The Nitty Gritty on Nesting Box Blend®
TIPS FOR USE
Here's what you need to do: Sprinkle about ¼ cup (about a palm full) Treats for Chickens Nesting Box Blend into each nesting box and in and around the coop enclosure atop straw, rice hulls, wood shavings or into the nesting material of your choice. And your flock will take care of the rest.
From Treats for Chickens experience, at least weekly scatter in the coop and/or coop’s nesting boxes in-between cleanings to help maintain your flock's fresh nesting environment and keep the ladies egg laying in their nesting boxes. Our healthy herbal nesting blend can be composted along with bedding, coop and run manure or other materials.
Is Nesting Box Blend chick age appropriate? Sure is. Start healthy hygiene habits at a young age, even without a mom hen on standby. Sprinkle a scoop of these nesting herbs on top of dirt and into a small tray, chicks will dive in. It’s adorable to watch so keep your camera handy.
General Pro-Chick Tip: be sure that baby chicks under two weeks of age always have access to grit so they can properly digest their food.

Reviews From Pet Chicken Parents
As always, thank you for sharing! Treats for Chickens’ chicken parents rely on your honest feedback. -Dawn 🧡
I love them & I think the chickens do too! I sprinkle some in each nesting box & in the coop itself. They smell wonderful. I will definitely continue using them.
The Nesting Box Blend is my favorite. I use it in all the nesting boxes plus the coop floor in general. It is so clean and refreshing in the coop. The chickens seem to like it as much as I do.
I’m so glad I finally found a brand I can trust. This Nesting Box Blend helps freshen my nesting boxes and I know there is nothing harmful for my chickens. Now…please make a chicken FEED!
We love this company and all of the products we use monthly: nesting boxes blend, chicken crack and seasonally of molt mender and a few others! Great customer service!
We have used this for about 3 years now and the chickens REALLY like the Nest Box Blend. They, all 8 of them, follow you In to the coop when we put in in the nest boxes and scatter some around the coop. Have to admit, it does smell pretty good. We'll keep using it.
