I am curious as to what others use for bedding. I have this year's chicks due in around the 10th and am going to buy supplies tommorow. I have always used corn cob pellets. This has worked great for me, but I know most folks here seem to use pine shavings. I was just curious if there were reasons why you chose one over the other. If I remember right I began using the pellets after being told that chicks could pick at the shavings and ingest enough to be harmful. I have a neighbor that warns me agains using the pellets too though...something about them holding moisture. I have so much success using the pellets in the past that I will still continue to use them, unless someone here changes my mind So, what do you use?
