    As you will pretty much all know I'm still new to all of this. When we fetched our girls we also bought some essentials , ACV, drinker, mite powder etc and White Horse Bedding. The bedding seems really good, it works like a clumping cat litter and is really easy to clean. I clean out daily and change completely every Saturday, I'm starting to get low on the White Horse Bedding and just wondered if anyone else had experience with the same product versus anything similar. Cost isn't a huge issue as I only have 4 girls and a reasonably small coop. Thanks in advance .....

    Hmmm...I don't know what white horse bedding is...I'm in USA and over here most of us use wood shavings (Pine or Ceder), straw or sand as bedding for our chickens.

    White horse bedding comes as pellets but you add some water and they break down to a sort of saw dust but without the dust, if that makes sense. As it becomes littered it clumps together and is really easy to clean. I only have 4 girls and a small coop so not sure how well it work on a large scale.

    It sounds like cat litter we used to use for our old Gingerbits! Good idea in a chicken run though.
