Hemlock vs pine shavings for bedding?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I can't seem to find pine shaving for bedding but my local farm supply has hemlock shavings, (actually 80% hemlock and 20% fir) They assure me that this is NOT the toxic type of hemlock and is perfectly safe for chickens. Any thoughts?

The poisonous Hemlock is an herbacous plant ....unrelated the the Hemlock tree.

You should be fine.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
