I have 3 one week old chicks in a large rubbermaid (85qt). We have chicken wire zip tied over the top (to protect from toddlers + cat). Wondering if this size brooder will last us until they can go out to the coop? Our house is very small so I'm not super keen on the idea of having a larger brooder inside, but worry about the cat having unsupervised "visits" with the chicks if we put a brooder out in the garage. anyone have a similar set up that lasted?
