My baby chicks should arrive in the next few days. I, of course, will keep them in their brooder in my house until they are old enough for the coop. I have little, yippy dogs that bark at squirrels, the neighbors dogs, visitors, you name it! They will be separated, but will be in the vicinity of the coop and I don't want my baby chicks scared to death so how can I avoid that? Please don't tell me to retrain my dogs as they are old and set in their ways... we've tried!
