Cedar shavings for nest boxes (Poultry)

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

I keep seeing cedar shavings used in chicken nest boxes. We have loads of cedar trees in our land. My question is, by cedar 'shavings' do you mean real small pieces or can I just run the small branches through my shredder and call it good? Also, what about the needles on the tree - any use for these? Thanks! Stace
