Patented poultry bedding made from PittMoss fibers

A next-generation chicken bedding that lasts 4x longer than shavings while boasting a number of other unique benefits to keep your chicken coop cleaner and your flock healthier! The available carbon in the material locks down moisture and ammonia smells, ensuring a dry, ammonia-safe environment. In our first commercial trial, the user noticed a significant difference in the health of his chickens. The soft, fluffy material left the birds’ feet essentially free of sores and ulcers, a problem commonly incurred from using wood shavings or other types of chicken litter. Another notable result was the increase in size, about ¼ to ½ pound increase per bird. For more detailed results, photos, and tips from the Mountainside Organics trial, we welcome you to check out our blog. On a smaller scale, another user found the product to be an effective bedding alternative for her backyard flock of about 30 laying hens. The birds did not seem interested in eating the material, nor pushing it out of the nesting boxes like they had with straw or hay. The cushion-like material made for cleaner eggs with far less breakage. Additionally, the user periodically stirred the product, mixing the manure with the bedding to eventually be utilized as a high-performing organic fertilizer. Users will notice less laborious manure handling with the lightweight, longer-lasting material, as well as negligible levels of odor and dust, so you can get the most out of each application regardless of whether you have several thousands of birds or a small backyard flock. Not only is Roost great for small poultry like chickens, but for larger birds like turkey, geese, ducks, and other domestic fowl. The unique physical properties as well as the incorporation of organic paper fiber makes Roost compostable, pH neutral, sustainable, and organic. For the cleanest bedding option available at the best value, try PittMoss Roost in your chicken run and see the difference first hand!
