      We’ve been getting Yesterday’s News on chewy but I was wondering if there’s a cheaper option for us to compare it to. Would Tractor Supply Natural Pine Pelletized Bedding – 40lb be ok?

      Yes, pine pellets from TSC are the cheapest litter you can get. I use them!

      I use pine pellets too! I have used them for years. Cheap, absorbs odors and can be composted.

      Yesterday’s News is fine to use. It can be a little pricey. So yes, if you can get cheap pine pellet litter, then go for it. The litter is kiln-dried, so it’s safe to use.

      I can’t find a better place to post this : (  My Agway dealer just told me that hardwood stove pellets are bad to use for rabbit litter, on account of some Black Walnut or Swamp Oak wood, which is toxic might be used to make them. I have read on many rabbit sites that wood pellets are good to use;  doesn’t seem likely, given the risk of poisoning.

      I use horse stall pellets which are made from pine and sold for animal bedding use, so that would be a safe option if you’re concerned.

      Kiln dried pine pellets are safe, which is what people refer to in the rabbit community.

      Yes, we use wooden kitty litter pellets too, topped with a layer of hay so they won’t stand in any wetness.

      These pellets are dirt cheap and you don’t need much of it: I only put it in the corners where they pee. Even though I change the boxes daily a 5 kg bag lasts me almost 2 months, costing about €4.
