I have two beautiful two and a half week old chicks. I have been keeping them between my classroom and my home at the weekends (I live right across the street from school). I am currently building a coup so that they can go outside when they get a bit older but one of my housemates has been complaining about having them in the house at the weekends and claims that they're giving her allergies. They are losing their baby fuzz so is it possible that this could flare up my housemate's allergies? I really think she's just opposed to the idea of having the chicks around and is using the allergies as an excuse but I wanted other people's opinions. Has anyone else noticed worsened allergies by having chicks in the house?
