Is it possible to have a brooder in a finished basement? I know that there are dangers of doing so because of smell, feather dander and clean up. But are these really things to worry about? I am thinking if you cover the surfaces and clean up well afterward it is a better environment than in an unheated barn. And you can monitor them more closely, they are more easy to care for when they are in your house. The brooder would be 10 x 6 for 30 chicks.
