Our town's compost facility allow residents to pick up as much compost and wood chips (for mulch) as we want for free. I always pick up several garbage cans worth each week. I was wondering if the wood chips would be okay to use as bedding for my ducks. It's untreated but I feel like I read that there was some type of wood that birds should not be bedded on and since this is wood chip processed from down trees all over the town, they would all be mixed. When I used to keep reptiles, pine was a big no no as far as bedding went since it was toxic to snakes and lizards. Wondering if there's such a rule with birds. Or even if there were, if it was diluted with other types of wood, if that would be okay. If so, then I would never have to worry about the cost of bedding again!
