I am sorry if this question is in wrong category. I am not quite sure where some of the things I ask belong. The question: would this be ok for bedding. In the chicken house/coop? It is made from wood reclaimed wood pulp, no odors of pine and of course no cedar odor , nor oils of either. Supposed to be more absorbent, does better at keeping ammonia levels down, and less prone to bacteria. Here is a description and details of it: http://www.petco.com/product/3370/Carefresh-Natural-Pet-Bedding.aspx?CoreCat=OnSiteSearch If it would have better absorption and help keep down ammonia levels better than pine shavings: wouldn't that be safer for bedding?
