What about moisture levels in nest boxes? does using wood chips / easibed / peat effect the humidty in nest boxes, what way do you keep the humidity up with yours

we have found that easibed/and peat will effect humidity in the nestbox,which is a good thing when you have breeding birds,our grey hen will bath herself to add water to the substrate when she knows the humidity is too low....amazing really

aubois horse bedding , its like easybed but more absorbant idea for nestboxes and brooders , tried alsorts of other stuff and this seems to be the best for us, I do know breeders of budgies and other small birds that use it

in these horses beddings like aubois and easi bed, is there any risks to the birds / chick from eating it or any treatments that are on it ? also do you still put peat under neath it and how thic do you put it in the box. Im curious as I can easily get either of those beddings and wandered if they would be better for my birds. thanks everyone for all your info
