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.

    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.

    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.

    Pleasantly surprised

    By Linda on Feb 22, 2021

    Had my doubts about this product because we continually have to replace our chickens bedding flakes so i thought they’d tear up the pads as well. After 2 weeks they are surprisingly still in place and mostly intact. I will definitely buy these again.

    Nesting material

    By Chickenhaven on May 14, 2021

    Chickens will use it but will not lay on them. A bit pricy for the quantity.

    Reserving Judgement for now

    By ChickenMom on Sep 12, 2020

    These pads look like they will do the job. My hens should start laying soon and seem to be interested in the material... But not so interested that they want to eat it. My only concern is that the pads might not be thick enough to keep eggs from breaking.

    Paper stuck to the pad

    By Emma on Sep 6, 2020

    Had to toss the lot. Small paper is used to divide the nesting pads. The paper was stuck to all the pads. When you try to remove it pulls off the first layer of the pad unraveling most of the pad. Chickens tossed it first introduction to the coop
