Is Kiln dried pine the same as natural pine that has no chemicals added? I haven't been able to find any pine bedding that says kiln dried but did find some that said "all natural pine with no chemicals added". Same or not?
 
It may not same. It could be air-dried only. It may still got the strong smell & oil.

Kiln drying is a process that removes harmful oils (which are natural but still no good for pigs). I buy Norstar Kiln Dried Pine Shavings from a tack and feed store. It is also extremely cheap because it is sold in bulk for horse stalls. The performance has been great.
 
Here's what I get...

The stuff I bought doesn't really have a smell at all. I think the package said no oils also. Hmmm.
