Hi Guys,

 

Mijkol here (Melbourne AU) - just started out with the chickens and have 2 at the moment (Hy-Line) but I am wondering what is the best nesting material to use - currently I am using rabbit hutch material and they do not seem to have a problem with as yet but they are tending to flick it around a lot?

 

Can anyone recommend to good one to use?

 

Thanks

Fist lets :welcome

If you can get some hay or straw, It makes ideal nesting.    If those are hard to get,in your area, then can you get some grass clippings and dry them int hay yourself???

WISHING YOU BEST.:thumbsup

There's quite a variety of materials members use for bedding and nesting boxes. You might find it helpful to read this article comparing the various materials to see which one may work best for you (a lot of times it comes down to cost & what's easiest to get):
