Hi all,
So, I have a 2x6 c&c cage. Two thirds of it is fleece & I'm very happy with that. In the other third, I currently have carefresh which is in the 'kitchen' area.

As much as I love Carefresh & the colours you can get, it's pretty pricey! We're in the process of moving, this means I'm hopefully going to be able to expand the cage even further to have a separate kitchen area (either a 2x2 or 2x3 grid size).

So, I want to find a decent bedding for this area, that won't track very much & stick to my piggies fur. I have three long haired girls & so I need a bedding which generally doesn't stick to them.

I've looked at Back to nature bedding and a like, which is what I'm leaning towards.
Any recommendations of different brands and experience would be appreciated! Keeping in mind I have long haired pigs too :)
Thank you!

Hi, I use megazorb in my hayloft. Hardly tracks and doesn't get trapped In fur, I have 4 long haired girls and swear by it. £10 for a humongous bag
MEGAZORB
I get mine from a local horse supply shop and that bag will Last me about 5-6 months if I use it in the hayloft and litter trays.

Thank you! I've heard that Megazorb can be rather dusty?
Have you any experience of Fitch bedding? There seem to be so many good reviews of it!

I'm interested in what people think about this too. In currently using carefresh but I'm finding it a bit pricey. I've also heard about Fitch bedding being good?

I am really leaning towards Fitch. Thank you for the recommendation! It looks like great stuff & lovely and soft, which is just what I want.
it is really lovely and soft, dust free aswell. i do the same and use it in their litter tray and also in either all or part of the cage, depending on what fleece liners i have washed and dried at the time :))

Perfect! I'll definitely have to purchase some once the carefresh has run out. Do you order on their website? Is the shipping quick?
yes i order through the website and delivery is very quick - i usually get it two days later. but we do live really close to them so this might be why it's a bit quicker for us. so close yet so far.. (we don't drive) :))

Sorry for the late reply,one of my pigs is long haired and my rabbit is very long haired,so I use wood based cat litter in both litter trays,it's cheap and easy to get. It doesn't stick to fur either.Hope this helps.

Thank you! I will definitely give that a go if the Fitch doesn't work out. But fingers crossed it will :)

Does it work out cheaper than carefresh?
I've just googled the weight of a normal bag of Carefresh (10L) & apparently that is around 1.1kg.
20kg of Fitch costs £20.99 on their site compared to 1.1kg of Carefresh at £6 from petsathome.
For the same 20kg of Carefresh it would cost £120 according to the weight info I got :O
