So I have 40 chicks now and they are ranging in age from I would guess 4 days to about 6-7 days. I have them in a large box, and the lamp keeps them plenty warm, and they are eating and drinking like Champs. I have a couple questions though. Is Pasty Butt hard to catch? I seem to spend more time looking at the wrong end of these chicks. I'm so worried I'll miss it with so many running around. Second, I have them on newspaper, and they seem to be doing fine. Should I still bother at this point to switch them to paper towel? We were just going through so darned many of them! I had them on newspaper the first day home. I have pine shavings and pellets also available, so I guess at some point I would switch them to that? How do you know when it's ok?
