I just switched my brooder bedding from hay to pine chips and my 1 week old chicks keep digging around and pecking at the chips, almost looks like they are trying to eat it. I was thinking they are just looking for bugs.
Is it too soon to start throwing bugs in there for them to find?
When should I start doing that?
What kind of bugs to start with?
Is there anywhere to buy them??
