Henlo, friends! It’s been an eventful couple of weeks with lots of fun chicken things going on. Of course, chicken chores are never really done. So, despite my busyness, I had to clean out the nesting boxes. Enter my newest obsession: My Favorite Chicken Nesting Pads with Aromatic Nesting Herbs!
I have something yucky to share. I’ve have dealt with mite infestations for two years in a row and I’m pretty much done with it. It’s awful to discover your chickens crawling with bugs, and the treatment is a real pain. This year, I have vowed to do all I can to prevent them. One of my ideas was to try anything that makes thoroughly cleaning the nesting boxes easier. Full disclosure: My Favorite Chicken contacted me and sent me these pads for free, to try out and review. But by the time they contacted me, I had already heard through the grapevine that these things were amazing.
One of the things that really attracted me to these pads were the fact that they have aromatic herbs infused right into them. I have already been using the herbal blend Nesting Medley (formerly known as Coop Confetti) from Scratch and Peck Feeds in my coop, so this made perfect sense. The herbs are known to ward off mites and lice!
