    I bought this bag of wood shavings (Brand is Royal Wood Shavings)

    And it doesnt say what kind of wood they are from. Please tell me if I can use them in the coop. Thanks!


    Heres the picture of the bag and information. ^

    They are fine. They list the woods used in their FAQ. We started out using these in `05 but they changed their shaving size (much finer, now). We switched to a larger `chip' brand (less dusty).

    They are fine. The FAQ states that it is composed of mostly pine. I have been getting mine at Wall-Mart in the pet department.
