i got this today because i was tired of my piggies carefresh getting all over their fleece, but when i opened it it smelled pretty strongly, not even a woody smell, kind of weird tbh.

i have it only in their kitchen with fleece over it, but i?m not sure if they really like it as they aren?t frequenting their kitchen as much anymore.

has anyone had any experience with it? does the smell go away after a bit?
 
I've never heard of it, but it's expensive. My cage holds over 6,000 cubic inches, and it costs me about $15 to fill it, and it lasts for months. I use horse stall bedding, but you can also use wood stove pellets as long as they don't have accelerant added and don't smell strongly of pine.

i plan on using that next. this was kind of a gift because my friend knew i was in need of something else, so i figured i might as well give it a try.

speaking of strong smells, is the strongish aspen smell of these going to upset my pigs? it has definitely gone away some, i just dont want it to hurt them.
 
Aspen isn't as problematic as pine, but if the smell is very strong, I'd let them air out before I used them.
