I bought a bale of pine shavings from TSC. I got one under an overhang thinking that way it would not be wet. Even though there were no visable tears in the plastic, the shavings are very damp. By the time I figured this out I already had the 1 week old chicks in temporary quarters and the brooder cleaned out. I used a hair dryer on the shavings for awhile, buy they still were damp. I put paper towels over part of the shavings so they at least would have a dry place to sleep. Should I be concerned?
