I am confused about the use of wood shavings for new baby chicks. I have read on this site the recommondation to use them but have also read that in the first few days they may be harmed by trying to eat them. I have also read not to use newspaper as the ink may be a problem and they may get splayed legs. What are we supposed to do? I am expecting a delivery of day old chicks in less than a week.
