I have baby chicks that are 5 days old. I know you are not supposed to put them on newspaper in the beginning , but man, they are going through alot of paper towels! They are soooo messy. Once they learn to get around really good, is it ok to switch to newspaper or no? I am going to put them in a different brooder when they get a little bigger , but the little banty chick's legs are so tiny, I was afraid to put them on hardware cloth just yet. What do you think? I appreciate your help!
