Step 1:

For this tutorial I use feline fresh pine kitty litter to make saw dust bedding for my chickens. You also need a bucket and water.

An alternate source would be pellet stove pellets. Cheaper, tho you may have to buy in larger quantities. <br>A couple of notes:<br>I've worked in commercial egg laying operations. You should wear a dust mask while handling the litter, not dust germs. <br>If you had two beds with of sawdust, you can leave one to sun dry/decontaminate. Over time you'll get mites in the bedding. Leaving it to dry and be exposed to UV, kills them.
<p>dry conditions and UV kills Mites? Good to know. I may be in for a challenge as far as dry goes. You have to have gills to live in Florida.</p>
One company is doing organic. They use a spray made from garlic.
Equine bedding is even cheaper, it's pine pellets like the cat litter but a 50 pound bag for $6 at tractor supply or other agriculture supply stores.
<p>Wow that is cheaper. Thanks.</p>
