I found out my chicks are being sent out Feb 10 (12 sal faverolle pullets and 2 roosters)... I'm not quite ready! (was expecting in April but honeslty can't wait! ) Sooooo... I have a nice heated dog kennel in my garage. There's a raised, standard steel bathtub in there that's not hooked up yet Would the tub be too cold for the chicks? I'll use a heat lamp and use papers on the floor of the tub, and can cover with plywood and hrdwr cloth. Maybe even a sheet of cardboard taped down to the bottom so nothing could get under it. Would the dog's barking be too stressful for the chicks? Any thoughts or suggestions? My other options are a big cardboard box or a rabbit cage that I could keep in the garage or house.
