    I was just wondering if I could use pine shavings or wood chips for bedding for chicks.

    Yes you can. When you first get them, till they learn where the food is, you may want to lay some paper towels on top for a couple of days or so, then remove them. They'll eat some, but not usually many. Probably dont taste great, LOL.
