    Alright I will admit I'm raising 4 button quail chicks...not chickens! D: BUT, today I have moved them to their permanent home with softwood bedding. Since the move, they have been digging and dust bathing in the chips. One button I named "hei hei" (Like the retarded chicken from the movie Moana) constantly pecks at the plastic eating up small pieces of the wood? I'm worried they're going to get sick from eating the wood...and is this normal?
