Are these pine pellets from Tractor Supply ok to use?
http://www.tractorsupply.com/en/store/tractor-supply-coreg;-pine-pellet-stall-bedding-40-lb

They're all that I can find! Unless there's some place I haven't thought to look yet. I've looked at 3 different Tractor Supply stores and both Home Depot and Lowe's and this is all I can find. Are they ok to use? I really want to switch to wood pellets and fleece by this weekend, but just don't know where else to look.

Do they have accelerant added? Do they smell strongly of pine? Then no, they can't be used.

If not, they're ok.

Try feed and seed stores. They sometimes have better choices.

No. They smell too strong, in my opinion. I use them for my cats in their litter boxes, but not for pigs.

Dang it missed the 10 minute mark... I also saw a lot of the reviews on this last product were about guinea pigs, but the first one only had one rewiew about using it for guinea pigs.

I'm beginning to feel like a broken record. See the quote below, from earlier in this thread.

Yeah, I saw that, but I only saw it online so I can't tell if it's super strong pine scented. The store is about 30 minutes away and I didn't know if it was okay to get. I was trying to check before I went out there. I'll see if I need anything else while I'm there to check out the pellets. Thanks anyways
