Do I need a mite prevention kit?

Yes, this probably contains the most used chicken keeping tools. Diatomaceous earth is in our opinion is best product for keeping mites and lice at bay

How should I use this kit?

This kit is great to add into your to cleaning schedule, clean the coop and run and renew bedding and sprinkle a small amount of DE into the bedding. We also use DE directly on the chickens, by applying onto feathers and rubbing in until the dust reaches the skin. It’s the best way to protect your chickens and chicken house from red mite.

“Pipinchick couldn’t have been more helpful”

Pipinchick couldn't have been more helpful, delivering our two friendly hens and some supplies we couldn't get hold of elsewhere. The birds have kept us entertained - and supplied with eggs - all summer long. If you are lucky enough to have a small garden I'd recommend a few chickens for everyone.
