Can I use something else besides pine shavings for my duck pen? I'm allergic to it!!

I bought 6 pekin ducks and I love them! However, found out shortly after that I'm allergic to the pine shavings I use in their pen. I get hives and my eyes burn. Is there something else I can use that is comparable? Thanks for suggestions :-)

Ducks make really adorable pets. You can use almost any type of bedding for ducks and pine shavings are not even necessary. You can use straw or any type of dry wood shavings. Some people keep their ducks in wire cages with straw bedding, but it is important to keep the bedding dry and clean. Keeping your ducks in an outdoor cage which sits on the ground can also be rewarding. You can design a pen that is similar to a dog or chicken pen.
