    Being a newbe to this chicken thing I often wanted to see pics of chicks as they grow so I could compair with mine. Here are 3 pics of my buff orps and black austrailorps. They are growing like weeds and I can't get over how fast the feathers grow. This last week has been a real joy watching them grow. John

    Hi John...VERY CUTE!!! I'd recommend though getting some pine wood shavings in there to help with the mess and it will also help the little ones in learning how to scratch for feed. [​IMG]

    MT, I read somewhere on this site to wait 2 weeks. I have the pine shavings in the garage just waiting. Do or don't do? That mess in the brooder is just in 4 hours. I clean nights and mornings. John

    I thought pine shavings were fine after 3 days, and that the paper towels were only so they don't eat the shavings. You should be fine to put them in now. They are so cute!

    You don't have to wait 2 weeks. I'm getting ready right now to put my 3 day olds out in the shavings. Just till they know where the food and water is and have their footing about them.
