    i've read several posts about using pine shavings and not cedar for the floor of the coop. I have a lot of dead tree limbs on my property so would it be ok to grind those and use the shaving / bits for the floor instead of pine shavings? Is there any risk of using this? Some of the grindings are as thin or papery as the pine shavings....would that be an issue?
