Making preparations for the colder months ahead

As the year turns, I need to start making some preparations for the colder winter months ahead and the fact that the flocks will be spending much more time indoors. One of the key aspects of the chickens’ indoor space during the winter is the use of good quality litter.

Customer Reviews


  1. Rebecca Westland

    I’ve learnt that chickens love a clean, fresh bed! When I came across and was recommended to try Dengie Fresh Bed for Chickens by my local farm shop, I was sceptical, but it’s absolutely fantastic. The straw is short and fluffy; the pine smell is amazing too! Every morning, I remove all poo and fluff it up making a cosy bed ready for the next lay. My ladies love it!

  2. Nene Barn Hens

    I’m often asked what bedding I use, which is Fresh Bed for Chickens from Dengie, It’s dust-extracted to help reduce respiratory problems and contains pine oil which makes the coop smell delightful! Furthermore, purchasing this bedding helps support the amazing work of the British Hen Welfare Trust.

  3. Adrian

    I have used this product for years. We have not had any health problems with our chickens and they love making “nests” to lay their eggs. Cleaning out is easy. Buying direct is easiest and best value as there are no local stockists near us.

  4. Henry Louth

    Great bedding, it smells lovely. I wanted to know if it could be used for day chicks and it can. Mine love it.
