Chickens are like a 24hr composting system; what they eat one day drops out the next bursting with nitrogen for the undoubted benefit of your vegetable patch. However, the droppings are acidic and over time this acidity can slowly build up, traditionally the way to treat this was to add lime to the soil.

But now there is a way to neutralise the droppings at source using the catchily named Effective Micro-organisms. The microorganisms are mixed with molasses and bran, allowed to ferment and then dried to produce a stable product. This sweet smelling mix is known as Bokashi and can be fed daily to your chickens at a rate of 5% of the weight of their feed and sprinkled on the dropping tray under the perching bars. Your chickens will love it and just thinking of all those millions of little organisms working away improving the soil has just got to make you feel good too.

Does what it says in the description! - Susan,

Thanks. This is my first foray into bokashi composting and I'm really enjoying how much less I'm throwing away now I can compost meat and fish bones and scraps.


Great for drying up droppings and dramatically reducing odour - Clare,

This stuff is great! I sprinkle a small amount on top of the hens daily layers pellets and on the droppings tray of their Eglu Go. Droppings are drier (so easier to pick up) and virtually no ammonia smell. Highly recommend


Great for drying droppings and reducing smell - Clare,

I sprinkle a small amount on our hens layer pellets each day (they like it) and over the droppings tray; it dries up the droppings and greatly reduces the ammonia. Great stuff; I will always have this on stock at home


Fantastic for drier droppings - Clare, Derbyshire,

I sprinkle a little on the top of their layers pellets - droppings now drier and easier to scoop. And no smell thus far, in the coop. I'm also putting the droppings in the compost bin, with an extra sprinkle in there every so often. A 1kg bag is going to last AGES. I will always buy this from now on


Active bran - great product! - Fiona,

I started using this 2 weeks ago when I added 3 new hens to my existing 2. I was curious if this would make the poop less wet which would be a great benefit with more girls sleeping in the coop. It was worked very well, the pooh us much drier and appears to be smaller than normal, making of the coop easier and the run seems much cleaner than normal. The hens are in great condition and seem to really enjoy the taste. Will definitely buy again
