Not only are the shavings harvested through sustainable business practices, but our shavings go through a lengthy and unique process to ensure the very best for your flock. First, the shavings are heated up to 800° F and screened multiple times to keep the bedding free of mold spores, E. Coli, Salmonella, and dust. Then, specially developed machines compress and pack the bales, eliminating any potential contamination from outside sources. Plus, these shavings are low-moisture, which is why our bedding is ultra-absorbent. Whether you raise champion show birds, or you keep a few pet hens for tasty eggs, make sure you use Fresh Flakes premium poultry bedding for the happiest, healthiest coop!
