Hey everyone! My chicks are getting here next week and unfortunately my chicken coop isn't built yet. So, I plan on going to the store tomorrow and buying the biggest plastic tub I can find and keeping them in that until it's too crowded, however, my parents want me to keep the chicks in the garage because, 1. They smell and makes lots of dust and 2. We have 3 cats in the house. So I just was wondering if I could keep them in my garage all the time, with a heat lamp of course. Should I cover the tub somehow? And how long do I have before they grow out of it? Oh! Also, do you think that I could possibly cut two big tubs sides of and connect them for a bigger brooder? I know it's silly sounding but I'm on a budget. Thanks for the help!
