I have almost finished my new 4x4 brooder. It will have a linoleum floor. I am wanting to get as many opinions as possible with your own experiences about wether to use sand of wood shavings. Stuff like which may be easier to clean. I know when using shavings the chicks should be on paper towels for a few days, is this the same with sand. What kind of sand is recommended. My chicks are coming April 23 or 24.
