Its been horribly dry & oh so very hot here in Ne Al, hay has gotten a lil scarce due to the droubt. Other than hay or shavings is there anything else that would be good to use?

We use sweet Timothy hay. I buy the hay packaged for small animals at Meijer. It's already cut to a perfect size to fit nicely in the nesting boxes.

I like a good tight flake of straw, shoved down into nest box and 'bowled' out a bit......
.......it stays together better so not scratched out, or dug thru to hard bottom, of nest box.
