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! -

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 -

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


Active bran - great product! -

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


Food of the chicken Gods! -

Your food is amazing. We recently acquired 6 hens, 2 of which we were told no longer layed. After a few days on your food they started producing the loveliest eggs, huge and flavourful. Hail the the omlet chef! Thank you very much from Lilly, Gertrude, Lightning, Bolt, Turbo & McQueenie xx


This should come as standard with chickens -

I was a bit concerned when the product arrived as it referred to use with worms and composting. However I used reviews on this site to understand how to use it and will now always keep it in stock. I put paper in the bottom of my Eglu Go then sprinkle some of this on the top - it really does eliminate most of the odour in the girls bedroom. I then sprinkle a handful over their feed each day and it has made their droppings much firmer and therefore easier to collect.
