  Don't laugh at me, but never though of using the pine shavings for their nest bedding. I'm the other way around, it's just eaiser for me to roll up the hay and through it into the mud where the cattle muck through to make it (mud) stiffer.

Louisiana weather. :-)

  Do you rather pine shavings in the nest boxes over hay/straw?
