A friend of mine is helping me build my coop tomorrow.
He is a carpenter but also makes and sells hundreds of wooden toys of all types that he sells at craft shows etc.
He has offered me all of his sawdust and shavings which is mostly pine and occasionally other woods but no cedar.
The problem is right now he only has sawdust as he is making wheels for the toys.
Hopefully later on he will have more shavings for me as I have gotten those before for another project.
The stuff on the shop floor now isn't super small I just have to sift out the wood bits from making the toy wheels.
But he has also offered me the sawdust from his dust collection system and I worry that will be way to fine for use in the coop.
Hay/Straw are very expensive here in Alaska and I already blew out my budget for this coop and run build as well as everything else I have bought for the Chicks.
So how fine is too fine for sawdust for a chicken coop?
I used the search feature but didn't get a definitive answer on this question.
