    I cannot find a place to buy pine shavings. Do you buy them by the bag or truck load? I am in a rural community.[​IMG]
    Help Please and Thanks!

    Most feed stores or pet stores sell them. Good luck!

    We get ours at Tractor Supply Co. If you don't have that, try a feed store.

  6. chicken coops I use saw dust from a local mill in my horse stalls I buy pine shavings for. The ones I get are packaged by agway but I buy them at coles hardware cause that's were they are cheaper. Its a compressed 3.5 yard bag that opens up to cover 5 sq feet according to the bag.
    My best advise would be call around to diffent feed stores, tractor supplies and hardware stores and ask if they have them and for a price. Go where ever the price is best. Just make sure you get pine.

    We buy our pine shavings from Tractor Supply or WalMart (as a last resort). Saw dut is too dusty in my opinion...

    for ours we lucked out, my DH spotted a truck with a sign on it and he jotted down the number. turns out a nearby lumbermill wants to get rid of their shavings so they deliver them free! we got a huge truckload full and its lasted and lasted.

    good luck!
