you could use the chips but they dry out a lot quicker than coco fibre and you cant allow them to burrow in bark chips

Yeah, coco fiber all the way. I've used bark in the past and it sucks. If you try to add water you just get puddles.

Most pet stores should carry it, usually in compressed bricks. Look for "eco-earth" and / or "bed-a-beast."
