I have 5, 4 day old chicks, I have paper towels on the brooder floor. I put some bedding pellets in yesterday but they went crazy eating any tiny parts they could, and they took the large pieces and banged them until they could get pieces small enough to eat. I removed the pellets... I have both pellets and pine shavings and had my heart set on pellets as what I have read they are much better for dust control. My question is when can I put pellets or shavings in the brooder without fear of them eating too much of it? I know people put them in from day one, perhaps I should have done that? Everything I read for tips, said to wait a while so they know what is food and what is not.
