How to use Bed-Down Crumble Down
1 x 30 litre bag of Crumble Down will cover approximately 1.5m sq (16 ft sq). Spread an even layer over the coop floor. Sprinkle the pellet surface, using a watering can with a “rose” attachment to activate expansion of the pellets. Leave the litter for 20 minutes while the pellets absorb the water. Remaining whole pellets will naturally breakdown to a soft bed. Using a scoop, remove solids and any wet patches regularly, topping up with crumbledown as necessary. Empty and clean out coop as required.
