HEMP BEDDING FOR CHICKENS: Why Hemp?

Hemp bedding is an all-around superior product to traditional chicken options like wood chips. Hemp has a long list of benefits like enhanced comfort, incredible absorbency, decreased dust and so much more.    

HEMP IS VERY ABSORBENT: 

When it comes to raising chickens, providing a dry resting environment is crucial. Damp bedding encourages bacterial growth like Salmonella and Coccidiosis. Hemp has natural anti-microbial properties, as well. Combined with the enhanced absorbency, hemp is the safest option for your chickens. 

HEMP PRODUCES LITTLE TO NO DUST:

Hemp bedding combines the dust-free benefit of wood chips with an amazing comfortability aspect. With hemp animal bedding, there is no need to sacrifice safety and comfort for a practical bedding option. Hemp animal bedding in your nest box provides eggs a soft landing spot.

HEMP KEEPS CHICKEN ODORS AT BAY 

Hemp animal bedding traps ammonia fumes and other unwanted odors to provide your chickens an odor-free environment. Hemp has a natural insect repellent quality that will help keep mites and other unwanted pests away.

HEMP IS A COST-EFFECTIVE OPTION.

Hemp animal bedding lasts longer and doesn't need changed out as frequently. Hemp also has a high thermal rating which will keep your chickens warmer with less electricity.
