About this deal
So I gave in and figured I’d give these aspen shaving nesting liners a try, and I cannot believe I did not buy them sooner! Though the product offers quality, it is highly expensive as well. Therefore, we best recommend this product either for a nesting box or for those conscious and wealthy hen owners who wish to nourish their hens with certified bedding produced according to the best standards!
DooKashi is 100% natural and clinically proven to eliminate odors at the microbial level without using any chemicals, perfumes, or masking agents. And the best part? If ingested, it is safe for both pets and humans! The pads are made of natural coco coir, a sustainable and biodegradable material that is also absorbent and odor-controlling.When I experimented with 10 or so different nesting box materials in my largest coop, the raffia bedding was the preferred type above all others. Every single hen would lay in the raffia bedding if it was available. These nesting pads are made from 100% biodegradable materials, making them environmentally friendly and sustainable. After use, they can be safely composted, providing an excellent source of organic fertilizer for gardening or farming. This feature makes these pads an excellent addition to any sustainable farming or gardening practices.
They are 13×13″ squares made of aspen shavings that have kraft paper on the bottom which helps hold all the shavings together. The robust design will last longer than many similar products on the market, offering unbeatable comfort levels all day long for your feathered friends. Eaton Pet and Pasture’s Premium Laying Hen Nesting Pads are a great buy for farmers and pet owners alike.Your hens need nesting material for their own satisfaction. Your hens have certain natural nesting behaviors they need to perform for their own psychological wellbeing, and they are unable to perform these behaviors in an empty box. Unfortunately, as I mentioned above, hens love to scratch in the nesting material and they will toss out most of the material likely before they even lay their egg. Their blend contains lemon verbena, calendula, chamomile, echinacea, lavender, lemon balm, organic spearmint, and rose buds/petals. All ingredients are organic and non-GMO and made in the U.S.A.
I’ve tested about 10 or so different materials in my nesting boxes, and my experiments align with the academic studies pretty well.Firstly, they are made of high-quality, durable materials that can withstand regular use and cleaning. Shredded paper is another option that is easy to clean and inexpensive. However, it may not provide as much insulation as other types of bedding.
