    Hi
    I don't have an allotment or a big garden :(
    So do you think it would be ok to raise baby chicks up in my attic until they are large enough to sell on? Obviously i would have to make a brooder and a larger area for them until they are at the correct age to sell on.

    Do you mean raise them until they are big enough to sell? Yes. You can raise them just about anywhere you have the space, access to electricity for a heat lamp, and the ability to clean up after them. I raise mine inside during the coldest months and just make sure to clean their pens every so often. In the spring and summer, they go outside which is much easier on me, but it is possible to raise them inside if need be. Hope that helps!
