I'm not too well versed in litters you can use for rabbits. I know that wooden pellets are an option. Would these wooden pellets be a good option for a rabbit?
They're advertised as 100% natural. Obviously not advertised for use in rabbit litter boxes so there's no information on that.

We use wood pellets. If you live in the USA we get the pellets at farm and horse type stores. Tractor Supply is where I usually purchase them. For a long time I was using it wrong. You just want to lightly line the pan with pellets, add water and see if you are happy. At our store they seem to have 2 different manufacturers and one was light and the other dark but they were wood pellets.

We use wood pellets in the bottom of our litter boxes and cover them with a layer of kiln-dried wood shavings. Each day we cover the fresh bunny-berries with more shavings.

For some of the rabbits we cover the pellets with hay; however, urine-soaked hay generates its own stink and we need to dump these boxes more frequently.

Kiln-dried shavings are safe for rabbits because the detrimental aromas have been cooked out of them.
