Product Description

Using Nesting Box Blend is easy: sprinkle approximately 1/4 cup into each nesting box atop straw, rice hulls, wood shavings or into the nesting material of your choice.  That's it. Our blend works to keep your chickens calm and free of mites, lice, and other ickies in the nesting box.

  • Our 5 oz bag = 12 to 14 applications.
  • Try the 1 lb bucket (40+ applications per bucket) that comes with a resealable lid and a carrying handle.  Recycle the pail and use to collect eggs!

Known Blend Benefits: (see REVIEW tab just above to learn more)

  • antiparasitic and antimicrobial
  • excellent pest repellent and anti-mite preventative
  • antifungal and antibacterial
  • anti-inflammatory, soothing, healing and aromatic
  • antiseptic and widly used against stress and anxiety 
  • mild decongestant (which can also kill air-borne germs in winter)

We recommend composting Nesting Box Blends along with bedding, coop and run manure/materials. So, if you keep nesting boxes clean and free of debris - (folks, we are talking about poop here) and free of bugs, you're flock will be comfortable, healthy and vibrant.  Contaminated nesting boxes are just bad, bad, bad.  Ick.

Nesting Box Blend™ is a Non-Toxic, Humane and Eco-Friendly blend used to ward off the creepy crawlies and bugs that bug your chickens. 

Our one of a kind original blend is 100% certified organic, effective and has a fresh, clean scent. 

Younger chickens often experience stress when they begin to lay eggs. Even older experienced layers can feel stress from time to time.  Allow this special and caring formulation to benefit laying hens of all ages – your eggs will be even more wonderful!

  • 100% Organic, Natural and Botanical
  • Non-Toxic, Clean Scent - Effective!

Made in the USA

INGREDIENTS: Organic Lavender, Organic Chamomile, Organic Peppermint, Organic Wormwood, Organic Tansy, Organic Eucalyptus Leaves, Organic Calendula (marigold petals), Organic Catnip and Organic Spearmint for a soothing and bug free egg laying experience.

    The nesting box blend is incredible. My 3 girls would not lay their eggs in the boxes. I put the nesting box blend in and now the nesting box is the only place they lay.

    Posted by Walter Radziszewski on 17th Jun 2014

    Love this product! I add it to the nesting box and the whole coop smells so fresh! It would be nice to offer it in larger amounts since I have many chickens and many nest boxes! Great product!!

    From Treats for Chickens: We took your advise to heart and now offer a 1lb pail!! Thanks for your suggestion, Walter.
