I use shredded paper because we shred our old envelopes etc, so it's free!, and the hens seem to like the paper. When it gets too icky, I recycle it through the compost bin and add fresh stuff to the nest boxes.

I am going to keep the shredded paper idea in mind for when the time comes. Waste not, want not.

And Laura, I hope you get your orpingtons, I just love my australorps and orpington. They're good friends to each other and to us people, too.
