pine shavings? - Page 2

post #11 of 18

I catch my 7 week old Buff Orpington eating the pine shavings occasionally.  It hasn't seemed to bother her.  She is also eating chick starter and drinking plenty of water.  She has been pooping regularly as well.:yiipchick

The bigger the better. See my sig line. They see terrified because it's new surroundings but they will seen get used it and get back to normal.
If some is good then more is better and too much is just enough.
