I'm getting my first chicks next week--I'll have a total of 3. The plan is to have them in our unfinished basement for at least 6 weeks or so--we won't have their coop & run built until then. I've been reading a lot lately about how much dust chicks create, and how smelly they get, and that it can be bad for your lungs, and how eager people are to boot them outside. My question is, with only 3 chicks, will they really be so bad? I have asthma and some allergies anyway--not terrible--it doesn't keep me from having dogs and rabbits in the house, and riding horses--but still. Are chicks going to make our basement toxic?
