just got my first chicks yesterday, so I have a lot to learn.
I put paper towels over my new chicks wood shavings so they wouldn't eat the shavings. I read I was supposed to somewhere. I was wondering how long should I keep them there? I've changed it twice already today and it's all covered in poo.
Also, the little chicks are getting a lot of poo on the bottoms of their bellies. I try to wipe it off but it's pretty sticky. Is that a big deal? I don't want to wipe too hard and hurt them.
