I have three hamburg chicks who are almost three week s old and I just switched them from their brooder tub to a wire cage in the bathroom. They are warm enough but have been frantic all day. Crying and carrying on. I switched their bedding from shavings to pellets. These are supposed to be safe for chickens. They look like large rabbit feed pellets. And break down when wet into a sawdust looking substance. Their crops look very full and it worried me so I took out the pellets and laid the rubber liner down I used when they were tiny. Is there anything I can do if the are compcted and how do I tell?
