    i just got my chicks in a few days ago, and asked my husband to pick up pine shavings on his way home, but he picked up a few bags of cypress and pine mulch! (husbands, what do ya do?) does anyone know if i can use that for bedding? or should i just take it back? meanwhile i'm going through a lot of paper towels!

    It won't be quite as absorbent as you'd want, but it will work in a pinch.
