I use pelleted pine bedding for my horses; I switched over to that about 2 years ago, and it's saved me a bundle of time when cleaning, and, my manure pile is about 50% smaller. I love the stuff. I've assumed that this shouldn't be used for chickens, because since it's a pellet, they might take it for food and eat it rather than just...poo on it & scratch around in it. (I do feed pelleted layer mash, in a hanging feeder both in the coop and in the run.) Anyhow, thought I'd post the question and see if anyone else has used it for adult chickens. There's a little part of me that thinks once they tasted it, they wouldn't try to eat it (that's what my horses did). Then again...I've only had chickens for a short itme, and I sure don't want to make a bad mistake! If they worked, I think they'd last much longer than shavings and possibly would be easier to clean out of the coop. Also, they'd definitely keep odor down (although I don't have a problem with that, having just a few, but I'll be getting more this summer). Thanks for your opinions!
