I'd still like to know about using Care Fresh

    in my chick brooder.

    I know it worked great for my snake's bedding. Don't know about for chicks in a brooder.

    To me it makes more sense than pine shavings ecologically since it's already recycled. It would be like re-recycling. A little goes a long way too. I also know it's sold by bird shops to put in the bottom of bird cages.

    Can anyone tell me their experience with using it for chicks?

    Never used it for chicks, but did use it for other pets.

    Personally I preferred aspen or pine - much better smell, and I though the carefresh was just as dusty and LOADS more expensive.

    I still use it and like it alot better then the shavings. Plus it has no dust to it and smells good. Plus I also use the corn cob bedding since it has no dust to it. I keep my brooders in my guest room so the no dust thing is big in my book.
