Hey, very nice chicks but if you want to keep them alive....I'd get rid of those cedar shavings. Cedar lets of a toxic fume that can kill chicks.

OH my, I would put them on something different then cedar shavings. I think I read on here cedar is bad for them they will eat it.

But yes I love them too. My silkie went broddy again I can't wait to see those little faces. Your's are beautiful.

Thanks for the memo. Cedar is all that I have on hand at the moment. I have used it with my 3-4 week old's without any problems, but I think I would rather be safe than sorry with these guys. I just replaced it with some timothy hay for now until I can run into town tomorrow. They sure are louder than my other little ones. Chatty!

I know what you mean about them being loud but I think they think because they are so small they need to act big and make a lot of noise. LOL

I used cedar on all my batches last year with good results, I think it depends on the ventilation and if it gets wet.

I'm sure your new babies are ok, you are a good chicken mom for replacing it.
