It's only their first day and I think the towels are a little more challenging than pine shavings.  They do occasional FTL bursts, but that causes wipe outs a lot. By tomorrow, they  will be leaping out of the brooder.

Oh, they were promised meal worms from the day they were ordered.  We don't have any chick grit yet though so just crumbles for a while (I think that is better the first couple weeks anyway.  Let all their organs develop with an ideal diet (plus they don't know any better).  Later they might get some kale and grit.  When they start going outside they will be reaching the age where bribes are required... Then they get meal worms.

Ha...I should have known promises had already happened.  I do the same usually wait until they're about 3 or 4 weeks old before I give anything but crumbles to eat.
