    I can't imagine why this wouldn't be safe but that's why I'm posting it. I just cut down nearly a dozen ornamental grasses for the winter. Can I use this material in the coop for bedding and the next boxes?

    So long as they haven't been sprayed with insecticide I see no problems at all there.
