    Yes, you just need to stay away from cedar. Plain old pine or aspen works fine.

    I have three 11 week old girls that I have used pine shavings with since they were five days old! I wold say yes you can use them! Pine chips are probably just bigger pieces but I don't see why you wouldn't be able to use them! Hope this helps!! [​IMG]

    May I ask why you just have "a" chicken? Do you plan to get your chicken a friend or two?
