Frequently Asked Questions about Egg-e-bed Poultry Bedding
How do I use Egg-e-bed Poultry Bedding?

Egg-e-bed can be used everywhere in your poultry house or chicken coop, on the floor and in the nest boxes.

Lay out sufficient bedding that your birds can scratch, lay and rest. Provide enough bedding in the nest boxes for hens to arrange to their liking!

To keep the coop or house clean, regularly remove droppings and wet patches. Egg-e-bed can be composted at home and will rot down quickly to make a nutritious garden fertiliser.

Is Egg-e-bed fragranced?

We add eucalyptus fragrance to our Egg-e-ned poultry bedding during the baling process. Our customers often remark on how it makes the coop smell fresh and reduces the ‘chicken-y’ odour.

Is straw bedding more sustainable than wood shavings?

Unlike wood shavings, no trees are involved in the production of Egg-e-bed.

Pine trees can take between 25 – 30 years to reach harvestable size, whereas straw is produced every year, as a natural by-product of grain production. Egg-e-bed is made from wheat straw.

The structure of straw means that it is highly bio-degradable. It rots down quickly to form a nutritious compost that releases nitrogen and other nutrients back into the soil when it’s used as a fertiliser in your garden.

We source all our straw from local British farmers. This means we have full traceability on every bale that enters our production facility, and by using mainly local suppliers, we help to keep our carbon footprint as low as possible.

Can I keep Egg-e-bed bales outside?

Egg-e-bed poultry bedding bales are packed in a weatherproof covering but are not suitable for long term storage outside.

Once open, keep Egg-e-bed bales under cover, for example in a shed or garage.

Can I recycle the bale wrapping?

The wrapping for our Egg-e-bed bedding is made from LDPE (low density polyethylene) plastic and contains 30% recycled plastic.

You can recycle the bale wrapping where soft plastics are accepted. This includes many supermarkets and some local authority recycling centres.

Please do not recycle at home.
