If it kept the loft over winter it would certainly make it attractive to me, since I use drop bins under the roosts the bedding stays dry.Robbie wrote:QR_BBPOSTSeems to have pretty good loft and it doesn't seem to pack down although I'm not sure how it would do if it got damper or wetter. The bales are lighter than shavings or flax.Ontario Chick wrote:QR_BBPOST I wonder if it could be used successfully for deep bedding, since the small pcs wouldn't allow for air space which adds insulating value and would just keep settling in to a solid mass?
Also presumably couldn't be mucked out twice a year with a pitchfork?
I only use the flax bedding for brooders in the house (pure magic there) but find it too fine for the pens.
I am game to try anything new, but it has to be an improvement over the old and tested. :)
Really curious to hear anybody's experience with it when used as deep bedding.
