My chicks are 7 days old. How do I change bedding from paper towels to builder's sand? What do I need to watch for?
How to change from paper towels to sand bedding
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
I switch to sand from a towel after a week or so. Mine have had a little bowl of sand while they were on the towel and have no problem with not eating all the sand once I switch.
I just remove the towel one day and instead of replacing with another clean towel, I put sand in it and put the girls back in again.
