Reviews From Pet Chicken Parents
As always, thank you for sharing! Treats for Chickens’ chicken parents rely on your honest feedback. -Dawn 🧡
The chicks get excited when I sprinkle “New Chicks In Town” in and around their food. Their foraging and scratching kicks in! I also feel good knowing they’re getting herbs and flowers in their diet and the brooder is getting a smell refresh. Great product!
When I read this product could help reduce the smell of a brooder I was skeptical but am so glad we tried it. Holy heck, ya’ll! The chicks are so happy and my nose burns less walking by the brooder of 43 chicks!!!
We got 3 chicks a few weeks ago and the herbal New Chicks in Town is amazing! Keeps their brooder smelling fresh and clean and they love to forage through the shavings to eat any pieces they can find! I definitely will be ordering more products!
Smells super good and my chicks love it!!
When I added this to their food the all pushed themselves in to get some so fun to watch
