    I want to vaccum my carpet, the chicks are on my room & I have some shavings in the carpet.
    They are about 3 weeks old.

    Will this give them a heart attack ? :O

    It will probably scare them so you might want to make sure they can't hurt themselves when they freak out. [​IMG]

    Glad they're okay - it sounded like a good excuse not to vacuum, though.

    Heck, I brood mine in the basement and use the shop vas to pick up the shavings and food they dump out. They do fine.

    I always vacuumed, they never cared at all. I could tell they were listening, but it never seemed to bother them.
