Well, let me rephrase that - I have all the proper supplies needed for baby chicks, plus a cardboard box to start them out in, then a larger rubbermaid to move them to when they get a bit bigger. My problem is I really don't have a suitable location in my house to keep them. I've been wracking my brain for a month trying to figure this out! We have no spare bedrooms, a very open "living area" and no garage. I was thinking about putting them in the laundry room (closet really), but they would have to be ON TOP of the dryer, and I'm afraid the noise and shaking wouldn't be good. Do baby chicks really make THAT big of a mess? Do they smell THAT bad? Really I'm thinking the only alternative is to have them in our den somewhere - like under the corner coffee table? ACK- I'm so frustrated that I don't have a better place for these babes! What do y'all recommend?
