    Hello.. We have 16 new baby chicks! Oh boy are they cute but, they need changing a lot!  In about 2 weeks, we plan to move them into their deluxe 8'x12' coop my husband has built them. We are wondering what should we put down on the floor? I've read mostly about pine shavings but, would straw work just as well? Where would we purchas pine shavings? How deep should this be?  Thanks for sharing your wisdom!!  :>()=<
