Re: Nesting material?

I'd also suggest pine shavings, paper and paper products tend to wick moisture and can promote mold and bacterial growth, some birds will actually do house cleaning duties and when using paper it may stick together making it harder for them to expell it from the nest box, it also tends to flatten out and lose its cushining value after a short time of the parents going in and out of the box.......
