I am getting, at most, 6 new chicks in the spring. I have a spare 65 gallon aquarium, which is 36 inches long by 18 inches wide. So that is 4.5 square feet for 6 chicks. Would this be a suitable brooder for 6 chicks? I worry about ventilation with the glass sides. I will have a screen mesh top. What I like about it is that they will be very safe from my dogs and cats in this set up. I will even use the nice oak stand I have and we can sit around and watch them like fish LOL!
