    Pine shavings would definately stink less, and be easier to clean up.

    Cedar is what causes the problems.
     
  3. I tried straw and switched to pine shavings which I like better but the chickens didn't seem to care.
    I've heard that straw is better than hay as hay was said to attract mice.
