I have a couple of questions that I am hoping the wonderful community of BYC can help us!
My chicks are 1 week old (I think) and starting to feather out on there wings and tails. I have them on potty pads and paper towel. They sure do poop a lot! When do i switch there bedding to pine shavings and once you do switch over what is your method of cleaning it? Once a day or add shavings on top of old shavings? What are the pros and cons of shavings, straw, or sand? What age do you put them outside? I don't have a cover on the brooder. What age should i put a cover on? Thank you in advance for your expertise!!!
