    I've heard the raving reviews about stove pellets as bedding... I'm currently building my ducks a huge new indoor pen and want to try the pellets instead of the normal horse bedding/shaving i use. I ny have one big problem, I CAN'T FIND THEM!!!! Anywhere! I went to Lowes, Home Depot, even a fire place specialty store. They all sell the stoves but not the pellets, how dumb huh? I know lowes in other places sell them, but not here. Apparently they are not super popular in the south. any one have any suggestions, or know of any website where i can buy it in smaller bags? (most online places sell it by the ton! lol)

    The only place I have seen them is Tractor Supply. They seem to rarely carry them.

    I even tried ordering them from lowes online, since some people could get them from lowes, but no.... There are probably 6 feed/farm stores within 50 miles of me... I guess i can try those... If not, i guess i'll have to stick to horse shavings, unless anyone else has a better suggestion...

    Feline Pine kitty litter.
    It's the same thing (i think) but it's more pricey.

    Stove pellets as bedding.... really? Where have you read about this? I'd love more info if you have any. I tried googling it and all I found was info about the stove pellets...not about using them for bedding [​IMG]

    I couldn't find stove pellets, so I got some Equine Fresh (the horse pellets Shelley mentioned) TSC had it on sale last week for 5.99 a 40 pound bag - not sure how long the sale lasts, might be all month, though.
