I'm nervous

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi just bought our chicks yesterday. Kids are really excited and so am I. My question is how often should I change the wood chips for the chicks? I have already done it twice and I wasn't sure if I was being crazy.
Thanks

Welcome to BYC.  My rule of thumb is :  clean frequently enough to keep the chicks clean and dry and the odor non existant.  Click on the 'Learning Center' located at the top of the page, and good luck with your chicks.  Too frequent changing is better than too infrequent.

As sourland said, the Learning Center will help a lot. You can also use the search box to find information and always feel free to ask questions. We were all new at some point but BYC members are great about helping each other out.

 

You'll do fine :)

Stay calm Backyard chickens  is here.  Take a deep breath, exhale slowly, and enjoy the chicks.
