I've raised hundreds of chicks on pine shavings and never had a problem. Good absorbency and odor control. Straw bedding for chicks is a pain the butt.

Chicks naturally have the instinct to scratch and dust bathe, I want to encourage healthy active behavior especially in meat chicks, so I use the shavings.
