no that has ceder in it...jeff
Carefresh does not have cedar in it, but the knockoff does. I don't like this bedding, it's very dusty and has caused me nothing but problems when using it for mammals.
I use pine shavings, no cedar. Plain old pine shavings are way cheaper than the care fresh. Walmart usually carries the giant bags (3cf) for $6 or $7 and most any pet store has them.
sorry about that it is the original...and I have seen bags like that at the store and they did have ceder I should have looked at the picture...jeff
I get my pine shavings at Walmart too, just be sure to check the individual bags to make sure it has large flakes and very little "fines" in the bottom, the finesy bags are very dusty, likely the end of the production line bagged up.
Yes, that is true. Also, they do carry the cedar too, so be sure you are getting pine. I have lately been buying Guardian pine flakes from Blains Farm & Fleet. Watch for free shipping sales.
I use either the Tractor Supply pine chips or the generic I get at Southern States farm store. It's about $5.50 for a compressed bag that expands to cover 8 cubic feet. Works great!
Here on the homestead I use pine shavings in the winter they have about 10 inches of it. I'll also toss in a couple flakes of straw. Has worked fine for years now. I'll throw a hand full of meal worms in their, the girls love it.
Whatever you use except cedar will be fine I use straw because they like it better to scratch but at a point you have to remember their chickens and their livestock they don't need anything fancy my aunt has raised chickens for nearly 20 year and uses no bedding and cleans out her coop once a year
