I am getting the first week of april some baby chicks. MY plan is to place paper towels on the floor until they know food, then change to beddings shavings. Can I use and be safe hardwood shavings/ i can get them for practically nothing, from someone who makes furniture with hardwood., is it safe, for the chicks and the full frown chickens to use as bedding

What I have read is that hardwood is more likely to mold...so you have to keep an eye on it and change it more often.

I don't know for sure about chickens, but black walnut will kill a horse in a hurry. If it's walnut, I'd stay away from it.
