    I have an 4FT X 8 FT x 2 ft high brooder with 25 Plymouth rocks 25 goldlinks and a turkey .. they are 2 weeks old and don't seem to like the paper towels over the chips anymore. they pull them up .. with the size brooder I have could I go 3 days before changing out the wood chips ?

    Most likely. You'll notice otherwise. You probably won't have to completely change it all either. Just mix some new in with it. Of course, as always, just my experience.
