    Where does everyone get their pine shavings for the coop? I picked up at TS but it certainly isn't a large enough bag to keep up a coop. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    I just get more than one bag from TS. Also, if they receive a shipment and any of the bags have even the tiniest hole in it then you get like 2 or 3 dollars off per bag.

    I use bales of wheat straw- it goes a long way and the chickens don't eat it. They just like to kick it around a lot. I pay 4.99 a bale at the feed store.
