  3. They are cute. Give them a week, they'll be smelly...

    You shouldn't have them on newspaper, it can give them spraddle leg. It's too slick. Shavings or paper towels...

    I have pine shavings. But I was worried that too much dust might clog their nostrils. Is it ok to put some in this early?
