    Two week old babies have been on paper towels. Is it time to switch to shavings?

    Yup. I would switch to shavings at this point, now that they can tell the difference between food and wood[​IMG] . They have much more fun digging around in the shavings than the paper towels.
     
  3. I would switch them over. My chicks have always been on shavings from day one. I use the fine flake shavings because they are smaller and wont cut the chicks legs.
