AubiChick: The Hemp Bedding for Chickens Gold Standard
AubiChick is the extra soft & fine version of the famous Aubiose brand. The benefits of using this particular hemp bedding for chickens is that it is the perfect size for their feet, and it is extra comfortable for them. Aubichick is even more absorbent than our standard Aubiose hemp and it is without a doubt the most absorbent hemp bedding you can buy …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………. and that’s saying something!!!
Option 2: Using Aubiose Hemp Bedding for Chickens
Quick Summary: Aubiose is a better choice than AubiChick for dust sensitivities
There is no reason you cannot use our Aubioe hemp for your chickens, even though it had a horse on it. In fact, our dust sensitive customers prefer it. Each of our hemp bedding brands has its advantages. You can even mix and match them. Use AubiChick when you need an extra absorbent punch- and to maximize comfort for your birds- but use Aubiose for any animal or owner who is particularly sensitive to dust. The number one compliment we get for using the Aubiose hemp bedding for chickens is that it is the lowest dust option out there, even compared to other hemp, including AubiChick.
Aubiose and AubiChick are the work of master hemp farmers who were some of the very last farmers still growing hemp in the 1970’s, when cheap synthetic materials had all but killed the natural fibers market. The Aubiose farmers rebuilt an industry. Today hemp bedding is becoming common in local feed stores, and it all started with Aubiose. The Aubiose standards are the most strict in the entire industry and the Aubiose product is known to set the gold standard. All of our hemp is grown with a strict no chemical regiment and is cut and processed to exacting standards. The result is a healthy product which keeps your coops clean and fresh smelling for a reasonable price, once you’ve mastered the deep litter method! (psst: it’s easy! and it will save you money & energy!)
Hemp Bedding for Chickens & the Deep Litter Method
Deep littering this bedding leads to a very economical and quality performance. In most cases, you should only need 1-2 bales per year for an average size coop.
The deep litter method is the ultimate setup for coops. A deep litter system is a low maintenance method where you essentially “compost in place”, and only clean out your coop once a year. Rather than a thorough clean-out, you simply add small amounts of hemp bedding as you go, and let the microbial life do the work of decomposition. This allows beneficial microbes to form and keeps your coop surprisingly nice and clean smelling! It is actually cleaner even though it is less work.

Using Indigenous Microorganisms to Kickstart Microbial Life in Your Coop
According to master natural farmer Drake Weinert, “Indigenous Micro Organisms are the original life that has been working for countless generations to purify our Earth’s surface, and they can do it again, in record speed with our help…Clean water, clean air, healthy food, it all starts with robust life cycling nutrients in functioning subsoil systems.” By collecting locally indigenous microorganisms and propagating them in our chicken coops, we increase the health of the soil life around us and pass that benefit on to our chickens. With a deep litter hemp bedding system, we create the perfect home for beneficial microorganisms. All we have to do now is collect microorganisms from a healthy ecosystem in our area. Almost any forested environment will do, but it’s best to find a site with noticeable mycelial activity, such as a white “fuzz” slightly beneath the surface of the soil. It is also recommended to collect from a slightly higher elevation, so the microbes are a bit tougher and can transition better. The most common and accepted approach involves filling a wooden or bamboo box two-thirds full with “hard cooked rice”. Cover with a breathable top (such as a hemp mat!), and let sit in the forest for 3-5 days. In temperate climates, increase to 5-7 days. The rice should now be inoculated with a white mycelium. Cover with equal parts brown sugar or maple syrup to preserve the microorganisms. You have now created a shelf stable microbial culture.
