Great website and ease of ordering. Really found the online advice and videos helpful. Purchased the hardwood chips, sanatiser, dried herbs/flowers to add to bedding, sand for the chooks dust bath and other items, pleased with all. Swift delivery, very satisfied customer. This will be my go to site. Thank you Flyte so Fancy!
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.
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 .
Always prompt and efficient. Excellent products of good quality. Priced reasonably and in manageable bags
