What type of wood shaving should I NOT USE for my new ducklings?
no cedar, oil can be toxic
cherry and walnut shavings are dusty and may cause respiratory problems.
red oak shavings may stain feathers- but no harmful side effects that i know of.
straw allows places for mites and lice to hide, if they arent a problem it is fine.
well I will be keeping them inside until they are feathered. pine is ok then? They wont get a spring time here due to the cold winter season approaching but I will have them a shelter built.
pine is fine, just make sure its large enough flakes that they dont confuse it with food.
Well making sure the bedding is not slippery so no newspapers and frankly, i found sand awful, i tried it with some call ducklings, ick never again!
