    It seems like a cute idea as long as the birds have enough stimulation and space im just curious!

    I'm sure someone must. I kept chicks up to 10 weeks in a brooder. Dust (and it's a weird kind of thick dust) was everywhere. The air quality was horrific and it took awhile for my lungs to recover. I wouldn't recommend it. [​IMG]

    PS: Plus, I had to get my laptop professionally cleaned and still need to clean my desktop.

    I raised 6 chicks to 6 weeks old in my house. I don't have a good pic of the set up but we covered the brooder with netting to help control the dust and feathers. Our friends thought we were crazy, but we'd do it again in a heart beat![​IMG][​IMG]
