The pine shavings shouldn't hurt them if he eats them. There is some controversy about the oils being a respiratory hazard, however. I'd make sure your shavings are kiln dried.

What kind of pine is it? Aspen or recycled paper bedding is the best, but if it's kiln dried it's perfectly fine.

I use kiln dried...used to use Aspen for the buns, but it got to be too expensive between both bunnies and all the chins...so now I get kiln-dried pine for both species from the feed store. Perfectly safe

Great question and Great answers everyone Ya know it's strange how some say pine is a hazard for buns but yet I could never understand how could that be possible if it is safe for Chinnies We use Kiln Dried Pine as Aspen was getting too expensive
