Chicks smell like pee

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just brought my 2 new baby speckled Sussex home and I didn't notice at the feed store that they smelled this way! How can I clean them safely? I've never had to deal with this before!

What kind of bedding are they on?

They were in pine shavings at the farm store

If you give them more pine shavings it might absorb the smell a bit...they pack them pretty close when shipping so tht may be when it happened...I dunno if I would try anything else, they are too tiny....as long as they are drinking and eating and pooing and their cage is clean and they are warm enough those re the most important things...
