switching to nest pads-has anyone done this and had their chickens quit using them?

    I hate like the dickens when it's really windy (like it has been for the past month or two, or so it seems) and when I get eggs the shavings swirl all over and get all over me. It's no better to go in the coop and in fact, it's worse. So I wanted to switch to the excelsior nest pads so that I don't have that problem. Anyone switch and have laying issues?

    OK another question then. Any idea how long they last? I want the natural ones because I think they would have less issues laying with them.
