Wood Shavings | Bedding

Description

Reap the benefits of using untreated wood shavings.

Also ideal for raising chicks and in nest boxes. We recommend the use of wood shavings in a deep litter bed system. Shavings are better than wood chip or sawdust as shavings offer nice curls of timber rather than dust or chips. Deep litter is a term used to describe the floor of a chook house where loose dry material (wood shavings) are used. If mixed with chicken manure and additional dry litter as required, deep litter will not need removing for 6 to 12 months. If looked after, deep litter has no smell and ends up as beautiful compost (with no added weeds!) We do not recommend the use of hay or straw in a deep bed litter system. It is not as effective as wood shavings in absorbing moisture and carries possible mould and fungi spores which can affect the respiratory health of pets (and humans!)

Available in 4 sizes: small box size (courier), regular large bag (pick up or ship) 420L bale (courier), or bulk fadge (pick up or ship)

    Great product for horses

    I love this product, very good for horses comfort, especially in winter. Appletons are great to deal with with fast delivery, however, the courier is a bit spendy for me.

    Wonderful invention

    I love these shavings for my bantam chickens. They free range but sleep in pens with tiled floors covered in shavings. Its easy to keep the nesting boxes clean and I love using natural products for animals. They are exceptionally good layers because they always have clean shavings. The big bale lasts a long time because its tightly packed. Also I can store it outside without getting wet because it is well packed. Smells nice so I don't have a fly problem. Its costly getting it sent by currier, but I have used other products like sand and the shavings work out cheaper and after use they go in my veggie garden.
