Which is quickly followed by disintegrated box.
Maybe I had extra messy chicks but I was changing their shavings 2x a day and the bottom literally fell out of the extra-thick trampoline box I had them in and oh what a MESS that was.
Plastic bin isn't expensive since it's a one-time purchase.
I used disposable hospital bed pads this go round, layered a couple on the bottom with a thin layer of shavings on top. My absolutely FAVORITE chick bedding so far, just pull the corners of each pad to the middle, dump the shavings/poop mess into the compost and the pad into the trash. No poop soup or even damp bedding so far, the pads absorb it all.
