What about the newspaper I shredded it.I used newspaper before
You think the chicks are hurting the chicks that are just pips? And was that a "No" about the paper towels?
KEEP the newspaper in there as you have it, just push down on it to flatten it and put layers of papertowels over it for the first week! so their little feet can get around and your good! and then after a week pull up the papertowels and you have the newspaper thereafter!
Oh my goodness sumi! What a difference in size! She was one pretty lucky baby to have you to take care of her, and from the sounds of it, the other chickens too. Amazing how smart they are. Not enough credit given. I hear folks saying..that was one stupid chicken, yeah, stupid like a mule, and we all know that they are stubborn, not stupid.
X2 this is what they do. Plan on keeping those hatched babies in there for at least 24 hours. They are not even fluffed yet.
Chicken hawk shredded the newspaper...
Yes I don't have paper towels
Sometimes newspaper works fine, but very often it causes splayed legs. Much easier to prevent splayed legs than treat them. To be safe, it's best to use something that gives them traction. Even a cloth towel or a rag, or wash clothes.
then use the newspaper and find an old towel you can toss or old tshirt you can toss later on use it the first week....
just so they get traction
or if Ur can explain his method for using newspaper ?? that shredded stuff is too big for them they will tangle in that
CH shredded the newspaper. The chicks should be okay now...
