Which nesting filler/padding do you use - #straw or #shavings?
i'm a little split-personality when it comes to affirmatively taking a stand on one or the other. i switch it out every couple weeks when i get a hankering to change things up. ahnnd, right now this particular #nestingbox is all about the straw and laverne (who is a little irked to be 'on the set' so early today 💗😉) lays a beautiful pale green egg? ✅
i want my girls to be super comfy and thriving in the #healthiest living conditions i can provide + i figure it's a good trade off for the #eggs they lay for me, the #family and @treats4chickens employees🐓 🍳🌟 #nestingboxblend#certifiedorganic#honesty#toxicfree
A lot of people ask me if i clean my eggs before taking pictures.
the answer is no!
that's not to say that i never get an egg with some poo on it! i've also had them break in the box and dirty the others.
but a majority of the time, they look just like these ones.
every day, i pull out any nasty shavings in the boxes. i also add fresh shavings if needed.
i don't let the eggs pile up either. i try to collect them all, each day. i'm human and forget sometimes. if those eggs end up icky, they go to the dog or cat! no wasting!
the icing on the eggs, is @treats4chickens nesting box blend. 🦄
the one of a kind, original blend, is 100% certified organic.
it has antimicrobial, antifungal, antiseptic, and antiparasitic properties; to name a few.
even though it's all really for the chickies, you get something out of it too. it just makes egg pictures even prettier. 💁🏻 #kimberlylovest4c#itsmellslikeunicorns#revolutionaryroots
I love how @treats4chickens nesting box blend of dried flowers and herbs makes the hennie's coop smell like their own personal spa! 🛀 plus, it helps keep those nasty pests away. hops approves! 🐓🌿
You can’t tell by the sour smirk, but i know she approves. 😂
this is one my favorite chicken products!
it’s the nesting box blend from @treats4chickens. the very first time i ever opened a bag; i thought it smelled like unicorns. i mean, the smell is seriously that intoxicating. it’s gotta be what unicorns smell like! 🦄
this stuff truly is awesome. i’ve been using it for a couple years now. i sometimes wonder if i post about a product if people will think it’s just another typical instagram ad trying to push something on you.
that is not the case.
i genuinely love this product and actually use it on my own flock.
if i happen to strike up a conversation about chickens with someone, and that happens more than i’d like to admit. 🤦🏻♀️
it’s always one of the first things i recommend. 💗
plus, if it meets the heimdall seal of approval, then it’s gotta be legit. 🐓 #heimdall#gatekeeperofthecoop#revolutionaryroots

Its poll time! why, you ask? well, i've been on the road and at shows and there's a plenty handful of folks out there wanting chickens but their spouse/significant other is telling them that there isn't enough time in their schedules (or they are under the impression) .....that they are already overworked and overscheduled to raise chickens. so, please ladies and gents of our noble chicken keeping family ----->>> how many actual and physical minutes does it take you to do your 'chicken chores' during the weekdays and how many minutes does it take you to do your 'chicken chores' on what you consider your weekends? 🐓⏰✔️. so please, take just a few moments to comment below and share your experience. and tag your chicken friends so they can also give their input. thank you!! as a bonus you will be entered to win a full-sized #nestingboxblend. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖a little off topic bhuut it should be duly noted that i can always-always count on luanne twinkle blossom to be the first to taste test everything. everything. and since we continue to have an abundance of these mustard type weeds growing (#runreplacer is still too teeny tiny) in the yard and the garden (and since i slurped up my coffee so quickly this morning)..... it seemed fitting to serve them in my pretty little mug. #raisechickens#chickens#polltime#survey#howmuchtime#chickens#bestfriends#youropinioncounts#lovemymug@unurthwonder#growsomethinggreen@treats4chickens
