I am new to chickens. I have been doing a lot of reading on this page to get more educated. However, I have come across a contradiction on whether to use pine needles or not. I am not sure the type of pine trees we have in our yard but I know they have the long pine needles. I would like to use the pine needles in my coop. I found some threads here that pine needle make great bedding material. but then I found a thread that people were telling the person not to use them and that she should cut all the pine trees down. UGH Someone tell me, can I use the pine needles or not??? So confused!
