I am just starting to raise some baby chicks. I am starting them off in boxes with heat lamps and all seems easy enough. But we are getting 25-26 and we don't have big enough boxes to allow them to stay in them without getting cramped as they grow. So we figured we'd convert a room in our basement thats about 10x10 to let them grow and feather out. Now the issue is it is a cement floor, but the way it drains and our septic setup means we can't really spray it clean without flooding our basement. My wife and I were thinking maybe buy a sheet of that green fake grass stuff from Lowes to cover the floor in the room and up the walls a ways so we can drag that outside and hose it down and move it back in for cleaning. So I was curious is anyone has done anything similar and can tell us if this is a good idea, is the fake grass green stuff is safe enough for the chicks, or if they have any other ideas to use in that room. Thanks.
