    Paper towels, carpet squares (spray with the hose and dry in the sun), rubber shelf liner (again, spray with the hose), or pine chips after they are about 1 week old.

    I use a layer of textured paper towels. they are cheap and easy to clean up when the poop gets to much. the texture helps with preventing spraddle leg issues.
