    Help! I have just moved my 10 day old chicks into this, their old brooder got to small! They keep eating sawdust and flying round will they end up hurting themselves??

    You can put some paper towels down over the shavings for a couple of days until they learn where their food is. I wouldn't worry so much about flying around- chicks do start to get a bit bouncy in the brooder. Just make sure they have a top to the brooder so they can't fly out.

    How cute they are!
