    Is bunny bedding ok or should we go with wood shavings?...Thanx in advance

    UPDATE: tried the bunny bedding, they kept eating it, took it out, back to puppy pads...I'm concerned they'll do the same with the wood shavings unless ya'll say they don't like them or it's safe...I didn't want them to impact on the bunny schtuff but thought it was nicer for them...

    We used alfalfa hay. They didn't eat too much of it and they seem very comfortable in it.

    Alfalfa Hay is a good idea. If they do eat some, it is good protein [​IMG]
  4. I prefer either using hay, or brooding them on wire. I have seen baby ducks who have rooted around in the shavings and scratched their eyes.
