    Initially I use grit sheets like you'd use in a pet birds cage, then after a few days I use straw as the majority of poop falls through it.

    hi thank you for that, not thought of using grit sheets.
    i decided to put wood shavings in and they seem happy with it, chucking it all about and digging.l
