    Can I use sawdust for bedding?

    Hardwood sawdust can be problematic if it gets wet. I also wouldn't us it for chicks since they may be tempted to eat it.

    The sawdust would be from a pallet factory. Why is hardwood problematic?

    I'd be leery of treated wood in a pallet factory..many are treated but maybe after fabrication.
