Which has been the best material in your experience?
Need one that won't cause anything negative with water since some water gets inside the nest of it rains hard enough.

Lots of things will work....nothing is good with a leaky nest, get that fixed.

I like a flake of straw, shoved in tight and bowled out a bit.

I'm wondering about this too. I had pine shavings in mine but my hen just started laying yesterday (2 eggs so far). Before laying both times, she went in the box and kicked all the shavings out - put her eggs down on the wooden bottom of the box.
