Checking their crops daily is a good idea.

I put treats on top of my Freshbed because they were hard to spot and made the girls work harder for them - I'm not sure if that made it worse by encouraging them to peck at it.

It usually tends to be down to the chicken developing a habit of eating the bedding (which others then copy) rather than the type of bedding. I have to say that I have heard this about Dengie before.... shredded paper is another one.
