My chickens love to nest down, they LOVE to snuggle and most of all they love, love, love to come into 'mummy's' big house to find something cuddly to bed down in, my feather duvet, the laundry pile, the sheepskin rug, the hall carpet and the absolute no.1 favourite item, my fur lined parka jacket. The parka in particular gets them so happy they cheep cheep like some kind of delighted radiation detector and won't move off it, even for a juicy worm. I was thinking, as I do a lot of hiking and wool and fleece stay pretty warm even when wet, would it be suitable material to use in the nesting boxes as it's clear they absolutely love the feel of soft fluffy fabric under their little butts? If I used something like cut up old jumpers from the thrift store they'd be as cheap to buy as bags of straw and could probably be thrown in the wash if not too dirty or wet? Has anyone tried this? Should I give it a go?
