I line my hutch with puppy pads. I used to use newspaper but find puppy pads much better and am pleased moved over to them. I pop a load of hay over the top of the puppy pads so that my piggies can burrow underneath it and eat it and generally play with it.

Ooh I was wondering about puppy pads. I'm now just using the Back2nature pellets in the "bedroom" where they sit & wee a lot as it's so expensive, & newspaper & hay everywhere else. Seems ok but I might give puppy pads a go.

I prefer puppy pads as they have a waterproof backing and unlike newspaper the wee doesn't soak through to the wood. It is also so much easier to roll up the hay on total hutch clean day. (Love that job - not!)
