I have a 2 week old EE and she loves eating pine shavings in the water dish. I clean it multiple times a day but I've even caught her eating them dry! I offer chick grit and I'm trying to teach them to use a nipple waterer but I want to make sure she will be ok.

Make sure to offer lots of grit. eating that much wood shavings can be fatal. I switched to natural wood pellet bedding for this reason, it works great and lasts me a lot longer in between changes.

I think I may end up switching. They always have a bowl of grit so not worried about that but I don't want her to be hurt.
