    See....she's getting it.

    Not all my chickens sing when they lay. I've got one that nearly screeches...must be a bit painful.

    Quote:Yes, the oils in pine are toxic as well--somewhat less so than cedar, but toxic nonetheless. It's less of a problem for animals not confined w/ the pine shavings--most chickens are indoors only overnight and there is usually less bedding (relatively speaking size-wise) in a chicken coop than in a hamster cage.

    Spayed/neutered free-running rabbits usually use litterboxes like cats do--hence, they are not confined w/ the shavings either. Even so, since rabbits are so sensitive to toxins, it is safer to use Carefresh or other non-softwood products in their litterboxes.

    Good information to know. Guess you learn something new everyday! [​IMG]
