Hi, I would like to purchase a 250kg bag of green rubber chippings for my chicken run. Can I just check that the coloured chippings are suitable for chickens. Thank you, Louise.
Dear Louise,
Yes they would be suitable, however you may want to consider purchase non-coloured rubber chippings. Give me a ring if you want to go ahead?
Kind Regards
Hi Colin
I just wanted to let you know that we managed with the chippings we had, we just spread them a bit thinner in some areas. They look really good, I'm so pleased with them and the chickens seem to be too, everyone who has visited has commented on them so I think I may be able to put some more custom your way. Thank you again for all your help and advice, I have attached some photos of our chicken area for you.
Thank you again,
L Simms.

We recently bought rubber chippings for our chicken run.  We've been extremely impressed with both the service and product.

As promised here are some before and after photos should you wish to use them. We've noticed that when it rain they clean up very well. Plus the lovely rubber scent means the chicken run never smells!! The chickens really seem to like them too.

Kind Regards

Hi Brian
I wish you all the best with your product, we bought the chippings to reduce the mud bath and hopefully to enrich the chickens comfort.

Dear Jayne
thanks for the pics, they do look like a lot of very spoilt chickens to me. You should be getting nothing but double yokers from them. I'm glad you like our product.

Many thanks

"I've had rubber chippings down in my run for nearly 3 years now. Initially, you cover the earth floor with permeable landscaping fabric, the kind used for weed control, in wide widths, and peg it down well round the edges. Then just pour on the rubber chippings, good recycling. Instant transformation, no more mud, ever!! The chips are always soft and warm to the chickens' feet, even on frosty days in winter, and their feet always stay dry and don't get muddy, because the membrane underneath prevents them from digging into the earth, although they can and do spend time scratching up the chippings to see what they can find. A handful of grain in the afternoons keeps them happy for a long time! The chips are nice and warm and comfortable and the birds often like to lie around on them for little naps."
