PetFoodDirect.com doesn't have any large bags of aspen bedding....do they? I might as well order from ferretstore.com if I can't even get my bedding from them, I would be getting free shipping from either one.

Or, I could get some other kind of good bedding, like Cell Sorb or something, whatever is good that I can get in a good quantity that isn't as expensive as CareFRESH.

How big is what they say it is? Like how long would a 6/1500 cu. in bag or a 1500 cu. in. bag last? And what does it mean by saying 5/1500 cu. in.? It seems like a good price, just how big is it and how long will it last? On ferretstore.com I remember seeing Aspen in 7000 cu. in, and I just didn't see anything that large on petfooddirect.com, or maybe I have, I'm just confused. Huh? lol.

1500 cubic inches so 1500 cu. in x 6 bags = 9,000 cu. in

9,000 cu in/ 12 in = 750
So 7.5 cubic feet

Thanks so much! Anyone know how long that would last? I might end up getting that, it is more than I thought! So they would actually send you 6 bags of it? To keep it fresher I suppose? I can't think of any other reason they would individually bag it like that and not make larger bags. That's cheaper than ferretstore.com, so I have to get one or two of those, I just need to know how long it will last so we can possibly buy ahead of time for bedding in the future, with this great no shipping.

And personally http://www.petfooddirect.com/store/product_detail.asp?pf%5Fid=100439013&dept%5Fid=477&brand%5Fid=525&mscssid=TVLKAG8SJJEG9MTLJ2HS8D416R3A2TSE for $19.99 + shipping and handling. Is a bad buy. For only 7.5 cubic feet. I would go to feed store. I get 10 cubic feet of pine for 6.95. And I can get aspen 10 cu. ft. for 9.99

Well I have 4 cages and my 10 cu. ft. of pine lasts 6 months to 9 months. So I imagine you are only going to have 1 cage. So I think 10 cu. ft would last you a super long time. Don't know about 7.5 cu. ft though

I would check out a local feedstore before you buy online. They are much cheaper. Unless you absolutly have to buy online.

I think it would last me a while, I'll ask my mom about getting a second bag. We don't have aspen at feed stores here, and I definitely don't want to get pine due to problems I have had with hamsters when I didn't know anything about it, so I am going to stay away from pine kiln dried or not.

ok just wanted to make sure first.... Well I would go ahead and order it then. It will last you a very long time I believe.
