I did a search on 'cat litter' and found pages of entries talking about using litter boxes and cats and their problems. What I was wondering about last night was, has anyone used actual CAT LITTER as partial or full bedding for chicks in brooders to keep the odor down? If it keeps cat poo 'silenced' it ought to do the same for little chicks, but are there any health issues/dangers associated with using it? I would think it would be a good solution to keeping the little ones in the house until they 'feather out' since we still have chilly (40-50 degree) nights here in S.E. Indiana. I wanted to keep them in the enclosed garage but got to thinking when the temp drops they might get too cold even with a lamp. And I really don't want the odor in the house.
