I've been using Aubiose in the piggies hay/bedding areas for about three weeks now after switching from shavings and so far I'm very impressed. I find it very absorbent, doesn't seem to get wet in between cleans and it's very soft.

A few people have mentioned Megazorb to me and I've been tempted to try it. I've read the sticky post on bedding reviews but just wondered if anyone had used Megazorb, what you thought and how you found it compared to other bedding options?

The other areas of my piggies enclosures are fleece.

I also loved Auboise and was tempted to try Megazorb, but here (Switzerland) it was just too expensive.
I am not sure about prices where you live, but for me it wasn't worth the extra cost.

It's actually cheaper than the Aubiose but only by about £1 from my local farm supplier. I do like the Aubiose though.

I love Aubiose, though it gets more expensive every time I buy it! This time last year it was £8.60 and now
it's £9.45! I haven't tried megazorb but I don't like it as much from an aesthetic point of view, but if Aubiose keeps climbing I might give it a go!

i cleaned my hutches today,i have used a layer of megasorb,then a layer of aubiose,and i have used this before and i think this is the most absorbent bedding ive found,megasorb does not go as far as a bag of aubiose.ive found you need two bags of megasorb to a 20kg of aubiose.there is no smell or wet patches after 7 days of using the mixture of bedding,ive 4 piggies in each hutch.I pay £10.50 a bale of aubiose,and £7.00 for 85litre bag of megasorb.

I didn't like Aubiose. I found that although it's good at keeping the surface dry (which it's designed to do), the liquid sinks to the bottom of the tray rather than being absorbed, resulting in a layer of wet floating around. Megazorb actually absorbs the wet and there is never any liquid at the bottom of the tray.

But Aubiose gave you more for your money and wasn't as dusty. But I still prefer Megazorb and use it in all my piggy hay boxes and bunny litter trays (always as the substrate layer with hay over the top).
