    I know everyone says pine shavings are OK, but what about the real fine pine shavings--almost like sawdust (but not dusty if that makes sense) I did have paper towels over it, but they kept shredding them, so now they are on the shavings. I don't want to hurt them?

    eta:they are about 3-4 wks old.

    I know Acre of Blessings uses the really fine sawdust shavings and hasn't ever had any issues with them. The one time she gave me some to use, the chicks had a ball dust bathing in them! [​IMG]
