Where do you get the pine shavings? The pet stores have Aspen litter - is that similar?
Aspen has a strong scent. I get my pine shavings at the farm supply store.
you can get it from farm store, or at walmart maybe kmart
Same! Look up feed warehouses in your area, farm supplies, and bulk pet suppliers
Thanks. I'll check Agway or Tractor Supply.
I get mine @ Case Tractor Supply for 3.99 a bag.
Aspen is fine to use. It's cedar that's a problem, because of the volatile oils in it. Most places that carry chicken feed also carry the large bales of pine.
I was just at Theisen's today. They sell really big brick bags of it for about $6.00 I think (my memory is not working with me tonight) Farm & Fleet's would be good to check as would any farm store. Our Tractor Supply seems to be higher than the other farm type stores.
I know alot of people could give reasons not to use hay.. but we have been using hay and add to the coop every 2 weeks or often as needed and we clean out our coop from the DLM every 6 months and can you say happy garden mulch.. ha ha
I was always afraid to use the pine for the scent being to strong for my kids noses and what not but I believe you can find them at a Local Atwoods if you have those stores where you are located.. sometimes walmart carries them but in the small bales near the small pet section... not sure of pricing
