Yes, and be careful if you are just putting in sheets of newspaper as it can be hard for them to walk on even at that age.... They are doing what comes naturally, scratching the "ground" which in their case in newspaper. I would suggest watching them carefully a they really don't need to be ingesting newspaper.... Great luck!
