Bathing material

First time I've purchased this. I was hopeful it would be dry when opened but no luck. Seems to take ages to dry out.

Play bark and Play sand

Faultless service. First time using bark and sand
My girls gave the bark their seal of approval straight away. The sand was damp but that's to be expected as most bagged sand is. I'm sure they will use it once it drys out.

Play sand

Needs to dry out before the chickens can dust bath but wherever l buy the sand from other outlets it always is damp .When it drys out it will be good and it is a very fine sand. Excellent service from Flyte so fancy .
