Health & Hygiene Kit
If there were just 3 products we would recommend to people wanting to keep chickens then these would be them. You won't find a better-priced deal online for these 3 items - guaranteed!
Inside our handy Health and Hygiene Kit, you are going to find:
An Anti Viral and Bacterial Disinfectant - 500g
Regularily cleaning your coop is something you have to do. And when you come to clean your coop you should be using a disinfectant which is suitable and safe for your chickens.
If we were to recommend one product to do this job it would be the DEFRA approved Viratec-P Disinfectant by Nettex.
What's great about it and we love it so much is that it cleans and disinfectants areas in one application. It is bactericidal, fungicidal, sporicidal and virucidal all in one, so you only need this product when you clean.
What we also like about it is that it decomposes into a harmless by-product and is considered non-toxic, unlike many of the other chemical-based cleaning products.
It's a pink powder that comes in a 500g tub and when mixed with water makes up 50 litres of disinfectant. It also has a shelf life of up to 18 months, so this one little tub is really all you need for the next year.
It's effective against 65 strains of virus in over 19 viral families and hundreds of strains of bacteria and over 100 strains of fungi and kills bacteria in as little as 5 minutes.
Cleaning your coop is something you must do regularly and Viratec-P is the one cleaning product we recommend and use.
Red Mite Powder - 300g
Prevention is the best cure, so keep your new chicken coop red mite from day one. Total Mite Kill Powder is a natural and non-toxic powder that can be safely applied to your birds and coop and provides protection for up to 6 weeks with just one application.
The main ingredient in it is D.E (Diatomaceous earth) which is 100% natural and made from fossilised diatoms. It works by breaking down the waxy coating of pests, causing them to dehydrate and die typically within 3 days of its application.
Suitable for organic farming systems, and with no egg withdrawal necessary Nex Tex Mite Kill Powder can be also be used on domestic pets, horses and farm livestock to control fleas, lice and ticks!
Cider Apple Vinegar- 1 litre
It is a very affordable way to ensure your hen's immune systems are kept nice and strong, which in turn helps them fight off any nasty diseases and bacterial infections.
Nutrimin's Cider Apple Vinegar with Garlic is one of the best selling tonics in the U.K and something we highly recommend that all chicken keepers use.
It's a totally natural organic, anti-bacterial, anti-coccidial additive which has many beneficial effects for poultry .
It helps increases egg production, improves feathering and the added presence of garlic is effective in improving respiratory and bronchial problems.
This one-litre bottle, when added to your hen's drinker water, is enough to make up 200 litres and is a very cost-effective way to ensure that your hens remain in top health.
It's one of our “must have” products for chicken keepers and we've been using this brand now for almost a decade. - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

1 litre of concentrated Cider Apple Vinegar with added garlic.

Where can we deliver to?
Orders can be delivered anywhere in mainland England, Wales and most areas in the lowlands of Scotland. If you live outside these areas we then, unfortunately, cannot deliver our products to you. This includes the Channel Islands and Northern Ireland (IM , GY, JE, BT)
Like most online companies we rely on (3rd party) courier companies to deliver all our orders around the country. As much as we would love to get our products in the hands of as many people as possible the cost of getting our coops to anyone who lives outside mainland England and Wales is prohibitive - sometimes more than the actual cost of the product!
Delivery to Scotland
We can deliver to most lowland areas in Scotland. These include the following postcodes: DD , DG , EH , FK1-15 , G , KA1-26 , KA29-30 , KY , ML , PA1-19 , PH1-9 , TD
If you live outside these areas then unfortunately, we are unable to offer delivery due to the high extra charges levied by the courier companies we use. You are welcome to arrange your own courier to collect from us, or we can deliver the items to a courier up north for onward journey to you.
Delivery to the Isle of Wight
The courier company that we use can deliver to the Isle of Wight. However, there is a delivery surcharge of £15.95 per order.
