Hi all. I am new to this group and to chicken "parenting" and I need some help. My chickens have been eating their pine shavings and I mean ALL of their shavings! To the point that they are not eating enough actual food. I give them Nutrena laying pellets, scratch grains, and fresh vegetables daily. I have 7 birds that are 9 months old and they have approximately 250 sq ft of protected space. They can't free range at the moment because of hawks and neighbors dogs but we are working on a protected run. So I need some ideas about what I can use for bedding in their coop and pen besides pine shavings. I did put some leaves in there this fall but don't have access to any more right now. I really need to use something that I can buy and not have to "gather". Thank you for your help!
