For the first few weeks of life...
Wire floor isn't good for chicks' feet. I cover the shavings with paper towels for the first few days, because they eat a lot of it. They won't die, but. They need to be eating food and not shavings.
I happen to have a bunch of doggie pee pads I no longer have a dog for, so I thought I'd try them out in the brooder. We're only a few hours in, but so far so good.
please update how they work I have some too if it works out I might just use them till they are gone.
Industrial paper towels 1st week, then pine shavings sprinkled with grit for next 6 weeks.
I use wood shavings, and sometimes shredded paper towels if the wood shavings are making a mess!
Pine shavings and/or hay, depending on what I have available.
