Last week my chicks have been well behaved, for chickens at least. But the past 2 days they've gone on a food strike. Instead of eating their chick starter they eat ONLY pine shavings. What's with that? They had completely ignored it...not single peck. Are they really that stupid? What makes wood shavings so appetizing? It wasn't just a slight nibble, it was their food. It made me really worried so I finally switched back to layers of paper towel. It's day 16, I thought they got over this. They did it their first week, but now?! I liked the wood shavings much more, the dropings would fall to the bottom and I wouldn't see them. Making it much more appealing to the eye. Plus with paper towel they step all over their poop. Will they get over this eventually? These are my first chickens...so this behavior puzzles me.
