    Ugh that sounds gross. Pine pellets are amazing. Made for horse bedding. Absorbs moisture very well. Make sure they have plenty of space too. Makes a big difference. They grow fast two.

    I think mine had 3 home upgrades and then a 4th to outside (much sooner than I wanted) at 3.5wks. It's great now. They live in greenhouse. I drilled some holes and just hose down.

    Towels, old shhets and pillow cases easier to clean and keep dry, I fpund the wood pellets get to moist and get injested
