    I know it is fine to use pine shavings but TSC only has small bags and since the girls still have a few weeks inside is it ok to use aspen shavings since they come in big bags it would be easier. Don't want to do anything wrong. Thx.[​IMG][​IMG]:weee:ya

    Aspen usually has less pine odor and is softer(at least the kind I bought was like that). I would think it would be fine. Isn't it more expesive than regular pine? I buy the big bags of pine shavings at the feed store.
