As a breeder nothing is more important than the welfare of your chicks.
Dust and disease are two of the biggest contributors to a high mortality rate so it’s critical you use a bedding that’s dust free and hygienic. Keeping the chicks warm is incredibly important so using a bedding with insulating properties can be key to their survival.
Clean and Free of Potential Health Risks
Green Mile bedding is made from brand new cardboard so free from any sort of contamination or mould spores. By using new cardboard we can also guarantee it being free from contamination such as food or chemicals.
“Aspergillosis is the infection of the respiratory tract with various fungi, mainly of the Aspergillus family. Damp shavings and straw are particular sources.” See source
Wet or potentially mouldy cardboard will never enter our production line thus eliminating the risk of spores or other irritations to an animal’s airway.
Warm and Insulating
Young chicks have a poor ability to maintain body temperature and are prone to hypothermia. Cardboard itself has excellent insulating properties which help to keep the chicks warm during those first important weeks. Chicks find it hard to move the bedding with their feet reducing the chances of exposing the cold floor beneath.
The other key feature of any good bedding is the absorbency. Green Mile is the most absorbent bedding on the market. Soaking up any moisture produced by the chicks or water feeders. Liquid will pass through to the bottom layers where it will be quickly absorbed leaving the top layer nice and dry.
Finally, disposal can be an issue for any rearing farms. A huge amount of waste is created each season and without proper management can also become a huge problem. Green Mile is 100% biodegradable and will rot away completely in 10 – 12 weeks. It can be spread directly onto the land which will aid with soil structure by putting fibre back into the soil.
