There ya go! Make sure you wear a particle mask -- it's dusty work. You'll also want a pusher rod (stick) handy in case you put too much in at once and it makes a bridge. Happy shredding!
Straw for Chicks? - Page 2
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
Try straw. You may just like it. I've used straw, mostly, for 50 years. I don't think Mrs. Ingalls had wood chips on Little House.
Straw is not "good for chicks"?? Seriously, modern people say the darndest things. Sure, I've used wood chips and even a mix of straw and wood chips. I think if a person wants wood chips and likes them, that is completely fine. But honestly, birds have kept on straw and/or hay for centuries, for pity sake.
Or, you can do what Mrs. Ingalls did and use paper towels.
Ha Ha. Very funny.
Charles Ingalls Worked at a saw mill, so he might have had wood chips. :)
Seriously, I think you are right. Straw works great.
