We are using pine shavings for our chickens and quail. They are in the same coop but different cages. We started to notice that the shavings look very damp. They were fresh a couple of days ago. My family and I have been doing a lot of reading about alternative bedding. We were reading about hay and straw. Would love some feed back on bedding that everyone else uses and which bedding is the best for quail and chickens! Also my quails started hatching today from the incubator! 5 have already hatched!
