hi Gonequackers and welcome to the Forum. We're all a bit quacked about poultry on here, so you'll be in good company.
Aubiose is really excellent stuff, highly absorbent, very comfortable, and easy to keep clean by regular poo picking - unlike straw, which is really messy stuff once soiled. I think many of us on here use it, but there are other, similar kinds of shredded bedding available - it just depends on what's available near to you, preferably without having to pay the earth for transport.
