I ordered chicks from Ideal and was told they would ship on 8/20. Well guess what, they arrived today! I am not set up with my brooder yet! I got them temporarily set up for tonight, but I'm concerned with their bedding. What should I use? I've got newspaper in there now, because that's all I've got. But I read that newspaper could cause them to become sprattle-legged. Is the newspaper ok for a day or two? These are black, silver laced, and golden laced bantam cochin babies...and they are sooooo cute. I will post pics as soon as I get over the shock of "premature" chickies! I'm not upset that they arrived early, but I'm very upset that I wasn't notified that they would be coming. I was 40 miles from home when I got the call from the post office!
