I am planning on getting more chicks in spring. I thought I remember hearing somewhere that one type of wood was bad for them??? I have always used TSC brand shavings without any problems. I was just wanting to make sure!

Howdy bock!

I believe that TSC brand shavings are pine ~ and fine to use. You should stay away from cedar shavings, as the oils in cedar affect the chicken's respiratory system. Hope this helps!

The chunkier pine shavings tend to last longer in a coop but the fine ones look nicer and keep feather legged chickens cleaner. I don't know if you'll have the option where you are but that's something I've been noticing as I've been experimenting over the summer.
