REQUEST: Can I use raw cotton in nesting boxes?

I'd harvested some cotton few yes ago. If I clean the bulk of junk from it, can I use it in my nesting boxes?

Nest boxes

In my nest boxes I fold a feed bag to fit (nest boxes are 1 ft³). When a bag gets soiled; fold a new one; pop out the soiled; pop in the new. Feed bags are a nylon mesh bag.

Frozen poop just peels off in below freezing temperatures and just flakes off in summer when left out in the sun to bake and dry.

 

I have 65 trips around the sun it is the best method I have stumbled upon.

 

Make sure the twine is removed from the open end of the bag it can get tangled around your birds.

 

Hope this helps,
