What is hemp bedding?
Hemp bedding is a highly absorbent bedding material that will put your traditional pine shavings to shame! Hemp bedding is made from what is known as the “hurd” of the plant. The hurd is the stalk of the plant and is mulched down into a straw type of bedding. The bedding is extremely low dust and breaks down faster in any compost bin. Your chickens will love how soft the hemp bedding is and you'll love how easy the hemp bedding is to clean!
This 6.6 package of hemp bedding will provide about an inch covering on a floor that measures 33" by 29".
Hemp bedding benefits:

- Unlike some pine shavings and straw, hemp bedding has minimal dust
- More comfortable and softer, so chickens are more likely to nest
- High thermal rating, keeping chickens warmer while they sleep
