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. The hens will do the rest.
Continue to clean nesting boxes as you normally would. We recommend composting Nesting Box Blends along with bedding, coop and run manure/materials.
