Kay, Got a delema here, Could NOT pass up on a ton of Button Quail eggs and free FREE Silkie eggs, and i live in south western PA....on the top of a mt in the woods...gets VERY cold here. I already realize theres just about no way any of these eggs due to hatch within days of now will fare well outside once they're 6-8 weeks old...SO with that said...how do I ensure to keep down on the smell that will be in the house? I could have 8 silkie chicks, as well as 30+ button quail chicks. I have a bigger brooder for the silkie chicks which will do well for them for about i'd say 4 weeks, but after that I'll surely have to upgrade them...the button quail chicks will be fine in my various smaller brooders. I'm much more concerned about my silkies. Their poo. Any indoor advice for how to keep smell down? I'm willing to clean their brooders out as many times a day as possible...however I'm curious if along with cleaning if theres any reccomendations you acn give me so I don't get any complaints? My husband and I live and rent from m yparents who live here as well, and my mom has a bloodhound nose i swear! LOL! So, any advice, any cleaning or natural scent eliminatiors i can use along with cleaning up their brooders a ton of times a day? I'll do anything!! I want them healthy happy and safe all winter long AND....i am not able to put heat lamps outsdie so that's not even an option.
