I think it may depend on how many you have (2 chicks verses 30). I had about 20 chicks at a time in brooders last year and they were definitely getting noticeably (read irritatingly) dusty by the time they were a couple of weeks old.

Oh ok..thought it happened sooner then that! I only have 4. They are in my living room where we can spend time wiyh them right now. They arent dusty or smelly yet. I plan to brood outside as soon as the coop is done (another week or 2), just enjoying them indoors tremendously right now. Hopefully it will time out well that by the time they start dusting up we'll be moving them out
