Why we love it
After using traditional pine shavings in our brooder for 5 weeks or so, we felt like we were ready to experiment with other options that may help our garage feel less like a pet store.
We stumbled across this new bedding made from recycled coffee grounds on Instagram and were excited to see it available from our local Tractor Supply store.
What it’s missing… the dust that comes from the pine shavings, the clumpy wet pieces that stay moist with chicken poop, the pet store smell, the mess of pine shavings everywhere.
Instead, a 1″ thick, soft, dark brown surface with a pleasant coffee smell. The poops kind of get coated with the coffee grounds and dry out. Then you can scoop them out with a kitty litter scoop.
And before you ask, supposedly the grounds do not have any caffeine, so you won’t have wired chickens!
