Can I use this sand as bedding for chicks?

Pets Asked on February 25, 2021

I’ve got some chicks around 11 days old. I am facing trouble with the bedding in the brooder. I’ve tried using paper towels, but they get wet and shredded within hours.

Now considering using sand that is left over from a construction project – it is used locally in concrete and mortar. Can I use it as a bedding for my chicks? Are there any considerations that I should be aware of?
