    I really would like to work with a good dust free pine shaving for in the coop. I've found a ton of places online that sell this stuff in bulk for equines... but I don't need (and have no place to store!) a semi-truck load, or even half a semi-truck load! Does anyone know of a place online you can buy dust free pine shavings for a decent cost (less expensive is good), that will also deliver smaller amounts?

    I get mine from my federated co op here at just a little over $5 for 3 cubic feet here is a link to the site that makes it. They screen it for dust so its not as bad as most shavings.

    I used to get mine at Southern States (5 something for 3 cu ft) Now get it at TSC (4 something for 4 cu ft) - Thats a big difference in price and quantity.

    All of our local feed stores sell pine shavings. So do pet supply stores, such as PetSmart. They're a little more expensive at pet stores, but you can buy smaller packages there.

    I used to get mine at Ace Hardware and TSC. I got a much better deal at Ace hardware. I no longer buy them due to my finances. I take my 96 gallon rolling trashcan and rake into the woods and get leaves. I think you are better off to find a store that sales them. If you have them shipped I think the shipping will always cost more than the product. Shavings are heavy.
