazing absorbent, will def be buying again, always used dengie bedding but this is so much better.
