    With 2 rabbits, a 40lb bag lasted about 2 months. Remember, it doesn't need to be layered thick as it does expand. I also add fresh hay a couple times per day -- which also helps it last longer.

    Walmart carries horse stall bedding made of pine pellets that are safe/ kiln dried. Order onlin 6.99 for a 40lb bag.

    My 40lb bag last about 1.5 months for 4 bunnies. I change it every 4 to 6 days depending on the bunny. I do use 4 separate litter boxes, they are currently all housed separately.

    I clean mine every 4 to 6 days but I replenish the hay daily. You can always switch to horse stall bedding, it is essentially the same thing. 40lbs for $6.99 at Walmart online, $5.44 at my local Walmart.

    Would anyone mind posting a picture of the bedding they purchased from Walmart because I have searched for months and I have never been able to find any.
    I use the paper litter and 6.99 for 12 lbs.
    Thanks in advance.

    Different Walmart stores get different products. I've never seen wood pellets at our walmart. Wood pellets can usually be found in hardware stores like Ace or Home Depot. The wood pellets for horses can usually be found in local feed stores.

    Whether Walmart carries them in stores is very much a regional thing. I live in Texas and have never seen them there either. I also get mine at tractor supply... any feed store/livestock supply store should have them (and bales of hay, too).

    found walmart carried them for $15 a bag, but home depot and canadian tire had them for $6 - obviously canada, but home depot should have them.
