We have not ordered chics, yet. My son has asthesma, strong peanut allergy, mild allergy with dogs and cats. He takes an inhaler (pulmicort) once a day as a preventer for problems. We have not called his doctor yet to see if chics in the house for a month or two will be safe. I have no issue with keeping the chics in the garage. What would worry me would be drafts. Any opinions? Experiences? Thanks.
