I have two boar guinea pigs and change their litter every 4-5 days, so I use quite a bit. This product appealed to me because I thought it would compost better than paper litter. Although this product smells nice, it is not nearly as absorbent as paper, and the urine went straight through to my coroplast and ruined it. I have successfully used it as a top layer of litter, with paper for absorption underneath, but I don't really like maintaining and storing two different kinds of litter, so I will be going back to using just paper. I purchased at least 6 bags of this product and found them to be very consistent.
Will update with more time

Bought this for my two rats with respritory problems as I was at a loss and have tried so many beddings. It arrived today I noticed a little bit of dust so I shook it out and tried running a few damp towels through it as I am trying to be overly cautious. So far, as expected it does have a quite strong smell but you do get used to it fairly quickly. I did mix it with a bit of shredded paper to hold form a bit more if they dig. And I would recommend to mix it with another bedding if you have small animals that want to tunnel like mice or hamsters to hold their burrows as this is thin and won't hold well. Overall no problems and I'm noticing less sneezing already hopefully this bedding will stickBought this for my two rats with respritory problems as I was at a loss and have tried so many beddings.

Awesome bedding for me rats!
on Dec 17, 2021
I have been switching between beddings recently trying to find a good one for rats, and this is the one! When I put it in their cage it had like one spec of dust and that was it! So it's awesome because it's not dusty, it's super soft, and it doesn't have a strong smell, and last but not least it holds up in the cage super well with odor! 10/10
Okay, not for me

So I bought hemp just to try it out and see if I’d like it more than the paper i was using at the time. It definitely functions well enough, and is safe for my rat girls, but it doesn’t hold shape well enough for them to burrow as much as I would like. Also it has a very distinctive smell— not bad, but definitely overpowering if you’re near the open bag. Plus side is it is VERY easy to notice spoiled bedding, as it gets significantly darker once soaked.
Hasn’t been the best for me, but it might work well for you!
A mite sad making
on Nov 20, 2021
I was excited to try a hemp bedding for my new Guinea Pig, Rorschach, because of the ecological advantages. But as I went to open the bag I noticed a number of mites around the string to open it. I have many plants, and an infestation is less than ideal for them, and my cat, Callisto, has many sensitivities. I immediately decided not to use it, put it in a plastic bag and put it outside. I'm going to continue getting a traditional bedding, but I do not expect this to deter everyone.
now my go to bedding.

I was skeptical at first. I had sand in my coop for a while but decided to switch because it was always so dusty when I would clean the coop. This doesn’t smell! It’s also super fluffy and my girls love it. No dust when I rake. I think it keeps the coop a little warmer too. I’m sold. I will be using this from now on.
great for chicken
on Nov 14, 2021
I have an in-home chicken and recently decided to try this bedding as I have been using wood chips which haven’t helped with smell much. This bedding is more absorbent and helps some what with smell (in addition to all the other stuff I use). It is definitely something my chicken seems to enjoy more and vacuums up easily as well.
Nice bedding for small pets

So far, this bedding has been good for my ratties. I combine it with shredded paper bedding to help with absorption and to make it last a bit longer. The best thing is my rats have not been sneezing, and that’s what matters most.

Totally dust free. I'm a big fan, works great, animals seem to like it, very soft. However I have a very large enclosure and in order to fill it I would be spending hundreds a month. I think this would be perfect for animals with smaller enclosures like rats or small coops and litter boxes. Great product, I really love their hay. I look forward to seeing more Eaton products. Definitely pricey but wonderful customer service and quality
This bedding is great

My only problem with this bedding is it doesn't come in a big bag, I need about 4x's this bag for my chicken house for the winter. This would be awesome if it came in a big brick like pine shavings does; and had a price comparable to pine shavings.
