Aubiose Bedding

I heard positive comments about Aubiose Bedding, I use wood shavings, Does anybody know where to buy from, They sell it in Omlet, but the delivery cost is prohibitive.
What do people use for bedding, as the days are getting shorter the hens spend more time inside and you need to change the bedding more often.

I just use sawdust mixed with a bit of hydrated lime. The lime killes bacteria and soakes up some of the damp. Interested to hear what others are using with birds that are roaming in and out of the shed.

That's interesting,I was wanting to sprinkle lime in there coups but wasn't sure if it would be bad for the birds so good advice,I'll do that from now on!!!
