I have read a few posts here on BYC about people who are using pellets for bedding. My questions are: How soon do you use them for chicks...won't it bother their feet and be wobbly for them? Are there any drawbacks? I am trying to keep the dust level down while they are in the house (day 2 now, so still have awhile inside). We have shavings ready to use, but are still using paper towels (again, it's only day 2) and I am concerned about them eating the shavings and found the posts about pellets. Do you need to remove them frequently to prevent cocci or is stirring it up everyday all that is needed? Any other comments welcome too!
