Description

Give your chickens a safe, comfortable and fresh environment to lay their eggs with the Excelsior Nesting Pads from Precision Pet. These pads feature unique, absorbing technology that actually pulls moisture away from the eggs and into a liner below—this keeps your nesting environment more sanitary by separating eggs from chicken droppings. And, with a fluffable, nuzzle-worthy top layer of wood chips, you can feel confident that your hens are as cozy as their developing eggs. The pads encourage your birds to lay inside the nesting box, rather than on hard surfaces, and makes egg-gathering even faster. It fits perfectly inside the Precision Pets Chicken Coop nesting box and most standard-size nesting boxes.

Key Benefits
  • All moisture is drawn to the pad's paper backing, which gives your chicken a clean, dry surface to lay her eggs.
  • The soft, cozy pads encourage your hens to lay eggs in one place, making egg collection even quicker!
  • Wood shavings on top are designed to be nuzzled and nested in, but the pads won't lose their shape—no matter how comfy your hen gets.
  • Completely biodegradable and sustainable, they can be safely composted after your hen is done nesting.  
  • Cushioned surface gives your chicken a comfortable nesting place while protecting her eggs from breaking.

    Nesting Pads

    By BockkersAndSquakersMom on Sep 16, 2021

    I have 60 or so girls and I love these pads and wish I had known of them before, they have greatly reduced my egg cleaning time, easy easy easy to use! And Yes, leave the paper on as it is part of the pad and goes on the bottom. One of my girls also would kick out nesting material but not these. She tried but they have remained in place for everyone else to use. And Im thinking I no longer need straw, just layer of wood chips or not and the pads...

    Thanks to these I don’t wash eggs!

    By JOls on Sep 19, 2021

    I was new to chickens this year and bought these on a whim to try them. Now I’m hooked! Keeps our eggs perfectly clean and hens happy. When the pads get pooped on them or too torn up from nesting chickens the clean up and change out is ridiculously easy. I thought maybe these were just a first time chicken owner gimmick, but I’ve been convinced I need these.

    Love these!

    By WoodsElf on Aug 1, 2021

    Just love these nesting box pads. My 10 hens lay in them without any issue. They keep the eggs safe until I get around to collect. And I love how easy they clean up! I just put them in, fluff them up a little, hens do the rest of the nesting. Great product.

    Hens take time to adjust

    By ReluctantChics on Jun 6, 2021

    We have a small flock of 7 hens and no roosters. We were having trouble with the hens scratching the straw out of the nest boxes. When I first added the pads, I put a small amount of straw on top. The hens did not like that change and began laying on the floor. Once I added a large amount of straw on top of the pads, the hens moved back to the nest boxes. They still scratch out the straw, but now they are unable to scratch to the bare wood, and the pads on bottom provide a safe space for the eggs.

    Great Product

    By hdeck on Aug 2, 2021

    Love these for our nesting boxes. Much better than using shavings. Our chickens always kicked out all of the shavings, but with these nesting pads, the straw prevents them from kicking as much out.

    Great product!

    By vicki on Aug 31, 2021

    Much thicker than the other pads I've used. Work great for my quail to get off the wire on.

    Easy to use

    By Sarah on Apr 11, 2021

    As others mentioned, yes, there is paper stuck to the nest pad- I'm pretty sure that's by design, and if you try to remove it, it's going to unravel. My only gripe is how expensive these are. But other than that, they are easy to use, the girls settle into them right away.

    Nesting Pads

    By Gemma on Feb 25, 2021

    Chickens love them, easy to remove and replace and eggs are always clean. I will never go back to a loose product. Someone above gave a bad review above saying there was paper stuck between the pads and they fell apart when removed. The paper is what keeps the bedding all in place, It's what makes these so easy to remove from the nesting box. Don't remove it.

    Great for nesting!

    By HoneyBadger on Mar 12, 2021

    I use these in both my chicken nesting boxes as well as a nest box for quail. They can kick around in them with very little destruction. It doesn't kick out like pine shavings would. They do break down a little bit as expected, but I really like them.
