    I've used pine chips and sand (with a paper towel under food when I set it down).
    Do y'all think it's okay to just use PDZ straight ?

    Also, I was wondering about pelleted bedding. It may be fine for the little bantams, but I'm concerned about LF chicks more, will they try to eat it?


    By the way, I feed fermented feed, so it doesn't resemble the normal feed they get.

    Open to opinions!!
    Thanks for stopping by

    Have you tried pine shavings?

    Yes, when I said pine chips, I meant shavings.
