Bed-Down Crumbledown Poultry Bedding

Bed-Down Crumbledown draws moisture and dirt away from the surface of the litter resulting in much cleaner eggs.

The natural properties of Bed-Down Crumbledown discourages mites and significantly reduces ammonia by up to 60% compared to standard woodshavings. Our heat treatment process also virtually eliminates moulds, spores and bacteria creating a healthy fresh living environment in the coop and nest boxes.

Bed-Down Crumble Down is eco-friendly and biodegradable and makes a good quality fertiliser for your garden.

How to make the perfect Absorb bed

1 x 30 litre bag of Crumbledown will cover approximately 1.5m sq (16 ft sq). Spread an even layer over the coop floor. Sprinkle the pellet surface, using a watering can with a “rose” attachment to activate expansion of the pellets.

Leave the litter for 20 minutes while the pellets absorb the water. Remaining whole pellets will naturally breakdown to a soft bed. Using a scoop, remove solids and any wet patches regularly, topping up with crumbledown as necessary.

Empty and clean out coop as required.
