I started my 10 chicks and one pea fowl I recently hatched in pine shavings... what a freaking headache!!! It smells even when you change it everyother day.... the Chris are in the feeder tha the watered is cloged with chips wverytime I check on them. So I went out on a limb and bought some play sand yesterday. So far I am living it ... no smell at al and the water era are so much cleaner!! What is the best way to clean out the sand should I just pour it through a sifter of should I buy a litter box scoop? Thanks!
