Giveaway: Nesting Box Blend from Treats for Chickens

Years ago, I had a desire to spoil my pet chickens.  I was looking for a company that specialized in organic chicken treats.  Three years ago, I happened to stumble upon Treats for Chickens one evening while surfing the internet.  Immediately I fell in love with their products, their philosophy and their organic practices.  I placed my first order for their Nesting Box Blend and their organic food grade diatomaceous earth (DE).

The Nesting Box Blend is simply amazing!  The blend smells heavenly and is made from an assortment of dried herbs and flowers.  I like to think of it as aromatherapy for chickens.  It is said to make their egg laying process less stressful and it also keeps mites and lice away from the flock.  Habitually, each time I clean out the nesting boxes, I sprinkle about a tablespoon of the Nesting Box Blend and a teaspoon of DE  into the bottom of each box.  I finish off the boxes with a thick layer of pine shavings.  As I am cleaning the coop the girls know exactly what I am doing. They eagerly anticipate exploring the nesting boxes after they are cleaned.  The best part, is that I swear everyone lays an egg on the day I clean out the coop!  Three years later, I cannot imagine my girls’ lives without these two products!

Over the years, I always find myself trying new items from Treats for Chickens to my order.  I have tried and swear by both of their chicken toys.  I love to add a teaspoon of the Cluck and Sea Kelp on top of their weekly plain yogurt treat.  In the heat of summer, my flock loves me to make them refreshing tea in one of their waterers.  I also spoil the girls like crazy in the Winter when they cannot get out and free-range as much.  This past season, they were treated to Meal Worm Delight, Worms and Harvest Flakes and Pumpkin Seed Snacks.  Three years later, I still religiously place my order every few months.

This past month, I was approached by Treats for Chickens to become a sponsor of my website.  To celebrate, we both thought that giving away their famous Nesting Box Blend (4 oz size) would be a fantastic treat for our followers!  I hope you will check them out for yourself.  They are another wonderful example of a small family run business, whose heart is truly in every product they create.
