Hemp Coop Bedding
With chicken bedding, you want absorbency, ease of cleanup, and of course you want the chickens to feel comfy in it. Some things you don't want are dust, pesticides, moisture, and smell.
After experimenting with a few different materials (traditional pine, recycled coffee grounds, hay) our favorite so far is this organic hemp bedding. It generally stays in place, absorbs moisture and smells, is fairly easy to clean up, is compostable, and the chickens seem to like it. It's a little pricier than your average pine shavings but it also keeps the coop dryer and less smelly--hooray!
