We use chemical free wood pellets for our kids. Found at Rona during the heating season for 5$ ( 40lb bag), it makes for a better financial alternative. It won't clump so it safe for ferrets.

I don't know if Rona has them out yet. If you wish, you can PM me if you want some (as I have extras).

Both rona and home depot have lots now!  If you are too far away, you can check a farm supply store to see if they sell wood pellet horse stall bedding.  it's the same thing for only a couple of bucks more. Still a way cheaper and cleaner alternative than yesterday's news......Smiley

That is so unfair, my guys still think that it is so much fun to play in.  And, last time Skyler was visiting with his brothers and sister, they all thought it was so much fun that they all decided to play in it, except the one they chose, was not as clean. Fun, Fun so they all had a bit of a clean, what else' a girl to do.  But my guys thinks it is as much fun as the rice bin.  So it is the wonderfully expensive swheat.. for their bottoms but at least they are using their litter boxes again, while they are in the cages at least.  Now outside of the cages is another matter.  What makes well trained ferrets untrain, I am sure we could all write a book on that topic.

I use something called SwheatScoop... its made from wheat, and is 100% safe. Low dust, and cannot harm them if ingested. Plus, it is flushable, and clumps GREAT!

For those running the shelter, it may not be the best option since its not as cost effective as some other products, but for home use and up to 11 ferrets (I speak from experience here). There is no smell and cleanup is a snap. We do clean thoroughly twice daily though.
