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 blend is all natural, effective and has a fresh, clean scent.
Add Nesting Box Blends™ to nesting boxes during regular cleanings to keep your chickens calm and free of mites, lice etc. Good news - Nesting Box Blends™ can be used along with Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth. 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.
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!

From our fan Carolyn:
"Sprinkling those fragrant dried herbs in the "girls" nest-box wood shavings made me feel like a fairy godmother delicately spreading fairy dust in the coop world of soft clucks and feathery friends.
Fancy hotels may sprinkle rose petals and chocolate patties on beds soft and wide, but my happy hens have got it made with Treats For Chickens Nesting Box Blend!!!
Nest box is pristine, fragrant and a picture of hospitality as it cradles each perfect egg til I come collect it."

I have no idea if this product actually repels pests as intended. What I do know is that it smells divine. If a hen is broody and hanging out in the nesting box, at least she's wallowing in a lovely natural scent and hopefully also keeping the pests at bay. As to the other comments here regarding the price: A little bit of the Nesting Box Blend goes a long way. I clean my coop weekly and have two nesting boxes. One package has lasted me several months, which seems like a pretty good investment -- especially in the winter months when the ladies spend more time inside.

I have been using this product in the nesting boxes for a while now and have had no issues with pests. Plus, it makes the coop smell amazing!

This product is wonderful. My chickens loved it! I know this because they told me so, ha ha. I cleaned their nesting area and put a little down and then their shredded paper. My little hens junped up and snuggled in and seemed very happy. Thanks so much for making my hens happy! and as a bonus I don't have to worry about bugs and bad stuff with this product because it takes care of that also.

My chickens love it. They like to lay eggs in the nesting box after I put in the nesting box mix. I like the nice smell that makes the chicken area fresh.

I love the Nesting Box Blend! I clean the coop and sprinkle some on top of the shavings in the nesting boxes, and it smells wonderful! A little expensive - but that's why the call it TREATS for Chickens! ❤

I use this all the time to add to my hens' nests. It smells so good and seems to actually help to soothe the hens while laying. It does help to keep the bug population down too. I sprinkle it in their nests once a week or more and when I change out their nesting materials. I highly recommend this product! I do wish you could get the price down a little though!

I have not used any nesting products except for some diotunaceous earth in my ladies' nesting boxes. But having used the nesting box blend for the past 6 months all I can say is that it is very pleasant walking into their barn. It seems to always smell fresh and clean. The hens are laying more consistenly(yep they are) and I know that the nesting materials contributes to their good health.
I just sprinkle a little in each box and it lasts for quite a while. I love it my ladies love it
