That was the BIGGEST reason I didn't have them in the basement...as it is we have our chicks in the cabin with us (if I had a garage they would be there not inside) and I have been begging, okay ranting, that the new coop NEEDS to be finished like 2 weeks ago, because I can't stand the smell of them any more! I couldn't imagine living with it full time! YIKES!
It should be finished today...but then we still need power to it. We were going to run a cord from the generator, but decided a couple of days ago to rig up a solar power system - sooo...I must wait a few days more to get all the things we need to get that hooked up. And hopefully, I will only have to deal with the dust, smell and big gals indoors a few days more!
My mistake for suggesting we start them early inside...should have known it would be more than 4 weeks.
