    [​IMG] Has anyone used the deep litter method with a large cardboard box? This is my first time with chicks in a city setting. The last time I had ¼ acre and a well established flock. They are in the basement right now! All suggestions will be appreciated! Thanks

    people use card board boxes for brooders. But I would imagine you would have to change it out often if it were for long time use.
