    Angry fleece

    wwwooowww I just got done cleaning my pigs fleece and it smelled HORRIBLE.It even gave me a head ache. It was a great bargain and the first day seemed completely fine, but then I cleaned it out on the second day and i had 3 layers of fleece and baby crib pads and it still didnt work. There was still pee on the coroplast (sorry for my run-on sentences). Im thinking of changing to aspen does anyone have any preferences to this.(i used to use carefresh but it was to expensive)

    Re: fleece

    I have a standard cage at the end of my C&C cage that I put pine shavings in. I have a little wood ramp going into it. My Pigs will pee and do most of their pooping in the pine shavings. They did this on thier own within a week of having the fleece in the rest of the cage. You may want to try putting some kind of litter box of wood shavings in the cage and see if they pick up on this. It is worth a try. Using a small amount of wood shavings is cheaper than filling a big cage.

    Re: fleece

    well, i just wanted to know. if they are bigger pigs, they eat/drink more resulting in more output. i also heard that males excrement (sp?) smell more than females. but your situation doesnt apply to any of these, so nevermind.

    Re: fleece

    Aspen is awesome! I'd totally use it if I were you. Just add a thick layer and it'll last for a while. =)

    Re: fleece

    Oh, also, for the fleece you've got to have some highly absorbent stuff underneath and change it every day. =)

    Ya they work pretty well. Over all towels work well but they do have to be changed every day.

    Proabably. Most likely. But I am not positive.
