My chicks will be shipped in 2 weeks, I just went out and bought a heat lamp and food. Now for the brooder part: Here is what I am contemplating... 1. Shredded newspaper. (I have a confetti shredder and LOTS of newspaper on hand). Other than having to change it often, are their any drawbacks health wise? 2. Pine shavings... do chicks EAT this?? Are shavings dangerous? Is this a safe option? 3. Any other bedding you can recommend?
