If you're a backyard chicken owner, you know that providing your birds with the right bedding is essential for their health and well-being. One option that you might be considering is hemp bedding. Here are the top five reasons why you might want to use hemp bedding with your backyard chickens. We made the switch to hemp bedding in 2018 and it was the biggest game changer when it comes to backyard chicken keeping.

1. Hemp bedding is environmentally friendly. Hemp is a sustainable and eco-friendly crop that requires little water and pesticides to grow. Using hemp bedding helps to reduce your environmental impact and support sustainable agriculture.

3. Hemp bedding is comfortable for your chickens. Chickens need a comfortable and dry place to sleep, and hemp bedding can provide that. It is soft and fluffy, which can make your chickens more comfortable as they rest.
