my chicks are coming first week march, i plan on keeping them in the office for the first month or so, but i am in the northwest and will not have electricity run to the coop outside till it warms more, so i was wondering if it is ok to move them to the basement after cause everyone tells me it is going to smell. however, i will keep a clean brooder, but this is my first time, and everyone says dust gets everywhere. i do laundry in the basement so i know i will still go down and socialize with them, i just worry about proper ventilation. maybe im being a worry-wart, but if someone can let me know what to do, that would be so awesome!!! thanks so much!!
