Melcourt Chicken Chips
Soil with grass surface
o The geotextile membrane will keep the Melcourt Chicken Chips separate from the grass and subsoil
o It will also enable any surface moisture to percolate through the chips and soak away.
o Furthermore, if you decide to relocate your coop the Chips will be easier to move.
o The initial installation depth for the chips should be between 3"/ 75mm and 6V150mm.
o We suggest that you 'top-up'the chips surface from time to time to maintain the desired depth./ o For veterinary advice contact Victoria Roberts at www.vicvet.com
