my last bale of Aubiose was really dusty.
Do you know if rapport holds together better than Auboise?? I find it's very flakey and doesn't make a nice surface substrate. I haven't tried it with a deep layer though.
No, sorry I don't. I had heard about Rapport through a previous thread on bedding started by Sarah C and thought that it sounded a good one to try as my last bale of Aubiose as well as being dusty, cost £12.50 so Rapport sounds worth a go from the price point of view also.
Details of suppliers can be found on the Hemcore website that produce Rapport http://www.hemcore.co.uk
I have copied the tread that Sarah C started for interest; I've bought a new (to me)product for the mice this week.For use with equines it's called Rapport.Looks like aubiose but is made from the softened stalks of rape seed oil plants.Dust fee and supposedly highly absorbant,worth a try.£8.99 for a big bale.I bought a bale of hay at the same time and looked at haylage a product that looked like hay but apparently has more feeding benefit for horses.I zoomed in while working and have a tracker on my van so couldn't dilly dally and find out more.Any one know if haylage would be superior for mouse keeping.
I hope this is ok Sarah C ?
I apologise if I am not going the right way about things with Quotes/copying threads, I'm a bit of a techno-phobe to say the least.
