    I use pine shavings for everything, the floor of the coop (Deep Litter), in the nest boxes, in the brooder. They're perfect, dry out the droppings, the chicks scratch in it in the brooder, and its good to put in the compost once it's replaced. Takes a while to be composted, but it's great garden cover for the winter.
