Okay, probably because it's late, I need someone to reassure me on something. The chicks just started scratching in the pine shavings in the brooder. They're pecking at the bottom of the brooder too. Now, I know its normal for chickens to scratch and peck but I'm worried they're eating the pine shavings. They know where their food and water is and have been eating and drinking on a regular basis. I just need to know it's okay and they aren't going to hurt themselves IF they do eat the shavings. Guess I'm a first time worried chick mom. LOL!
