Hubs is allergic to most everything, though allergy shots have helped a lot. I want to brood the chicks inside, only three, and I have a plastic base cage for them already. I wanted to put them in the dining room where we have a wood floor and I already have a light shelf for growing plants (they'll still get a heat lamp). I have read a lot of the threads here -- people talk about the dust/dander/chick stuff inside. Will this be a problem with only three? I mean, more than I can handle with a daily sweeping and damp mopping? Will it be reasonable to expect I can keep them indoors for two months? Then they'll go outside into our tiny yard and some sort of coop (yes, probably an eglu ) so allergies won't be a problem going forward. I just so hope we can keep them inside for the start so the kids get involved, you know?
